    I have been working at Deltek


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


    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.

    Interview Details

    The process took about two weeks. I applied online and it consisted of an initial phone interview with an in-house HR representative and then an in person interview with three members of the research team. The actual interview was straight-forward with pretty typical questions. I felt that it was a little impersonal, though. They seemed like they had already filled the position or didn't like what I had to offer.
