    I worked at Deluxe Entertainment full-time (more than 3 years)


    There is a lot of work to be done and it is busy almost all the time. Stable reputation among studios as a company that can deliver however improbable the requirements. Depending on the team you work with you might get to work with some really good people. Benefits started off being very good/excellent to just about enough to finally paltry. Everything done is aimed at achieving the Bonus. Offices and desks are very good. Latest hardware is provided to most teams.


    Depending on the team you work with you might get to work with a lot of unprofessional folks. While it is true there are unprofessional people in all companies, there seems to be a high concentration here. (Maybe indicative of company culture?) HR is brutal and ruthless. Seeing the process used for layoffs I'm thankful to not have gone through one. Though not technically illegal they pull a lot of unethical stuff on current and former employees that would fall in the gray area. Teams are motivated with fear. (Of missing deadlines, missing bonuses etc) Not a good style of leadership to thrive under. Ability to innovate existed in pockets a few years ago but has completely gone out the window. There is a lack of clear communication from upper management and middle management and down below to frontline workers. Nepotism is clearly visible in multiple areas. If you are aligned under the correct political powers that be, then you are good otherwise good luck. Most times managers are more concerned with deadlines than the art of managing people and providing a harassment/politics free work environment. Good luck having a work life balance. You are just a number that will do whatever it takes to get the project completed. Its all about what the studios want and on their terms. So that soccer practice of your son, dinner with your wife. Forget all that. Folks who get legal immigration benefits from the company are held ransom by covert statements made by managers. The overall impression given being "You should be happy to have a job"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better. While extra cash in the form of bonus is nice, a good work culture and a non-passive aggressive work environment will help your employees contribute more to the company. Identify inefficiencies in middle management and empower the actual frontline workers. Make HR work more for the employees than toeing the company line.
