    I have been working at The Creative Group as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    They have free online software training. They ofter group health insurance - a mini-medical plan with fairly low rates but relatively low annual benefit allowance. They have direct deposit.

    Cons

    I left a full time job to freelance and was given encouragement that work offers came in frequently but that hasn't been the case. I have gotten only 2 interviews and one part time assignment through them in many months. I suppose the most super highest qualified people get these assignments. If they want you for something they're totally in your face - otherwise they don't usually return calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to be more up front about addressing expectations applicants have. Applicants should be told "you can't really depend on this" and I would only register if you have other things going or other sources of income.

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

    Pros

    The folks I worked with were very professional. I really felt they had my best interests at heart and they were there for me whenever I needed them.

    Cons

    The pay.

    Although they have helped place me in two long-term freelance gigs (for which I am grateful) the pay is not adequate. I am currently making nearly half of the hourly rate I would normally charge. I realize TCG has to make profit, however if they shared more of the money with the freelancers they employ, they would be able to hold on to them for a longer period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread the wealth.
