    I worked at Deltek full-time

    Pros

    None. I can't think of any. I met the worst VP there, who has no professional skills and treated people really bad.

    Cons

    Don't go there. One the worst place I have worked for. The manager was very confusing and never dared to fight for your right. A small company with a bunch of incompetent people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people better.

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

    Pros

    Pretty good money and benefits and remote employee policy.

    Cons

    Poor mid management who were just looking to cover there own rears. Not surprising since upper management was in a constant state of flux.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear out the deadwood in middle management who are only there because they suck up to sr. management. You have or had good employees on the street who are frustrated by your lack of ability to truly see where the problems are.

    Former Employee - Human Capital Management Resource Coordinator in Herndon, VA

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

    Pros

    I had the autonomy to set my own hours to get the job done for the client. I got to travel around the country, work with people in different industries, establish and maintain professional relationships and make new friends.

    Cons

    I realized that at the end of every quarter, based on your required utilization, you never knew if you would be employed for the next quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some of the pressure off in regard to utilization requirements.

    I worked at Deltek part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good people working in the warehouse. Supervisors are extremely organized, keeping the place running smoothly without any hectic days. For a warehouse, that is definitely a pro

    Cons

    Not the greatest pay, but it is work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Work flexibility, challenging work; variety and complexity of work.

    Lack of clear career path (could be a pro as well). Volume of work can be daunting and overwelming

    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

    I worked at Deltek full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice, open workspace in convenient location with interesting clients.

    Cons

    Unable to instill performance culture, real change requires ongoing management and demonstrable commitment to employees. Execution suffers from a lack of accountability by leaders unwilling to take on risky, but vital projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mix it up, you are a star in your own industry, don't have to "prove it all night" in Nashville; you need to prove it everyday to your loyal customer base.
