    I worked at Deltak as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    They are doing great things in the online education space. There are some really great employees who are intelligent and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Everyone in the department I was in was more concerned about who wore what than the job at hand. Is you chose not to engage in the drama, your skills didn't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the drama and the gossip.

    Pros

    The people are friendly and have skills in their field. They are doing cutting-edge work in the area of online education which is exciting. They pay well. The office is clean. The company is growing rapidly. The culture is supportive and positive.

    Cons

    Noisy office. Working from home is not really available to all employees. The location is in the middle of no where in Oak Brook, IL. You have to drive to the office as there is no public transportation nearby.

    Pros

    Great employees who seem to love the job and growth available. Lots of room to advance. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Time off policies not as great as they once were. Employees come to work very sick to avoid using there PTO days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with great training to build strong employees.

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

    Pros

    Good culture and work environment, especially for working families. I feel I am paid slightly above average and enjoy what I do.

    Cons

    Majority of middle management is coming in from the outside. Sold to Wiley 18 months ago and rapid growth is expected, now that certain policies and procedures are in place they are losing the culture they once regarded so highly. There are a few 'cancers' within the organization in Sr level management that continue to grow with no accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more from within and actually post job openings internally. Have a more unified and consistent training program for your rapidly growing sales staff.

    I have been working at Deltak full-time

    Pros

    The culture is upbeat and there are a lot of younger (25-35) people working in the company to keep the energy going. Benefits are good and PTO is good, even for new hires. The problem is finding time to take the PTO. It's a great company to work for if you're looking for non-commissioned sales.

    Cons

    Management is hit or miss. Since the company is growing so rapidly, there's a crunch to hire and quality people are not always hired. If you're put under management that is willing to go to bat for you then you'll get promoted. If you are stuck with a newbie then you may be out of luck. Also, if you don't network and get to know upper management then you'll have a tough time getting promoted also (they need to know your name). The focus is very Admissions driven so there is a great career path for anyone in Admissions but not much for everyone else in the company.

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

    Pros

    You get a chance to work with people who are not just intelligent and capable, but friendly, positive, and caring. Superb culture and collaborative environment. Flexible work conditions which allow individuals to produce their best work.

    Cons

    The company is rapidly growing, so it is hard to find time and space to share ideas across the company. The onboarding could be improved. Teams can get silo-ed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more time and space for cross-department and cross-team collaboration. Make sure that there are enough resources to accommodate the growth. Assign another employee (not just the manager) to help during the onboarding process.

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Oak Brook, IL

    I worked at Deltak full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary ranges good for recent college grads. Entry level sales job if you want a salary not a commission based position. If you can handle a daily grind of dial and dial more, you will like this job.

    Cons

    Tied to desk and constant metrics shoved in your face. Admissions department has become very micro managed and there is not room for creativity. If you desire some more daily variety it is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember your roots that is what got you where you are but you are going to crash and burn the culture and lose what was once special.

    I worked at Deltak full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay is good, lots of celebrations

    Cons

    tied to desk completing outbound phone calls on bad inquiries just to hit the number of dials required. Not appreciated unless you are in the good ol boys club. No place to advance laterally. Training program is a joke and doesn't work, everyone adjusts it after training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When managers are disrespectful to staff, don't take so long to demote them. Don't lead people on by telling them there are career opportunities if it's not the case. Management and Senior management are not on the same page for promoting from within or allowing lateral transfers.
