    I have been working at Deltek

    Pros

    Working remote
    Work-life balance
    Great networking with other companies
    Market/industry leaders

    Cons

    This company is an acquisition magnet. As a result of this, there is virtually no job security. The latest set of "vulture capitalist" see the employees as liabilities (I.e salaries, benefits). The pay structure for commissioned employees was changed and a once $30k in commission is now down to 10-15k. Did I mention that our world load has essentially tripled and to save money the firm outsources to Makati. This was once a great company, at one point I loved it here, now I feel overwhelmed, overworked, and under paid.

    I worked at Deltek as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Team work, training, company values, flexible schedule, work-life balance, structure of the work, clear responsibilities, good guidance, good communication with senior management

    Cons

    Some of the work was mundane, daily responsibilities were repetitive, lack of diversity in type of work to be done, work began to be outsourced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider including more activities for interns and inter-department communications, try to offer more activities to increase relations between different departments, make sure interns have an idea of different departments as they could make good potential future employees.

    Pros

    Fun environment with great people! The best company I've worked for.
    Growing company; Deltek has more than doubled in past five years and continues to grow
    Lots of opportunity for professional and career growth
    Great work life balance
    Excellent CEO; engaged, approachable, and is setting the course for the next wave of growth

    Cons

    Not necessarily a CON, but Deltek is an organization that is evolving. You need to be able to adapt and thrive in that environment to be successful.

    I have been working at Deltek full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are fantastic including PTO, health insurance, and 401k. The availability of flexible work arrangements makes the work/life balance easier on all and increases productivity. The offer of tuition reimbursement and internal education opportunities (Deltek University) allow for growth within the company and personal improvement.

    Cons

    There seems to be a high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to educate and retain current employees, promote from within. The internal education process gets better every year - keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Deltek full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at Deltek for over four years and came to the company through an acquisition. Deltek afforded me the opportunity to expand my career and personal life in a fulfilling way by allowing me to work remotely, pay for my MBA, and reward my hard work by promoting me to manage a team in charge of a set of products. Deltek rewards hard work and those that are flexible to adapt to the ever changing market we work in. Deltek has confidence in their employees, rewards hard work, and promotes from within. Deltek's culture and environment sets the stage for employees to continuously 'lean in' to an excellent organization.

    Cons

    Deltek is continuously changing to adapt to an evolving market, it's imperative to be flexible and rise to new challenges and tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be very transparent and communicate to employees. It feels great to be apart of an organization where the E team and senior management is always open to feedback from employees of all levels.

    Pros

    Flexible Work Arrangements - this company allows me to work from home, and is very flexible when it comes to alternate working arrangements. A lot has been written out here, but every quarter we get a bonus, we have payraises, a competitive benefits package, great work-life balance, culture and people. The culture is one of accountability, everyone is accountable to themselves and each other. We have good opportunities for folks that want to work hard and advance their career.

    Cons

    for me personally no cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue investing in our employees
