    I have been working at Pond & Company full-time

    Pros

    Very good and dedicated senior leadership team. The firm is full of razor sharp and dedicated professionals that share a drive to succeed. Company does not hold on to unproductive staff or failing business lines, which are deadly to morale and the bottom line in consulting. Excellent diversity of clients, projects and people.

    Cons

    Pond managers expect excellence. If this is a con for you apply elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work team. You folks are inspiring leaders and it shows.

    Pros

    Made you feel at home during the first few months

    Cons

    I was a college hire and had no professional training. I was given several high profile projects with no formal training and no documentation on how to accomplish the task. I was not assigned a mentor so I had to figure out how to get the job done. I was let go after 6 months with no specific explanation what I was doing wrong and no formal documentation of what I need to improve on. Would not recommend College hire to work here. They do not provide a good working environment. I will be reporting them to the EEOC.

    Advice to Management

    You need to formally train your college hires and provide a senior technical mentor for assitance. You need to provide formal documentation on how a person is doing on their specific job functions.

    I worked at Pond & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of different types of projects. Some of the work is very rewarding. There are projects in some exotic places.

    Cons

    Ownership of the firm changed and so did the focus...and not in a good way. Upper management is completely insulated from the rest of the company. Little to no training, it's sink or swim. Always pressured to vote for "best places to work". This isn't the place to make a career, so many leave or are pushed out.

    Advice to Management

    Be faithful.
