    Pros

    Working virtual can be a challenge but when you work for a company like Pontoon, they make you feel like you are sitting in the office with the rest of the team. Management always takes the time to show their appreciation to the hard work you do.

    Cons

    There aren't many negatives about working for Pontoon - they offer a great work/life balance

    Pros

    I have seen a lot of changes made. Pontoon is definitely moving in the right direction with leadership/process. I would definitely recommend working for this great company.

    Cons

    I currently do not have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up being transparent/honest with your employees.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Everyone works as a team, and the management currently in place has moved this company forward in so many ways. Pontoon continues to grow and it shows with the recognition from clients and new accounts being implemented.

    Cons

    office setting is old and blah. Need to update with newer desks and brighten up the office. no complaints otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    continue building a positive atmosphere. Current office manager Melissa brings life into the office, and is always going around with a smile. This office has seen some change over the last few years, and its nice to have a constant figure who makes it fun to come to work.

    Pros

    Good work life balance on most accounts
    Employees are great and fun to work with

    Cons

    Pay, Benefits, vacation, management, employee retention are all not acceptable for a company with a ton of resources. Simply put, they fail in these categories from a senior leadership perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Quit changing things all the time and actually pay more so good employees won't leave the company. 3 companies in the area start employees pay almost DOUBLE what you pay. Too much talent walked out the door in last 5 years.

    Pros

    Great pay, some opportunities, lots of locations all over the globe, some great helpful people

    Cons

    Two tiers of employees treated very differently and if you're an "associate" you'll feel left out, no benefits as an associate, makes it seem that is if you work hard enough you'll become a "colleague" but won't happen, lots of favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at your department heads, if they have a lot of turnover recognize that and try to fix it, allow the employees to have fair treatment that's the largest reason of why you loose people

    Pros

    Work-Life balance is good! Salary ok not at market level however.

    Cons

    Upper mgmt is very unprofessional, no room for growth or development. No training opportunities. Not a great company for longevity!! A beginners career only.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training for mgmt, provide growth opportunity for employees.

    Pros

    By far, the best career choice I have made. Pontoon truly cares about their employees and it shows. Plenty of opportunities for growth for those that work hard and strive for excellence. Love coming to work everyday!

    Cons

    Rapid growth makes it hard to keep up at times. It's all part of the experience and dynamic work environment though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees. Training, clear career paths and recognition show genuine appreciation for a job well done.

    Pros

    I've been with this company for many years and have been offered several (frankly more lucrative) opportunities to leave. Here is why I haven't: There are very strong colleague bonds here, a true work-family atmosphere. I have the opportunity to make a difference and I am valued for it. CEO, Mike Wachholz, has created a non-political environment, says what he means, encourages continuous improvement and innovation, is caring, knowledgable and always approachable.

    Cons

    Staffing gaps that have resulted from fast growth, in many cases, have caused a burden to existing staff. While I find benefits to be slightly above average and paid time off to be generous, compensation is lagging.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in building more effective support to customer-facing program and shared services staff (examples: dashboards, reporting, legal, finance, scorecards)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working for this company

    Cons

    Perplexed leadership team who are never available and are clearly overwhelmed. Strategy and policies change month to month. Small minds and no vision make for a ship that is sinking fast.

    Advice to Management

    Get out while you can. The curtain has been lifted. Customers are leaving in droves. You can't compete with real MSP/RPO organizations.
