    Pros

    Interesting challenging work, good products.b

    Cons

    Constantly changing goals, continuous changes to compensation that are uncontrollable by you., Bonus targets are raised and based solely on billability then useless initiaitives are piled on top of you and expected to be done on top of your billable load and travel, or you are not scheduled to be billable and you very rarely would get any credit towards bonus goals. Travel system filters out many of the flights you would want to take as that is when people traveling for a weeks work want to fly -making you fly out early, return late and take connecting flight that often get you stuck or cause chaos and long long travel, which makes no sense for a billable person as it is a pass through. The need separate rules for billable travel byt road warriors. I understand a normal employee traveling for company has more flexibility and doesn't travel every week and can travel on company time and Deltek pays for their travel. Consultants travel on their own time and clients reimburse, so this is a problem. Hotels that are selected by travel system are out of policy if not the one they have a special deal and when it looks at which ones to direct you to, major metropolitan areas with big traffic may end up having a 45 minute drive to the client as it looks like only 15 miles is close, but it could be very long and takes more time out of your life.

    Lastly, the last 8 years or so after sale of the company to venture captalists yielded very short term decision making and corporate culture changes that are continuous. There is a cycle to push whatever work they can to the Phillipines office and lay off people here. Most people get laid off after their salaries start getting much above the mean average a new one could be hired for, so little long term future and stability here, you have to worry about job security constantly, especially when numbers slump.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look back to the teamwork the company exemplified in it's early days, and build on the great products this company has. Convince vulture capitalists that long term profitability should be the goal and stop plundering your employees.
