    Pros

    The best part about working at deluxe is bagel thursdays and friday treats. I also like the values the company has as a whole.

    Cons

    mondays, tuesdays, and wednesdays. Also I do not really like how difficult it to solve issues as things have to go through an assemble line of people just to get done.

    Pros

    Deluxe was founded by a visionary man who worked hard to make this company what it is today - the largest post production distributor. Great managers who promote team work.

    Cons

    The film work tracking software is old and lacks modern technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade software technology.

    Great networking and hands on experience

    I worked at Deluxe Entertainment

    Pros

    Work with a great bunch of people in various departments.
    Learn new things about today's technology.
    When learning new tasks your fellow team members are always willing to help you with every step of the way.

    Cons

    Difficult to network at times in a super fast paced environment but do-able.
    The company mostly hires from the outside for higher level positions rather than train hardworking and capable workers from inside the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your team members more. When one promotes the team should move up in the ranks as well or given the option to transfer to another department when enough time has been put in their present position. Too much time in one position (especially if they want a challenge) can increase the likelihood of low productivity.

    Great people to work with, but business is shaky

    I worked at Deluxe Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    A great work environment, plus awesome people who work there. They work hard, but play hard.

    Cons

    They promised an annual bonus when hired, but then when the time came, they cancelled it because of "the economy"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't say the bonus is guaranteed in the interview process if it truly is not

    Pros

    This company does generally try to keep their employees happy. Performance bonuses are a nice sweetner.

    Cons

    Don't see much opportunity for advancement unless you are a workaholic. They also tend to hire coordinators and temps alot instead of having fully skilled and invested workers.

    You have to make your work/ife balance on your own. Otherwise they will work you into the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because a person works 12-14 hours a day doesn't mean they are management material!

    I have been working at Deluxe Entertainment full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good local management that care about staff and try to make their working life rewarding and worthwhile. Good development of staff skills and they value all kinds of input.

    Cons

    HQ management is very top heavy and can at times be too distant. They seem not to know (or care about?) what is going on in the different offices around the world. Little awareness of differences in office culture between the US and worldwide offices creates a divide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your staff. Open up a dialogue - staff would appreciate more active information and communication with the top. Invest in your human resources and you will receive amazing dividends.
