    Pros

    The IJPs are hugely favoured here especially if you want to grow in your career according to your interests. There's a good bunch of managers leading the programs and mentoring their team members for the best. When you switch, they provide an attractive hike percentage over your last drawn pay.

    Cons

    The management ignores the people down in the hierarchy. The annual hike percentage is going on below par compared to each subsequent year(3-4 years back the minimum hike % was 12%, and this year it's 0% before they scrapped off the mimimum 3% hike decided for everyone doing average and higher percentages for the rest doing excellent. So, that can may be showcase that the business isn't doing so well.

    I worked at Pontoon Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Office culture, Free food, Office location

    Cons

    Managers are horrible, they just shout at you, if there are any issues they literally run away pushing them to the subordinates. And they are afraid of peakon surveys. Top level is not bothered even if we complain, they pay for one and give you 3 people work. I had worst experience in my complete career, I repent.

    Pros

    They have shift allowances You can grow if you are lucky

    Cons

    Low Salary than market Heads in India are just saving their jobs by showing they are taking cost saving actions for people in SSC. Poor Leadership is demonstrated by Heads here and they have been getting a saving grace from above Heads and HR are passing the parcel to each other if you ask anything HR is just to do transaction of your emails and talks rudely & adment. Admin Assistant now a days Such a good company globally is getting spoiled due to couple of heads playing around. Never expect any thing to happen for you in this company

    Pros

    The management encourages cross collaboration among teams, encourages transfers as per assignments of interest. You get ample opportunities to showcase your talents personally and professionally.

    Cons

    Higher management only focuses on the welfare and engagement of Advisory Consultants and above grades. Engagement coordinators are kind of treated like a contractor would be in other organisations.
