    I worked at Deluxe Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work. Working in the entertainment industry is fun and interesting. I very much liked the people I managed and many of the people I worked with in other departments and co-leaders.

    Cons

    Senior management have no emotional intelligence. They are truly some of the worst leaders for whom I have ever worked. Everything is an emergency! No attempts are made to work with the client, therefore there is a lot of O.T. and stress.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your people with some amount of caring. They really AREN'T there to cater to your every whim.

    I worked at Deluxe Entertainment (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people to work with and talk to in some departments. Friday treats during busy season.

    Cons

    Not a place for growth. Very little staff, and what's left are probably very busy and.needing help but can't because there's hardly anyone there. No raise in some time, pretty much your lucky if you're still there. Management seems to think the staff doesn't have a life outside of work. And lacking overtime to when it's really needed have to beg sometimes to just get a little bit to help with your giant work load.

    Advice to Management

    Give the staff a raise! Laying off good people and then offering them to come back as a temp making less than what they made when they were let go isn't great for moral.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay rate, lots of good people, good technology, nice facilities.

    Cons

    Lack of department strategy, heavy workload, not enough staff to get everything done without very long days and constant weekend work.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy, commit to it, provide staff and resources to execute strategy.

    I have been working at Deluxe Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady pay, 401(k) plan, floating holidays and overall friendly workplace. When there's not many projects coming down the pipeline, you're allowed to work on your own code. Coworkers are very understanding if life situations prompt you to come to work late.

    Cons

    The work is rather templated. It makes you feel like as if you're part of an assembly line rather than a software development team. There have been waves of layoffs as work's been shipped over to Bangalore, so the threat of being fired is always hanging over your head.

    Advice to Management

    You have plenty of good programmers, but you're leaving them all to rot on projects that will be obsolete in 2 or so years when peoples' choice of entertainment medium disappears. Provide them with challenges rather than saturating them with template work.

    Pros

    Good commute to Burbank, CA.

    Cons

    Leadership is reactive instead of proactive. Very in-secured. Ego and brown-nosing trumps results, so the best employees are overlooked, grossly under compensated and ultimately, are forced out due to the "leadership's" insecurity.

    Advice to Management

    You claim you're a leader in the film industry, maybe you should reflect and promote the very same progressive culture our industry claims to care so much about, instead of importing and imposing the "sweat-shop" mentality from your Bangalore facility, which is constantly protesting your unfair treatment of workers.

    Pros

    The people are great, it's a fun and interactive environment on most days. We get Friday Treat Days every Friday at 3pm.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth, there haven't been raises in a few years due to the economy. There are a lot of layoffs often, everyone has a bad attitude towards the company. They always hire from the outside for growth positions. There is more work than one person can handle yet that person has a lot of work piled on.

    Advice to Management

    Praising your employees should be a great priority. The morale is very low. Raises or awards of acknowledgment would be great more often. Hire positions that people leave open and stop giving the already swamped employees so much work.

    Pros

    the commute wasn't that bad

    Cons

    Lots of insecurity among the ranks, no vision, lots of ego.

    Advice to Management

    I think the management knows what they are doing and are interested in profits, not people.
