    I worked at Pomona College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, great community, claremont is a beautiful place to work. The brightest team of admissions officers you could possibly work for.

    Cons

    Environment is a bit high-strung, but it's kind of understandable considering Pomona is ranked very highly across the country. A lot of power given to senior positions at Admissions Office

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to make every admissions rep feel included! There are so many bright minds in the room, it's a shame when every voice on the team is not heard.

    I worked at Pomona College (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about Pomona is the incredibly talented student body and faculty. In addition, the facilities and endowment make working at Pomona an excellent experience.

    Cons

    The relative isolation from Los Angeles was less than perfect. I couldn't help but find myself wishing that it were closer to a major city.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I was always particularly impressed by the accessibility of funding whenever students or faculty needed it.
