    Pros

    You are paid I guess? If you don't have to hunt them down for your weekly checks

    Cons

    Freelance to full time jobs are bs. They rarely ever transition to full time, so it is a complete waste of time. The recruiters are sketchy and will always side with the client even if you have health issues/clients who mistreat you. Was paid half of potential salary through them. Just terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and use your moral compasses (if you have any)

    I worked at Creative Circle full-time

    Pros

    Company culture is very flat in terms of structure
    Good opportunity to make money

    Cons

    Recruiters are over-worked
    Candidates can at time be very overbearing
    Recruiting job is more much of a customer service role than an actual recruiter role

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to retain your employees. Too often great employees leave because of lack of leadership in their offices.

    I worked at Creative Circle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Constant and consistent job offers that not only pertained to my field of interest but met my skill level and acting as bridge between the clients and myself.
    - A freelance opportunity quickly turned into a full-time salary offer!

    Cons

    - It always seemed my contract was renewed or extended at the last second, as I was panicking for steady work.
    - There were a few hiccups regarding my paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! :)

    I have been working at Creative Circle full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic company culture, benefits, PTO, flex time, holiday schedule.

    Managers, Directors, and Executives are very approachable and involved in the day to day. These people actually care about who you are, not just want you are producing for them. Best culture I've ever been apart of.

    President's Club opportunities!

    #1 is uncapped earning potential! $$

    Cons

    More flexibility to work from home.

    Advice to Management

    If it's not broke, don't fix it! Keep it up!

    Pros

    Creative Circle is one of the best jobs I've ever had. All levels of management care so much about employees and their wellbeing plus the company culture is very encouraging. I still feel the same way about the company as I did when I started over three years ago, and my coworkers agree - this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The days can be long but I love what I do.
