    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.

    Avantages

    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.

    J'ai travaillé chez Creative Circle à temps partiel (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    I was able to add the names of some very cool creative agencies to my resume. I met a couple of very nice people who have allowed me to used them as references. I got to see my work on TV a few times which allowed me to brag to my close friends (no one else cared).

    Inconvénients

    I only worked 1 to 4 days at said locations. I spent most of my time alone and the only creative direction I received was mostly through email. 90% of the time, I needed to bring my MacBook Pro to get the job done and if I didn't have a "MacBook Pro", I wouldn't have qualified for the gig.

    Conseils à la direction

    Creative Circle, I recommend helping employees with their resume to make sure they stay current with the verbiage used in their bullet points. I have a friend who was also working with Creative Circle along with me and didn't get gigs he was qualified for due to his poorly written resume. I didn't find out until he asked me to look over his resume to get my opinion. Properly written resumes are of high importance.

    I have not found there to be many cons except sometimes the job leads take a while between each other

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

    Avantages

    Great company benefits - great bonus structure - great national office community - you work with great people that are probably very similar to yourself since it takes a certain type of person to be in sales or recruit.

    Inconvénients

    Can be extremely stressful - very low lows and very high highs.

    J'ai travaillé chez Creative Circle en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    Cant think of any.

    Inconvénients

    No offers, out of range positions

    Conseils à la direction

    Reviewing as someone who worked with Cretaive Circle for prospective jobs in advertising - pretty useless. Your inbox is spammed with positions that are practically not even relevant to your experience. Upon my interview with them, we spoke about roles that fit my needs. 90% of the roles i receive are nowhere near that. I have 3 years of experience and i receive positions well out of my league asking for 10 years of experience. Will not be using these services again.
