    I have been working at Delaware Investments full-time

    Pros

    Great benefit package especially vacation days and maternity leave (16 weeks).

    Cons

    Pay not so great. No transparent from upper management and parent company keeps changing their plans and waste employees time. Some people from other departments can act unprofessional or rude. HR department is useless and not helpful. Promotion opportunities and standards are very unconsistent from Dept to Dept and from location to location.

    I worked at Delaware Investments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart co-workers who genuinely have a passion for what they do
    Interesting work if you're interested in investing/markets
    Work/Life balance is taken seriously - plenty of PTO is thanks to an Australian parent company
    Fair compensation

    Cons

    Minimal interaction between departments
    Politics at the senior level was frustrating
    Felt like management functioned re-actively instead of pro-actively

    Advice to Management

    Develop a strategic framework, communicate it, and then take actions consistent with the strategy.

    I worked at Delaware Investments full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really nice people who embraced me from the start and had patience with my inexperience. From the start, I was comfortable that I could speak my mind and be heard.

    Cons

    I enjoyed working with the marketing team, but it was clear that they were at the whim of the rest of the company. You could feel that morale was low because of this treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Intra-department communication was very lackluster and caused a lot of isolation of employees, which results in less-than-best effort.
