    Current Employee - Associate Software Designer  in  Okemos, MI
    Current Employee - Associate Software Designer in Okemos, MI

    I have been working at Delta Dental full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great starting position. Not enough room for promotion, as well as deprecated technologies, but it's still good experience and a foot in the door for other development work.

    Cons

    Very top heavy. I feel like there's more managers than employees.
    Company culture leaves a lot to be desired. It's an insurance company with a heavy focus on IT (that's the back bone of everything they do) yet they refuse to acknowledge this. They want to remain professional to the point of being kind of silly. They're very uptight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up a bit. Things are taken far too seriously.

    Current Employee - Sales and Account Management Intern in Okemos, MI

    I have been working at Delta Dental as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The internship for Sales and Account Management was a real business role. I preformed many of the tasks the full time staff does, and there are opportunities available to me inside and outside of the company because of the experience.

    Cons

    There are down times where there isn't a ton of work. It would be nice to have things to do or work on to help make the day go quicker in these times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has been great for me. They are extremely flexible with school schedules, and my advice would be to continue with the style of management they already have.

    Horrible "Public Affairs/Corporate Communications" department

    I worked at Delta Dental

    Pros

    OK pay, some good people, bonuses and some perks. Beautiful building and great volunteer programs.

    Cons

    Public Affairs department has severe issues and no direction. High paid supervisors that stab employees in the back and are extremely racist. If they think you are doing a better job than they are, they criticize each and everything you do to ensure they keep their job and also try to push you out. The gossip is a huge problem with bully tactics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the one woman that is constantly complained about, or one day someone will sue them!

    I have been working at Delta Dental full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good basic company to work for. Stable work environment with great facilities. Most all co-workers are good people to get along with. You should be willing to work unsuervised a lot. Lots of room for training,

    Cons

    Depending on which manager you work for they will be over shoulder the whole time or never. and you might be working weekends a lot and no flex time or you might be bored out of your mind with simple work. but hard to put training to use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lift the heavy hand.

    Pros

    Great facilities - workout room, cafeteria. Good location (easy access from I-96). Great co-workers

    Cons

    Human Resources has taken over the company. PTO must now be taken in 4 hour increments. Door reports are being run to make sure you're in the building 8 hours a day, despite addressing issues over the weekend or at night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like adults. Address the problem employees - not punish everyone else.
