    I worked at Deltak full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to work with a proven method to help students get the education they need for successful careers. Management is supportive with a clear vision.

    Cons

    Goals are high, so hard work pays off. The downside is when targets are missed - expect to see some "adjustments" that weed out poor performers. The culture is not for independent thinkers.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your mission statement. Reward entrepreneurial spirit again and embrace new ideas.

    I have been working at Deltak full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Amazing, talented people work here - 20+ PTO days per year based on tenure - Paid well for a sales job not based on commission

    Cons

    The company has lost its identity during the acquisition. When I was hired in 2012 it was an amazing environment. The pay was average for the type of work being done but since then Deltak (now Wiley Education Service) has become a call center. With the implementation of a new Quality Day Score, there is a focus on dials and padding your day to meet unrealistic expectations as opposed to having a "quality" day as the...

    Advice to Management

    You have amazing employee base. People that have lived Deltak's core values for 5+ years dread going to work now. You're focusing on all the wrong aspects of the work we do and ruining the company culture.

    Pros

    Great employees who seem to love the job and growth available. Lots of room to advance. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Time off policies not as great as they once were. Employees come to work very sick to avoid using there PTO days.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with great training to build strong employees.

    I have been working at Deltak full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good culture and work environment, especially for working families. I feel I am paid slightly above average and enjoy what I do.

    Cons

    Majority of middle management is coming in from the outside. Sold to Wiley 18 months ago and rapid growth is expected, now that certain policies and procedures are in place they are losing the culture they once regarded so highly. There are a few 'cancers' within the organization in Sr level management that continue to grow with no accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within and actually post job openings internally. Have a more unified and consistent training program for your rapidly growing sales staff.

    I have been working at Deltak full-time

    Pros

    The culture is upbeat and there are a lot of younger (25-35) people working in the company to keep the energy going. Benefits are good and PTO is good, even for new hires. The problem is finding time to take the PTO. It's a great company to work for if you're looking for non-commissioned sales.

    Cons

    Management is hit or miss. Since the company is growing so rapidly, there's a crunch to hire and quality people are not always hired. If you're put under management that is willing to go to bat for you then you'll get promoted. If you are stuck with a newbie then you may be out of luck. Also, if you don't network and get to know upper management then you'll have a tough time getting promoted also (they need to know your...

    I have been working at Deltak full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get a chance to work with people who are not just intelligent and capable, but friendly, positive, and caring. Superb culture and collaborative environment. Flexible work conditions which allow individuals to produce their best work.

    Cons

    The company is rapidly growing, so it is hard to find time and space to share ideas across the company. The onboarding could be improved. Teams can get silo-ed.

    Advice to Management

    Make more time and space for cross-department and cross-team collaboration. Make sure that there are enough resources to accommodate the growth. Assign another employee (not just the manager) to help during the onboarding process.
