    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Delex Systems full-time (More than 5 years)


    A lot of nice people, close-knit group. Not a faceless entity, through the times where business was slow, they did what they could to keep everyone on, whether it was putting people to work on things that they were way out of their element on, or just using up PTO. There was really only one time I worked there when we had to work brutal hours, and that was for maybe a 4-6 month period, but aside from that, it was 8 hours and out. Generally good autonomy.


    Salary was definitely on the low side. What goes along with that "close-knit" stuff above is the fact that people are typically hired from within, which means people are often elevated beyond their abilities. Former developers became managers. When the job cuts had to come, the managers would have to become developers again, and their skills were definitely not up-to-date, although I'm not sure they were ever quite competent in the first place. And, no doubt, they were cheap, which may be the over-riding factor. If you're a programmer and you have interest in being a real 'software engineer'/architect, this is not the place to be. There's really no passion for that sort of thing. Your skills will not develop under mentorship. You're on your own with that one. Also, the challenge level was generally low.

    Advice to Management

    Fresh blood is definitely needed. Really talented people won't stay for too long.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Delex Systems (Erie, PA) in December 2013.


    They accepted resumes through the university, scheduled through the career development office. Instead of interviewing candidates they were interested in, they chose to interview everyone who applied for the "experience." There was a presentation, then interviews were scheduled over the following two days with an analyst and an HR person in the room.
