I have been working at Creative Circle as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Creative Circle has a lot of connections and jobs. If you are talented, there were be recruiters trying to find you work left and right. They will pay 30% insurance health premium after 1000 work hours.

Cons

If you are making $25/hour, so are they - for doing absolutely nothing. There are other agencies around that offer the same exact jobs for a lot more - I am talking over $20,000 more per year. These agents are so dishonest and out for the interest of themselves only. They know little about the design industry and are poorly qualified for their jobs. This leads to poor placement (over or under qualified candidates for a job), which means a high turnover rate, and all the blame on YOU, the designer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A sense of value, qualifications, and good customer relationship management will give you better reputation in the industry and less turnover rates, for the interest of yourself and good talent.

    Pros

    I can't think of any good things to say.

    Cons

    This is an awful shop. Creative Circle is a shop full of fast-talking, dishonest and abusive (to their creative talent) commission-based sales people. Their creative staff is the lowest priority to them. I have direct experience with them and it's always been abusive, degrading, and disrespectful to me as an artist and a human being.
