    Pros

    - Learned a lot and worked with great people who were smart. helpful, and kind - Experience was very valuable: has helped me elevate my career to the next level. - My boss was truly my mentor and CIO was very helpful/approachable

    Cons

    - Senior Management with exception of the CIO were extremely political and disconnected with employees. A great deal of stress was caused by all the finger pointing and games. Atmosphere was very tense as a result - company is not doing well financially and not much chance of promotions/salary increases

    I have been working at Deluxe Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits system in place is very good, and the work being done really is great work. The atmosphere is great, the vast majority of the people there really love their jobs and want to be there, which makes the environment a good one to work in.

    Cons

    Not all departments are good. Communication within teams or divisions can be abysmal. No job feedback or review after 6 months or a year, but hopefully that's just department dependent. Some departments are just flat out toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Give clearer paths to advancement, rather than stonewalling and showing nothing but dead end positions.

    I have been working at Deluxe Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    - Job Security (unless they have another major layoff like 2009) - Decent Benefits (Health Insurance/401k program)

    Cons

    - Very little upward mobility - Not much room for growth in domestic business units - Slow to adapt to new technology workflows due to size of the company and large amounts of red tape

    Advice to Management

    Pretty much all of the upper management just got replaced, so to the new ones I'd say good luck turning the ship around. Scary place to be right now.
