    I have been working at Creative Circle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The only good thing that I can say about working for this company is how quickly I found a roll- but based on what I've heard from others this is a unique situation.

    Cons

    I was recently informed that due to negligence on the part of the payroll team, I've been being under taxed for months and now will owe more than I can afford in taxes come the new year. Though I was thorough and filled out all the necessary forms for working in one state but living in another, the team made a mistake and choose to inform me via email, after work hours, and did not even have the decency to apologize for this error. I am absolutely astounded at the fact that this company remains in business despite mistakes like these- AS WELL as the fact that they provide little to no benefits for their talent and make it extremely difficult to attain a permanent position with the company that hires you through them. I choose to accept this position because I was lucky enough to not need the health benefits and I'm a recent college grad with not much experience. I thought that this would be a good way to build up my portfolio and step into the business world but this company seems to cost more than it's worth.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Creative Circle for less than a year

    Pros

    -Recruiters work quickly– be prepared to rework your resume often (and within a matter of hours) in order to get in front of the right clients -Opportunities are with top tech companies. Great way to get your foot in the door -Recruiters advocate for you in front of clients -Lots of opportunities for remote work (depending on industry)

    Cons

    -Health insurance is offered through a company called Benefits in Card. Since this isn't a major health insurance company, coverage is limited (though you can pay more for a higher tier) and isn't accepted by other insurance businesses (OneMedical, Oscar, etc). I wish they would find a solution that provides more coverage.
