Pros

Aggressive advertising and email blasts

Cons

Poor way of doing business without any commitment from their customers or agents. Beware the "if they like it they will hire you" line. If you work for free-= that is the value people will put on it.

Most agencies that serve the creative community work on a 200% markup in general- so just know that going in.

Advice to Management

Better screening of agents would be helpful.

    Pros

    none. none. none. none. none

    Cons

    Beware, just like a lot of staffing agencies, they drag you on to their office for an interview, promise tons and even call your references! Then they don't respond.

    Pros

    Creative Circle is a progressive company. A company that cares about their employees and gives back. We have full benefits, 401k with matching, numerous incentive programs, extensive and ongoing training. This is a great place to put your agency and creative skills to good use. Great work/life balance.

    Many of the negative reviews on this site are from people either in the email database that have never been contacted or people that have been contacted and for (some) reason weren't able to be placed. Creative Circle is one of many resources to a select group of people. As much as we'd like to help everyone and truly do try, it doesn't always happen.

    When you work AT Creative Circle you will be surrounded by the most ambitious, driven, positive and caring people in town.

    Cons

    This isn't a "con" but Creative Circle isn't a place for the lazy. You have to work hard in order to play hard. And, it is very difficult to manage a high volume of calls and emails from creatives that are in need of work but Creative Circle gives you the tools to manage this. You can't help every single creative person that walks through the doors, but we definitely try.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! All of the new benefits are amazing!
