    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, open office environment, friendly people, global company

    Cons

    As someone who has been with Pond5 for a few years, the company has had its share growing pains but overall it’s been a great place to work. The recent attacks by former employees are hard to understand or agree with and I am posting to bring balance to the conversation. Criticism about strategy and decision making I think are fair but I don’t think the environment is toxic and I don’t think most others who work here now would agree either.

    Advice to Management

    Invest and trust in your people. Bring back the fun. Lightheartedness is good. We are too serious lately.

    Interview

    Pond5 invested a lot of time to conduct a very thorough interview. There were a couple of office visits and some phone/video interviews over a period of one month. The role is central in a way that it has to interact with several teams - product, engineering and growth/marketplace being the key ones. So I talked to multiple people from each of those teams including their heads. The people team was responsive and professional throughout the process and I enjoyed talking to everyone very much!
