Deltek Summary
Research Analyst (Former Employee), Herndon, VAFebruary 25, 2015
Nice place to work if you don't mind having little to no job security. Deltek is not an employer that looks out for its employees. It's about Deltek first, and you second. if you're comfortable with that then go ahead and sign up.

Great work-life balance but bad ownership
Consultant (Current Employee), Herndon, VAJanuary 21, 2015
Pros: open space, break rooms, gym
Cons: frequent turnover of execs/ownership
The company went public then private and it it all came downhill. But for a company in this area, the culture is very good and it takes good care of its people.

Deltek
Research Analyst (Current Employee), Washington, DCDecember 3, 2014
Pros: great people top to bottom
Cons: upper management disengaged at times with employees
A lot of the culture at Deltek is really good. They do have a great home life balance. The people who work there are mostly great people that will go out of their way to help you. As a worker, we had the ability to help define our job as long as it was to the greater good or the organization. My co-workers are some of the best people I ever had the privilege to work with. The only negative I would really say is that while upper management gives the impression that they care about everyone, if as an employee you are not in the growth or revenue portion of the company then you needs are mostly ignored. As a company that is growing with plans for the future, at times it needs to look back over its own history to see what it did well and not so well before engaging in more acquisitions. Layoffs have been common at my time at Deltek. Rarely will you see upper management take the blame for another departments under performance.

It was time to go
Manager of Product Environments (Former Employee), Herndon, VASeptember 23, 2013
Pros: flexible work schedule
Cons: management that is ran like a preschool, whomever whines the loudest that is the company direction.
Deltek was a very challenging, fast paced organization that suffered from quarterly RIFs to keep their financials in balance. The combination of the fast pace and the uncertainty of having a job quarter to quarter led to a lot of stress and in the end I was burnt out. My immediate manager was fantastic and ensured to the best of his abilities that my team and I had a good work and life balance. One of Deltek's downfalls is that they have too many VPs on the staff and they all want 85 different things done in 15 different ways but they all need it yesterday because none of them can PLAN. My job was stressful because I constantly had to change directions and shift to the latest VP request or which VP had cried the loudest the C Level managers. The most enjoyable part of my job was my co-workers, I miss all of them and the challenges that we overcame time and time again, but I am so relieved to not have the Deltek stress load on me anymore.

At Deltek, my communications and organizational skills were enhanced. I was the chief editor for our internal weekly and quarterly newsletters. I developed marketing and communications content to spread awareness and to get employees involved in Deltek events and learning opportunities.

the only thing is that they do layoffs very often and it seems most of the operations are slowly transitioning to the Phillipines.

Great place to work with great wellness programs that help to support a work life balance
Senior Research Analyst (Former Employee), Herndon, VANovember 29, 2012
Pros: great wellness programs
Cons: poor growth and development and career advancement
I loved working at Deltek for the most part, but found that there was little room for advancement. I enjoyed working with others at Deltek. There is a young workforce with lots of passion for what they do. The wellness programs available are wonderful. Deltek hosted a battle of the bands and provides free seated massages, car detailing, athletic activities such as a run/walk group and a biking group among others. Deltek also gives employees the opportunity to put win tickets to events in the Deltek box at the Verizon center as well as other places. Deltek lacks a really strong professional development program but is beginning to make progress in that area. One really awesome part of working there were the quarterly bonuses.

Director, Compensation (Current Employee), Herndon, VAOctober 26, 2012
Pros: great growth opportunities and wellness programs
I was brought on to Deltek over 5 years ago to develop and implement a sustainable structure for Compensation to include equity and incentive planning.

During my 5 years with the company I have promoted 3 times and developed the skills to become a leader within the organization.

I truly enjoy working with the business leaders at Deltek and see them grow and prosper through HR & Compensation.

Poor leadership
Marketing Communications (Current Employee), Herndon, VASeptember 25, 2012
The company culture is changing in a positive directly, but the current leadership teams do not encourage innovation or new ideas. They are set in their ways, and frown upon challenging old and out of date ideas.

Sad place only interested in padding the pockets of executives
Individual Contributor (Former Employee), Herndon, VAAugust 1, 2012
Pros: good salary and benefits
Cons: everything else possible
This used to be a wonderful 'family feeling' organization. Once purchased by VC, it became a money maker only for the chosen few, brought in from outside. Very elitist environment, cruel treatment of those who were not part of the inner circle. Most of the great talent that made the company what it is have left or been elimintated.
