Very hands-off contracting experience with not-the-best communication.

I worked at Creative Circle

Pros

contractors are considered w-2 employees, so no worrying about paying self employment taxes
they provide health insurance
after six months, you get a few paid holidays a year

Cons

communication is lacking between the recruiter and the other two parties - the contractor and contractee had different understandings of the exact contracting situtation.
was contacted by other recruiters for other positions while in a contract and after having been moved to a full-time employee

    I worked at Creative Circle as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    If you can get an assignment here, working freelance offers some flexibility. Theoretically, you can make your own hours.

    Cons

    Told by a former CC recruiter, some ads are phony. They low-ball the talent and misrepresent some assignments. In general, creative temp agencies represent the client's best interests and not the talent's at all. On-line pre-testing doesn't accurately determine talents experience and skill level.

    I have been working at Creative Circle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Creative Circle cares about people not just numbers. Great corporate support as an internal employee. I always feel like they are looking out for the best interest of their employees. They pay well, in a weak economy it is nice to have a company that still pays strong commissions.

    Cons

    Better family health plan would be nice but they have improved in this area a little bit each year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
