    I have been working at Delta Defense full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was hired several years after I completed my Bachelor's degree (Was working in an unrelated field). Started in an entry level position in Member Services - Within five months I was in marketing and three years into my employment I'm in a Project Management position.

    Upper management is focused on helping me expand my abilities as a marketer. They've sent me (and many others) to multiple marketing conferences, purchased any learning material I've requested, and continually encourage me to continue to expand your role in the company.

    They involve everyone in the company in the decisions that affect our entire organization. Everyone's opinion is valid.

    Cons

    The company is incredibly fast moving. If you don't embrace change, you're not going to be comfortable.

    Advice to Management

    There's no better feeling than seeing someone promoted from within. It gives me continued desire to keep pushing to improve the areas of the company I have control over and to continue pushing to advance in my career.

    I have been working at Delta Defense full-time

    Pros

    The culture is exactly what you're reading that it is. Fast, fun, exciting, rewarding, encouraging, and positive.
    Everyone here feels like they won the "job lottery".

    Cons

    If you're not dedicated to learning, improving, and developing, you won't make it.

    I have been working at Delta Defense full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fierce defenders of culture. Fast-paced, challenging environment. Genuine family-feel. Open and honest communication. Very careful about who we hire. Negativity is forbidden. Live and breathe our Core Values. Exciting projects and vast career opportunities. Weekly coaching sessions with managers. Work really hard, play really hard. Everyone actually cares, about what we do and about each other, which is rare.

    Cons

    Not somewhere you just punch a clock and collect a paycheck. Definitely not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example and continue to inspire.

    Pros

    The opportunity to learn and grow at Delta Defense is insane. Books, workshops, and conferences are highly encouraged and you're constantly challenged to think outside the box. I work on the marketing team, have worked here for less than 2 years and have learned more here than I did all 4 years of college.

    Also, when we say we are a family, we mean it. Sure we bump heads at times but it's because we're all so passionate about what we do. We hang out outside of work, know each other's kids & dogs' names, and genuinely like being around each other. It's definitely a rare bond.

    Cons

    If you're looking for a job you can just clock in and out of every day without working hard to move the needle, this isn't the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Constantly strive to improve your communication skills and help your employees grow.

    I worked at Delta Defense full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gives giant Christmas bonuses and has catered lunch every Thursday. Ceo is very generous and gives people lots of extras.

    Cons

    It's very cliquey and if you aren't part of the group it makes it difficult. Supervisors do a lot of do as I say not as I do, with lots of meetings that are actual personal chat sessions and lots of facebooking. Ceo is nice but has on rose colored glasses.

    Advice to Management

    Look more closely at your supervisors, there's a lot you don't see.

    Pros

    Strong leadership in this fast growing company. Great family environment. Great team members. Company has a positive message. If you get the opportunity to join this team, jump on it!

    Cons

    Lots of growing pains but this only leads to more opportunities. With any small company some roles are not clearly defined and the communication process can always be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to improve on the communication process and look for new ways to interact with employees. Keep focused and continue to support and invest in your people.

    Pros

    There are always ways to move up in the company. You can start at the bottom and become a manager of a certain area in just months. They are amazing to their employees and have a real family environment.

    Cons

    Things are always changing because we are such a small company so you have to be ready for that!

    Advice to Management

    You are doing great. I have the best CEO anyone could ask for.
