    Pros

    Many career opportunties to promote from within the company. Good benefit package with medical, dental, and 401k.

    Cons

    Poor internal communication. Internal office politics takeover instead of policies and procedures that would simply get the job done. Sometimes management disregards the need for a life outside work. Depending on the position/job, you may be required to work 70+ hours a week.

    Pros

    GREAT Benefits, vacation is good!!!

    Cons

    No consistency through out the Alpharetta office.
    No Flexibility in work hours.
    Management from departments do not work together to make the ENTIRE company suceed.
    Company does not hire QUALIFIED employees. It's more like the buddy system when it comes to hiring.
    No opportunity to advance unless you are friends with upper management.
    Lack of training through out the company although they have an entire department just for training.

    Advice to Management

    Give me thorough training
    MANAGEMENT needs an overhaul.

  8. Traditional company that needs more internal department communication and higher compensation rates.

    Pros

    - They have an excellent employee benefit pkg that rivals any company out there.
    - Annual merit raises and bonuses are consistent as well.

    Cons

    - Upper Management/ Executives can be slow to change direction if a particular process is not working.
    - Compensation is low in comparison to regional averages in comparable positions.
    - Low employee morale.
    - High turnover at the Manager, Director, and VP levels.
    - Different departments run like separate companies (totally different cultures- no consistency)

    Advice to Management

    - When taking on a new client that has unique performance guarantee requests, reach out to POCs in all departments invloved in meeting those PGs so proactive measures can be put into place.
    - Be more proactive in regards to Account Management review.
    - Audit SPD's bi-annually to ensure promises made are being kept.

    Pros

    Health benefits are great. This is the only pros I can think off.

    Cons

    There's just so many things wrong with this company since company president Gary Radine took over. Bad office politics and redtape is rampant. Delta management don't treat their employees right. They pretty good though in POWER TRIPPING. They instill fear in you and create a toxic atmosphere to work in. They off the bat tell you who's the boss and who's the follower. Very employee unfriendly to say. Real sad!!

    Cronyism is a norm in this company. You don't have the chance to get promoted unless you know someone from the inside. It's who you know will get you ahead. Even though if you are highly qualified you are not a promotion material unless you are a friend to a manager or supervisor. Forget about promotion or lateral move because all openings are in Georgia or Pennsylvania. Salary goes up 1 to 2% a year which doesn't keep up with the inflation. This company has one of the lowest salary in America.

    Delta has laid-off more than 500 employees since the crash of 2008. This company treats their employees as "dime a dozen". You are easily replaceable. Company loyalty is missing. Management don't care about their employees. It's all about numbers. All they care about is their bonus to the expense of the people working under them. They run us to the ground and they won't even thank us for our hard work. Management are NOT TRAINED people skills which is very sad. They lack the personality to work in peace with their staff and what's really upsetting is they think they are God's give to mankind. You have to tip-toe around them or else you will be situated and brought to the meeting room to be lectured like a little kid. They sure love to harass their employees. They're very good in making up things to get you in trouble.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs a management over haul starting from the top. It's too broken to fix to tell you the truth. Gary Radine can go and bring his puppets along with him. They run this company to the ground within a 12 year period. It has to stop now.

    Great company. Management is dull and subpar with a one track attitude. Many employees under appreciated.
