    I have been working at Creative Circle

    Pros

    The freelance jobs are with cool agencies. The duration of their freelance and contract gigs vary from days to weeks to months, even fulltime. Say no when you aren't interested and they will still consider you for all others. The recruiters are to the point, and great to deal with. They put personality and humour into it, while delivering all the details about a role. I've been working with them for many months.

    Cons

    They might tack on a larger markup than other agencies, but hey, they call me often with new opportunies that I wouldn't find on my own.

    I have been working at Creative Circle part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The freelance positions they locate are with professional agencies. This may lead to better things. They handle marketing, payment and overall communications well. They have found me more work in past year at a higher rate than I was able to myself, which is obviously a good thing.

    Cons

    Agencies see you as an expensive fix for a problem they are not staffed up for. This is because, as a client said to me, "CC adds a pretty good fee on top of your hourly rate". Be prepared to face pressure on this.

    I have been working at Creative Circle

    Pros

    Lots of contacts and contracts if you are willing to feed these cats.

    Cons

    Pure rip off. Hire senior developers at junior salary. Not honest about the % they take. No technical knowledge. Unethical.
