I have been working at Deltek full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Decent Salary
Work Life Balance
Work From Home
Good People

Cons

CYA Management Style- Senior Managment due to constant layoffs, poor decisons, and fear tactics has instilled a CYA work ethic. Many people especially middle management are un accountable and point the finger "to someone else" when things dont go the way C-Level expect. People are in constant fear of lay offs and this doesnt promote a great working environment. Have lost a lot of good people due to Senior Mangement's inability to identify own inadequecies.

Lack of Strategy- Deltek technology is outdated and behind the times. Product management road map is non existent and customers are starting to recognize that Detlek takes FOREVER to deliver a product to the market. And when it does,many customers are indifferent. Development team has shown signs of improvement at times, but cant seem to maintain,momentum and falls behind very easily

Just a software vendor-- No thought leadership. Customers are looking for trusted advisor and someone who can help tem achieve goals and expectations, Deltek falls short. Instead of driving market, constantly trying to catch up. Reactive culture versus being proactive.

Just acquired by Private Equity firm. Early diagnosis is uncertain.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to the competition and current market conditions.
Get house in order. Product management and technology needs to be dramtically improved
Start operating like a software company
Think long term and not just what this curent quarter will deliver
Work on fixing poor integration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivation is low because people are not paid what they should. Raise salaries and keep your top employees instead of being cheap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give back some of the $90k bonus money to the employees. Employees clear every qtr approx. 5-600 dollars in bonus $ and it is gone by 40% due to taxes and there are upper mgmt that deposit checks for themselves of a minimum of $80k for a bonus. The employees do well and cannot not even get taken to a simple cheap lunch!
