    Pros

    Great Cafeteria. Nice laptop computers.

    Cons

    95% of all projects are outsourced to offshore companies in India. You will be required to wrestle control of your project back to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-organize your management and restructure.

    Pros

    Retirement Savings program through Profit Sharing, 401K, etc. allowed me to save at a high level for retirement. Managers did not micro-manage. Internal support organization provided excellent service to financial institutions.

    Cons

    Pace of bringing new marketing services solutions to market is slow. Compensation model is below other relevant companies providing services to financial institutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve employee recognition programs.

    Pros

    Terrific co-workers an solid management. Pretty good work life balance and supportive culture.

    Cons

    Struggling to transform to a more diverse product and services suite and as a result the business segment I was working for is constantly downsizing.

    Pros

    The insurance and benefit package is good, and they do move people up through the ranks.

    Cons

    Starting pay is low for a major corporation, they do show favoritism. While most jobs are posted a lot of them are not. People don't have equal access to bid on jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the Golden rule !!

    Pros

    On the whole, most employees are extremely dedicated, intelligent and always willing to help others. They always rally to get things accomplished and working with them is the best part of working there..

    Cons

    Upper management is very results driven without regard to their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please remember that the employees are your greatest assets and resources. If treated as such, they wll gladly go far beyond your expectations.

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent salary and incentives...for non-sales people.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management and a nightmarish, confusing web of overly complex, unnecessary processes have created a haven for mediocrity. If you are above average, and/or the type to question the many things you will encounter that don't make any sense you will not be successful here. They talk about change and innovation, but in practice they want anything but. Constant, large layoffs create low morale. They lay off experienced employees then turn around and replace the exact same position with lower-cost less experienced people, which only adds to the chaos and confusion. There is no focus on customer satisfaction or even doing the right thing for customers. It's only about the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    That would be a complete waste of time.

    Pros

    Deluxe is a large company; therefore the benefits are great.

    Cons

    Since Deluxe is a large company, you are number & treated as one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your employees - know their strengths and weaknesses.
