I have been working at Creative Circle part-time (more than an year)

Pros

This agency probably provides the most recommendations of any in the creative fields. The work ranges tremendously--some of the clients are major, others are startups. It's a good way to build a portfolio if you're starting out, and pick up some freelance work if you're established and looking for your next job.

Cons

The pay is well below industry standard. Because they have such a large stable of talent, you have to make a strong case that you're right for the gig. Freelancer gigs mostly occur on site.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Establish two tiers of talent, and pay the upper tier more as a premium service. Allow your younger talent to develop, while paying more senior people better.

    Pros

    None. None. None. None. None.

    Cons

    These guys are worthless. There is great talent that has applied there and they won't place them because they are age discriminators and want people for nothing. It's a waste of time if you are as seasoned creative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get professional!!!

    Pros

    Listing almost daily; prompt payments,

    Cons

    More concerned with their commissions than their representatives and focus more on short-term assignments rather than cultivating relationships. No accruable personal days or health benefits no matter how long you've been with the agency. Compensation is always on the low-end of the scale because they specialize in quantity not quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become better experts in the fields in which you represent therefore you can demand higher minimums from your clients.
