    Pros

    Compensation is at market level

    Cons

    Very little training offered to employees. Human Resources leadership is straight out of the Dilbert comic strip. I have never worked in an environment as toxic and negative as Deltek.

    Advice to Management

    Review employee trading programs for all departments.

    I have been working at Deltek (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good bonus structure, decent salary, decent work life balance

    Cons

    Healthcare plan is very bad. Besides high deductible and very high monthly, you still have to pay about 20 - 30% on the top of your copay. We ended up paying about 50% for each doctor visit out of pocket. If you count the monthly fee, you probably paid a lot more.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to do something to come up with a better benefit.

    Pros

    Awesome people.
    Working remotely.
    Flexible hours.
    Pretty good benefits.
    Good advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    3-4 off-hour meetings per week because of Philippines office.
    Everyone works more than 40 hours.
    Fairly frequent layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    I realize that layoffs are a necessary evil to ensure a well oiled working machine. However, we need to be careful that we don't cut too deep - people with industry, client and product knowledge should be retained over hiring cheap labor with no knowledge.

    Work/life balance is very important. It's fair to expect hard work, but too much will burn out employees.

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment, very flexible on telecommuting, and nice office space. The holiday/PTO accrual is also fairly generous.

    Cons

    Communication between layers of management is almost non-existent. Company regularly eliminates positions when numbers are not met. Heavy focus on sales at the expense of other sectors of the organization. Frequent acquisitions/mergers. DIfficult to move up through the organization.

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be no almost no focus on retaining talented/driven individuals or any incentives to stay with the company. People are keen to move up within the organization but there is little opportunity to do so.
