    I have been working at Creative Channel Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Left alone and not micromanaged. Easy job and no worries about long hours. Office environment fun and relaxing. The people at the office are fun to work with and enjoy I the environment. Word on the street do not work in field services. Field managers are known as winners and complainers according to many at the office. Senior managers do not like them at all. I guess field complains too much from what I hear. I do hear all the managers are temps and receive no benefits which is weird. Maybe that is the stink but I really don't know. I've met a few and they are chill.

    Cons

    I agree with previous reviewer feedback "There are people there that have been in that company for decades. Almost locked in a cave and locked in a time capsule" No new bright ideas and comp very stagnant.
     layoffs every year. Executives only listen to inner circle and gives each other high-fives. I have shared my ideas and they do not care to listen. No new business resulting in layoffs each year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have to agree with previous reviewer "Be more involved with employees. Actually listen to them and focus on the strengths of your employees. You have alot of smart employees but due to your lack of involvement and favoritism you are blinded"

    Pros

    You can get away by doing the bare minimum. Very flexible scheduling. Telecommuting is great. Can work from anywhere in the world. Unless you kill someone you probably won't get fired.

    Cons

    The same thing that's for pros is the cons. There are people there that have been in that company for decades. Almost locked in a cave and locked in a time capsule. Leadership is confused and not involved at all. On the surface it looks like the company offers slot of opportunities. But when you look at things it is all smoke and mirrors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved with employees. Actually listen to them and focus on the strengths of your employees. You have alot of smart employees but due to your lack of involvement and favoritism you are blinded.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance
    Committed not only to serving clients but to employees

    Cons

    Job security is an issue if you are working on a field team, the contracts can be relatively short if you are working on a client team and it could leave you out to dry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you need to do to ensure the continuation of programs.

    I have been working at Creative Channel Services part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked here since 2011.
    Great for student looking for an easy dollar that you work to your schedule. As a student you cant really get that kind of flexibility doing anything else. A great move from standard retail you are seen as a professional and a person with knowledge. You have to want to help customer and the brand.

    Cons

    No compensation for using my own gear. Used my own SD cards, car,oil,phone, computer,gps you name it it was out of my pocket. I would drive upto 200 miles in day of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the client happy make sure they know what they are getting. Keeping them involved is important but make sure they dont take advantage of them. Some clients think they are the direct bosses and try to make you do things outside of the description. Management needs better communication skill at the lower level. The National managers are your best contact. I would always go straight to them.

    Pros

    Ability to make your own schedule. decent pay.

    Cons

    No benefits or travel time. passive agressive management. lack of training. No bonuses and little to no advancement possibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More trainings and training materials needed. Show that you LOVE the clients you represent. There is no positive reinforcement in this job. When you do a good job, reward your employees. You will get better employees that way
