    I have been working at Deltek full-time

    Pros

    All team members have a voice and can contribute to future plans. Working from home is offered too where feasible. The variety of skills used within my role keeps the job interesting, there is no one day-to-day task but rather a mixture of technical and personal abilities used to deliver work. There is a real feeling that you are working in a team and all are focused on delivering the very best we can.

    Cons

    Management in such a large company needs to work both with the departmental needs but also contribute to the bigger picture for the global business, so there is some admin within the role too.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain that focus on staff and our feedback and we will keep delivering great projects

    I have been working at Deltek full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    The culture, the people, the management team, the products and the customers. I've worked here for over ten years. I've seen dramatic change for the better in that time frame. Ten years ago Deltek had serious cultural issues and managed by fear. It has completely changed because of key leadership changes including the elevation of Mike Corkery and addition of Namita Dhallan. Together they created an organization...

    Cons

    We are growing fast. Its hard on the organization to acquire and integrate companies and not be disruptive. The management team is focused on growing and doing it in a way that benefits the company and its customers.

    Advice to Management

    I think the pendulum has swung a little too far towards off shore development. We absolutely need to continue to leverage offshore development but we would benefit massively from retaining more on shore development. It is a more expensive option but will pay off in other important ways.

    I have been working at Deltek full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    * great co-workers * great PTO and benefits (family planning assistance, bereavement, religious observances) * great leadership team * relaxed work environment * home/life/work balance is respected

    Cons

    * if you work remotely it can really affect your lifestyle (sedentary) * not as competitive pay as one would hope

    Advice to Management

    Promote those who deserve it, even if it's "not their turn". The best and brightest flee for those reasons.

    I worked at Deltek full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    deep subject matter expertise in PS ERP, good work life balance

    Cons

    too fragmented, growth through acquisitions without product integration across the portfolio. Still heavily set in the server client/perpetual license.

    I worked at Deltek full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Very liberal work from home policy. They come very close to discouraging working in the office.

    Cons

    Culture, compensation, management, upper management, processes, HR, transparency, all nearly 100% atrocious.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employees. The ones drinking the kool-aid won't do so forever, and your lack of valuing employees who made your acquisitions so successful will be your downfall. There is a reason why retention numbers plummeted after your horrible mismanagement of Onvia. Learn from your mistake and try to treat new employees and companies with respect. Don't just force them to conform to your awful standards.

    More resources are needed to scale the company growth

    Advice to Management

    Continue grooming the leaders coming up through the organization and giving them the chance to take on more as the company grows. Add resources where needed to scale company's growth plans.

    Some struggles with change management after the merger, but this is somewhat expected.

    I have been working at Deltek full-time

    Pros

    A recognizable name to have on a resume, especially in the software industry. Decent pay and benefits as well.

    Cons

    The company feels very boring. There is almost no interaction with employees. Everyone on my floor comes to their desks, don't talk to each other, and leave. Very few opportunities for all the departments to get together and to build the energy and the culture of the workplace.
