    I worked at Deccan International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Over the past few years, Deccan International has received a bad rap on Glass Door. This review is an honest evaluation. I'm not in management and I was not asked to write this review.

    Deccan is a great place to work. They have a great suite of products, a good management team and GREAT employees. The software that they write is versatile enough that small agencies as well as large agencies can benefit. I worked for Deccan for just over one year and I can honestly say that I have enjoyed each and every day. Deccan offers flexible working hours and good.

    Management has said several times that they have an open door policy and this is the first company that I have worked for where that is 100% true. From the President & CEO down to supervisors, they are willing to talk to employees anytime. Management encourages a balance between work and life balance and encourage people to take time off (this is something that I have never seen before) to maintain a good balance.

    I can honestly say that I truly enjoyed my time at Deccan and recommend this company to anyone that is looking for an employer that will be fair, honest and have your best interest in mind.

    Cons

    I can only think of two things in the Cons section. Currently the company doesn’t offer a 401(k) and the company doesn’t cover the cost of dependents for the medical benefit. Both of these issues have been raised to management’s attention and they have advised everyone at one of the quarterly “All Hands Meeting” that they are currently looking into both issues to get the best options.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to follow through on promises made to employees. Maintain the Work / Life Balance that you have currently have. Your Vice President of Operations has done a great job and has made great strides to improve the operation of the company – don’t let him get away! Keep encouraging employees. Many say that they don’t need encouragement; however, it’s nice to hear praise. I’m proud to have worked for Deccan, proud of what they have accomplished and proud of what I have accomplished while there. You have built a great company with great software – keep up the good work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Deccan International.

    Interview

    Questionnaire, on-site skill test and a logic test, then on-site interview
    Skill test isn't hard as long as you familiarize yourself with SQL and the interface of the software they're using. The logic test can be hard under time pressure.
    In-person interview was a great experience as they are very friendly and welcoming. Mostly just going through background and job descriptions.
