      Pros

      Great culture, people, benefits, good employee rewards program. Leaders encourage people to learn new things and work on different challenging projects. Free lunch and fruits bi-weekly. Free pop and coffee. Monthly office events make it a fun and relax work environment. Leaders are very transparent in almost everything about the company. CEO has great vision for the future of the company.

      Cons

      Lots of meetings which sometimes interfere with real work done.

      100 year old check company lacking direction.

      Pros

      - Benefits and insurance are very good - Pay is consistent with industry standards - New CEO (Barry) is implementing changes to knock down internal silo’s - New CEO comes from a financial tech background which should provide a fresh and modern take on the companies go forward strategy. - There are employees within the company that truly care about the customers - Employees are passionate

      Cons

      - The work environment in the world headquarters office in Shoreview is exactly what you would think a 100 year old check company would be like - stale non-modern facilities with outdated workspaces and technology. - In my experience new hires usually leave within a year. Overall morale in marketing department is extremely low. - Employees are in a constant state of panic to meet unrealistic targets. - Deluxe is 100% focused on driving revenue by any means necessary. Common sense, customers, employee satisfaction all take a back seat to the revenue focus. - Mergers and acquisitions is at the core of the Deluxe’s growth strategy but integrating them is not. This leads to silo’s and confusion within the company.

      Terrible Company

      Pros

      Nice people to work with and depending on your job, can be a flexible work environment.

      Cons

      Benefits very average, terrible PTO, holiday schedule and 401k match compared to many companies (Deluxe does the bare minimum which shows how they treat employees), toxic work environment, management/leadership manages up not down, and people are very disposable. I knew with a few weeks I had made a career mistake. It is a revolving door of layoffs and people stab each other in the back to keep their job. Employees are "yes" people in fear of speaking up and that they will be next. The layoffs are constant and it's an unsettling environment. I saw it throughout the company, not just certain areas. And for people that had been there a long time, they coached me to keep my head down because of the layoffs and don't rock the boat. It's not a culture of being open and honest and sharing ideas. And the fact that the CEO prior to the one now called it "Fall Festival" which was the big layoffs in the fall was a huge sign on the culture. There are many companies in the Minneapolis area, this is one I wouldn't waste my time applying at. And even though there is a new CEO, he came in and wiped out hundreds and hundreds of employees and kept it under the radar by spreading it out over 5 months and doing small increments at a time. The list goes on and on.

      Overall, not a bad place

      Pros

      I worked as a software engineer full time for over 5 years. There is an open atmosphere work environment, and you will have access to all levels of management. And the area is mostly a nice place to live. Your commute to work won't likely be too far.

      Cons

      If you're in development, the work expectation can often far exceed the compensation, and there is real no work-home balance.

      Horrible place to be

      Pros

      Some of the teams are great to partner with and the pay is good for upper leadership (no surprise there)

      Cons

      Most of the leadership is quite bad. The work environment is horrible. They just put in new "cost effective" lighting that is giving many employees headaches. They continue to do cost cutting, on things from getting additional training to reducing the bonus structure, all while asking the employees to do more. 40 people have quit from my area in the past 1.5 years. Also, there is no career growth here from most management. They're using project methodologies and technology from the 90's, and they're wondering why things aren't working.

      Disengaged Management, poor training, outdated model

      Pros

      Pay was good. Hours were reasonable.

      Cons

      I felt like I walked into an empty shell of what was once a great company. Management were great individual contributors but not leaders/developers. Little to no training. Heads-down work environment. Unless you are a quick learner who doesn't need any training at all, you will find it a difficult. Also, little to no socialization or interaction with co-workers.

      Pros

      New energetic CEO, Good work-life Balance at the first few months, Good work culture in the Atlanta office

      Cons

      Poor teamwork between groups within the company. Poor midlevel management due to lack of experience. A high rate of employee turnover. Lack of innovation and discouragement of change. Lack of honesty and transparency. Lack of job security which creates a toxic and unenjoyable work environment. A repeated pattern of quickly hiring new employees then quickly terminating their employment.
