    I have been working at Deltak full-time

    Pros

    - Young, energetic, intelligent and professional employees. - Flexible schedules. - up to 24 PTO (plus holidays) off - strong salary and excellent insurance - unique growth options (admissions/sales into operations, HR, marketing, business/corp development, client outreach, media services, ID) - good middle management and excellent executive leadership

    Cons

    - Culture slowly from one of employee growth to fiscal growth focus, making it harder to buy into the job. It has caused recent turnover on the admissions and marketing teams. - The company has not been able to appropriately scale growth. Some of the goals across various departments have become nearly unachievable. - interview process is 4-7 interviews that can take 6 weeks to 4 months.

    Advice to Management

    Be wary of the recent culture changes that have been made. We realize we are a for-profit company and Wiley needs to keep its stock price in the green, but you should never sacrifice company culture and employee morale to make a quarterly report briefly look better. Don't trade your long term company and employee development to exceed an immediate revenue goal. Doing so will result in further turnover.

    - Not so much a con, but the organization is navigating transitions within Wiley and scaling operations within the division - this is just change, not a con

    Advice to Management

    - You have made progress in communicating what is going on, how we are evolving and where we are going - KEEP IT UP
