    Avantages

    They apparently do have hiring-side clients and will call you with opportunities. but...

    Inconvénients

    I am a very senior designer in a field that is in demand. When I told them my rate, a rate I was currently making with a current client that I got through another recruiter than Creative Circle, Creative Circle was only willing to offer me 50% of that rate! When I asked how they could expect a person with such experience to accept that, the Creative Circle recruiter said to me "well you will be out of work soon [my contract was ending soon] so wouldn't you rather make something than nothing?" - I was disgusted and insulted. When I pointed out that I am running a business and that my rate is my rate and to accept anything lower would be detrimental to my business, the recruiter said "well I disagree and think you should take the offer". I laughed at them and wished them well.

    Might be good for people hard up for work or just starting out but I would stay away from Creative Circle like a professional plague.

    Conseils à la direction

    Treat your talent with respect and pay them market or higher rates otherwise close up shop and find a job yourself so you aren't mistreating people with your insane business model.

    J'ai travaillé chez Creative Circle en Contrat Permanent (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    Nice people to deal with at the start.
    Great location.

    Inconvénients

    They push for freelance/contract work as that can get companies coming back.
    They say they know a lot of companies that they can set you up with, but they don't.
    They sell to employers freelance and contract and the benefits of it. It's killing the market for full time workers.

    Conseils à la direction

    You need to stop pushing freelance or contract work.

    Avantages

    The freelance jobs are with cool agencies. The duration of their freelance and contract gigs vary from days to weeks to months, even fulltime. Say no when you aren't interested and they will still consider you for all others. The recruiters are to the point, and great to deal with. They put personality and humour into it, while delivering all the details about a role. I've been working with them for many months.

    Inconvénients

    They might tack on a larger markup than other agencies, but hey, they call me often with new opportunies that I wouldn't find on my own.

    Conseils à la direction

    It would be nice if we could accumulate a paid day off or two, the more time we freelance through them.

    Je travaille chez Creative Circle à temps partiel (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    The freelance positions they locate are with professional agencies. This may lead to better things. They handle marketing, payment and overall communications well. They have found me more work in past year at a higher rate than I was able to myself, which is obviously a good thing.

    Inconvénients

    Agencies see you as an expensive fix for a problem they are not staffed up for. This is because, as a client said to me, "CC adds a pretty good fee on top of your hourly rate". Be prepared to face pressure on this.

    Conseils à la direction

    Adding some benefits to the employment contract would be nice and would win my loyalty for the long-term.

    Lots of contacts and contracts if you are willing to feed these cats.

    Inconvénients

    Pure rip off. Hire senior developers at junior salary. Not honest about the % they take. No technical knowledge. Unethical.

    Conseils à la direction

    You can only scam so many people before it comes back to bite you.

    Je travaille chez Creative Circle à plein temps

    Avantages

    The NYC department was always great - but my sympathies if you have to deal with LA

    Inconvénients

    If you don't get your timecard approved on time because, oh I don't know, your manager or supervisor forgets to sign off on it or does it late- despite your reminders to them, Creative Circle cuts you a physical paycheck ONE time - and the money for mailing it to you comes out of your pocket. After that you are out of luck. If you're time card ever makes it in late again for reasons outside of your control you go without getting paid for 2 weeks.

    If you call them to ask for help they'll simply tell you that they've already gone above and beyond for you (by mailing a check that you paid for) and you should have been better about sticking to their policy. They do not care about helping you after you have signed on with them, and the payroll department is particularly unprofessional and rude.

    Conseils à la direction

    Get a new payroll department.

    J'ai travaillé chez Creative Circle en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    Met a lot of friends while working here.

    Inconvénients

    Every day was exactly the same...You made cold calls ALL morning, then were allowed to leave the office possibly in the afternoon to go on client meetings. It was a very structured and micromanaged environment, which does not really work for me. I need an employer that trusts me to do my job, and that I will get it done.

    Je travaille chez Creative Circle à plein temps (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    They did an amazing job!
    I was just looking for a freelance position while I was at a full time job. The wonderful people at Creative Circle knew that I had aspirations to move up in my field so they took a shot and pitched a full time position to me. I am now an associate art director at a company I LOVE with plenty of room to move up in the ranks. I am so very happy that Creative Circle reached out to me and matched me up with this amazing company!

    Inconvénients

    I only got one freelance job, but I know clients can be finicky with pricing and time.

    Avantages

    None that I've experienced, it was just as if I never met or signed anything. Avoid wasting your time with them.

    Inconvénients

    This agency seems to post false ads in hopes of building their portfolio of candidates. You can expect to be forced into an in-person interview and then little to no contact. Lack of communication, lack of follow up, posting of inactive or false positions.

    Conseils à la direction

    Value the time of the candidates you bring in. If you cannot or don't intend to help them, don't waste their time!
