    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPut your best foot forward and the doors will open. Even if they they can't right now, plenty of opportunity to receive kudos and coaching on how to excel in your profession. Opportunities to shift to new roles and advance are available as well.

    ConsFast-paced. They weren't kidding. Sometimes you look for a lull in the race, but we cover a lot of ground and there is satisfaction in what we get done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhile you promote and advance the top workers, keep in mind those that are solid contributors.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work if you're motivated

    Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) Lancaster, CA

    ProsI like this company, they reward high performance with nice monthly bonuses, so if you're motivated then it's a great place to work. There are several of my co-workers who are lazy and they sit around complaining that the bonuses are too hard to get, even though there's a ton of us who get them every month. I wish these lazy people would be fired cuz they bring the rest of us down. My boss is awesome and his boss is also really cool, but once you go above that level I get the impression that they don't listen to us anymore.

    ConsThey're afraid to fire people because they don't want to have bad attrition numbers, but I don't see how having a high attrition rate hurts you more than having lazy employees stick around way longer than they should.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire fire fire! Get rid of these people that are negative. They bring us good employees down and demotivate us.

    Nice people & decent pay

    Lead Graphic Designer (Former Employee) Shoreview, MN

    ProsNice working environment - Co-workers and direct managers in marketing were really good. Pay was good. Good equipment & software - they made sure stuff was ergonomic. Decent cafeteria - with ok food to buy.... short on microwaves for your own food. Next to park with lake - nice for lunch time walks.

    ConsHigher management too slow to change with the times. Huge lay-offs without assessing individual employee experience & knowledge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBefore doing lay-offs - should really assess individual employee experience & knowledge. Social media marketing was late and is still weak.

    Moving in the right direction

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe Deluxe culture has turned more positive in the last year and is now a pretty good place to work - if you are in the right division. The managers are approachable, extremely good at their jobs and easy to work for! Work life balance has also dramatically improved in the last year.

    ConsThere is high turnover. When I noticed that long term employees were being let go, I knew that I needed to move on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe work atmosphere is depressing in some buildings, a major overhaul is needed so that people want to be on location.

    Good company with many dedicated employees

    Anonymous (Current Employee) Shoreview, MN

    ConsVery siloed environment among business units

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop talking about integration and just get it done.

    A large company with the typical pros and cons that come with it. Generally positive trajectory.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat place to work, very professional. Things change, which is good. Successes are highlighted and rewarded. Great compensation packages and generous PTO. Decent on campus cafeterias.

    ConsLots of acquisitions and disparate verticals make cross department collaboration harder. Regulatory / security issues reduce IT efficiency. I found it difficult to find mentors mainly because folks were too busy.

    A Company in transition but the strategy is working.

    Territory Manager - Small Business (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsThe Deluxe value proposition resonates with the Fortune 500. They have a solid reputation and a long term strategy of transformation is on the right track. The future looks good.

    ConsAfter numerous acquisitions Deluxe struggles with integration and fulfilling the promise of it's value proposition. IT resources are slim and allocated quickly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRefine the Deluxe go-to-market strategy based on a realistic assessment on what Deluxe can deliver to the end customer. Invest more in IT resources. The margin requirements for the print industry are too high and make Deluxe non-competitive.

    Easygoing atmosphere, but it was difficult to counteract the challenges of a declining check industry.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Shoreview, MN

    ProsGood work environment, office environment provided few distractions, management seemed encouraging, bureaucracy seemed minimal

    ConsNot as much interaction with other employees or departments. It seemed hard to focus on how to move the company forward.
