    Pros

    There's a lot of cross-departmental collaboration. Folks are quick to reach out when they believe someone else needs to be involved. Many corporate wellness activities with a focus on networking within the company. Still has some start up feel, despite being a large company.

    Cons

    Finance leadership does not always communicate. Monthly stand-ups have little to no value, as they assume everyone already knows what's going on (through osmosis?). They can sometimes get stuck in a pattern of doing things "because that's how we've done it before." Accuracy is always prioritized over speed.

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate within Finance as much, if not more, than collaboration with other departments. Include non-US operations in the collaboration and monthly meetings. Openness and communication build trust and loyalty.

    Pros

    Great company, doing great work and they really respect their employees. They also have very flexible policies about working remotely.

    Cons

    Not really many I can see. They have competitive benefits and pay right off the bat. I work with a lot of smart and highly motivated people work

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!!! I really like both of my managers and they do a great job of keeping everyone engaged and informed.

    I worked at Deltek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I went from temp to perm in a few months. Supervisor was great, job was great, in-house training.

    Cons

    Once the distribution team was downsized, out the door did my boss & I went. I felt bad for my former boss, b/c he worked there nearly 11yrs. That's what big companies do, they downsize rather than cross train us. It screwed up both of us, in reference to our resume and left a bad taste in our mouth despite 3 months severance pay. Refusal to let me sit in the very classes where they were training end users on their SW. I didn't think that was a irrational suggestion on my part, expressing interest in learning their accounting SW.

    Advice to Management

    Consider better options than downsizing. Deltek ruined its reputation b/c of indiscriminate downsizing regardless of tenure and or good performance appraisal.

    Pros

    Amazing place to work. Good place to grow. Great employees and flexibility.

    Cons

    Too many transitions. Private to IPO'd, then private again. New owners get to decide when and what they want to do with the company, going public or private. Not good as each transition comes with layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. A more constant course of business ensures growth and instills confidence in employees to give their all in a company they believe in.

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

    Pros

    Great people on the ground floor making the company work and plenty of benefits for those who excel.

    Cons

    Massive change in management led to less of a focus on employee satisfaction and more of a focus on board happiness. Company politics are terrible and advancement is based on who you know, not how well you do. Terrible communication from senior management and lots of shadiness that ultimately leads to people not getting the money they deserve. Not my department, but I once heard quotas for sales tripled and they were not notified, so everyone got way lower commission than they were promised. Pre-2016 I would rate the company 4 stars, but new management has taken over and the company is going in the wrong direction and pays below the market rate for many jobs. Also terrible work life balance. Look elsewhere if you have the choice.

    Advice to Management

    Relax a little bit and listen to your employees. Most people on the ground know how to bring in a lot of money for the company, but they don't get the time of day to do it and are instead screwed over at every turn.

    Pros

    - good PTO
    - well known product

    Cons

    - If you're female, good luck getting ahead...definite bias towards men in management and for promotions
    - On the road as a consultant 45 weeks out of the year
    - very low raise increases, even with all scores for evaluation were exceeds expectations

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to hiring and promoting qualified female candidates.
