    I have been working at Delta Defense full-time

    Pros

    You will not see a company culture like this anywhere else. Executives are friendly and personable. No matter where you work in the company, your voice will be heard. You get to know people from all parts of the company. It really does feel like a family.

    You can be yourself. You are encouraged to be creative and innovative. You are fairly compensated and are valued as a person.

    Cons

    If you don't believe in the mission, then you won't believe your work is important.

    Advice to Management

    Great job!

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

    Pros

    - Amazing company culture which really feels like a second family
    - Great 401k program
    - Management pays for extensive on-site and off-site professional training
    - Awesome gym facility
    - Catered lunches
    - Transparent leadership in which the CEO embraces an open door policy
    - Work hard play hard attitude
    - Incredibly fast growing company
    - Free books, coffee, and snacks

    Cons

    - Once a year performance review means you only get once chance every year for a compensation adjustment. If management and you don't see eye to eye you have to wait another whole year before trying to get salary adjusted. This is troublesome for people who work there and I hope management can fix it.
    - Depending on the position you work the work/life balance can often times weigh heavily on the side of work
    - As the company has grown larger office politics and red tape have become increasingly common, something which I hope management can fix.
    - Messy org chart and lack of clearly defined responsibilities at times can often lead to position confusion or burn out

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture, ditch the politics and red tape which has become an emerging trend. Fix the review process. This has been an amazing place to work which has always had an entrepreneurial spirt, don't let the spirit be dampened with politics and red tape.

    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 worked at Delta Defense full-time

    Pros

    There is room to grow/advance if you want it. Nice Christmas bonus.

    Cons

    - Assault to some of the females
    - You need to be part of the "clique" or you won't fit in
    - Management makes big money and employees don't get paid that well.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to what's really going on.... look at who you have in leadership opportunities...

    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.

    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.
