      Pros

      Pretty easy going. Focus on team events and holidays. If you work as a recruiter or account executive its a great experience.

      Cons

      Not a lot of room for growth and development.

      Underrated

      Pros

      Gives you 3 holidays a year, sick hours add up, and offers pretty good insurance after working 1500 hours from my knowledge.

      Cons

      Doesn't tell you the benefits transparently unless you ask for it, takes a big chunk of the pay, and sometimes the recruiter can be bad

      Bullying from “Leadership.” Terrible Culture!

      Pros

      Great money if you you’re willing to sacrifice your values and claw your way to the top.

      Cons

      Where do I start??? I was ruthlessly bullied and gaslighted by “leadership” during my time at the company. I experienced gender discrimination and harassment from the highest level. HR is a joke and doesn’t nothing but back up and cover for their toxic leaders. No one and nothing is good enough unless you’re the top few producers in the company. I still have PTSD from working there as do many other former employees. Sales, metrics and motivation are all driven by fear. It’s super cut throat and backstabbing by your teammates and “leadership” is rampant. Creative Circle is a horrifying place to work internally. Ask anyone that’s been there longer than a year, in any market, and isn’t in management or operations. They’ll tell you the same. Run!

      Great training, numbers driven

      Pros

      Great people to learn from - you are learning from top performers & the company has implemented a strong training program; opportunity to make a lot of money

      Cons

      As there are a lot of tenured people who have ownership over large companies (and all their affiliates / branches), it can be hard to find companies not being targeted that are large enough to give you big earnings; it is very much “my way or the high way”’mentality - you are educated on how to do things and not encouraged to do them any other way (v. Other companies encourage you to do what you think is best)

      A great way to make good money and feel terrible while doing so...

      Pros

      You'll make good money and hopefully a few close friends. It's exciting at first but gets old quickly once you start dealing with clients and crazy candidates.

      Cons

      I worked at CC for a few years and while it was a great place to make good money and fast, the culture was terrible. The company is run by a bunch of people who have been there for 10 plus years and are super out of touch with how to be a good Recruiter, Manager and quite frankly a good person. Everyone is always bickering and at each other's throats and you can't rely on management to make things right. You'll never get positive feedback from anyone. It's always you can do better even when you're at the top. They just push and push and don't stop. There is absolutely no room for growth, especially with some employees being there long term. You couldn't pay me to go back. Oh and the benefits suck.
