    Pros

    Organisation is globally knitted very effectively. Employees are empowered at adequate level and integrity levels are high. System is performance driven hence low performance and low integrity people get pushed out.

    Cons

    Clearly a leader in other markets and more focus on Indian market required.

    Advice to Management

    Innovation is our key to success. We shall drive it across regions.

    Pros

    I don't see any specific pros

    Cons

    Lots of cons are there:
    1. always try to do micro management
    2. no appraisal / hike
    3. always try hire employee who is ready to come with lesser pay or no Hike
    4. If you have any issue and approaching the HR , then after 1 or 2 time HR will not receive your call , or not reply to your mail or not come to you and try everything so that employee cann't reach to HR.
    5. Don't give leaves however you have enough leaves in you bucket which can lapse last month of the year.
    There are too many cons apart from above mentions points.

    Advice to Management

    Please think of your Employee too.

    Pros

    Good Brand name but not known , well intentioned and well mannered regional team. Good work life balance . Leaders respect yout time.

    Cons

    weak strategy to penetrate market , no visibility , huge resistance to change , unclear weak or no plans to train and upgrade staff . India is being treated as a low cost hub hence chances of growing to regional or global role are minimal. Too much screening for hiring however once project is lost , no time is spent to fire. Have lost too many people and customers in short time.

    Advice to Management

    Deliver on service promise. Pay attention to customer experience. Talk to the lost customers to know what has gone wrong. You know what you want to do and where you want to go and where you are in last 5 years.

    After 5 years if organisations in India do not know your name , then it needs some extra ordinary measures to be taken. ( Yes asking people to go under any premise is not one of them) India is not only a low cost hub. Invest in upgrading people stuck doing same things for long . Deliver on career promises being painted during interviews and reviews . Correct internal processes for recognitions , goal sheets and remain close to customers. And if you get people from outside to bring change , let them do their job. Best wishes

    Pros

    Pontoon Solutions and the customer I am consulting for provide the opportunity to work from home 1 day per week after 90 days. They focus on positive feedback and make sure to recognize you for contributions and exceeding expectations for the customer every chance they get. We work well as a team with multiple site and multiple teams working globally - they give us the technology to communicate effectively.

    (**most of these reviews seem to align with temps working for Pontoon - take them as a grain of salt if you are considering working as a colleague or associate for Pontoon!! This is a great place to work, takes care of their employees and is experiencing lots of growth!)

    Cons

    Working on the client site disconnects you from Pontoon Corporate so sometimes you feel out of the loop.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your succession plan - allow employees to share their goals and show them how to reach them. If goals cannot be reached in the assigned MSP program be honest and support employees with their career goals on other programs within Pontoon.
