  • Health Insurance(10 comments)

    Poor options, too expensive not enough offered.

  • Sick Days(6 comments)

    There are no sick days, and not option to put a side funds for PTO

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(5 comments)

    This feedback about Creative Circle regarding low PTO and sick time is VERY concerning. Studies show PTO time given for rejuvenation makes employees more productive. In 2020 onwards, professionals require more sick & PTO time off to take of their children, elder care for parents, and direct personal health. I strongly recommend to start giving at least 3 weeks PTO in addition to holidays. Considering this suggestion will attract more applicants and retain employees.

Amazing benefits package that has been

Accrued sick leave but that was minimal. No Vacation accrual, but this is really up to the company you are contracted with to put that value on contractors. I did not investigate health benefits due to having previous coverage, but they did offer 401K and the transportation benefit was helpful to get pre-tax dollars for subway monthly pass.

Creative Circle provides no paid benefits. No health, vacation, or sick leave. They provide outside services to sign up for healthcare, but the insurance is subpar to what you get on the health insurance marketplace. The only real benefit is payroll services so freelancers don't have to track their own state/federal taxes.

Great medical/dental/vision benefits, 401k (with matching), time off, and more.

Standard health benefits including health, dental, and vision. 401K and life offered. Also bonus things such as gym membership reimbursements and contests that might get you more.

Generally, benefits are good. I wish they had more PTO in the first years. Also medical insurance makes you pay much.

No sick days (they will give you hundreds reasons why you are not going to get paid), awful tracking time system and personal portal, no vacation days (you get 1 paid holiday for 1500 hours of work). The health insurance is incredibly bad.

It's good that they offer health, dental, etc insurance, and 401k, but the amount of health providers who are considered "in-network" is tremendously low if you live outside of the city, and too expensive for how little coverage and network is available (in their more expensive plans).
