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

    Pros

    Most of the people were amazing to work with, from all over the world. Interesting work. Local office tried to care.

    Cons

    Management were severely disconnected from the day to day. Copious amounts of overtime needed. Promotions were rare and took a long time for approval.

    Advice to Management

    Stop and listen to your employees. They have a wealth of knowledge that you are ignoring in chasing the bottom dollar, and losing them and the expertise they have, leaving you with more of a mess that is now impossible to fix.

    Really fun work with some great people from around the world.

    Upper-management is too removed and unfamiliar with the day-to-day, leading to poor decision-making.

    I have been working at Deluxe Entertainment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with. The downtown location with direct access to the metro is super convenient. Very interesting and exciting industry.

    Cons

    Salaries are low compare to competitors and many employees have to do overtime so work life balance is somewhat of an issue

    Advice to Management

    Allow work from home when possible with vpn access. Allow flexibility in schedule and more benefits are needed in order to compensate for the lower salaries.

    Pros

    Best colleagues ever! The atmosphere between colleagues was always really great. Interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't great and there was very little opportunity for promotion unless working in the head office. Decisions from upper management were not communicated well. The adoption of new systems was done without consulting the people on the ground who would actually be using these systems.

      I worked at Deluxe Entertainment (Less than a year)

      Pros

      You get to see some celebrities.

      Cons

      Everybody drags their feet around all day because they are so unhappy with their jobs and extremely poorly treated. Upper management is clueless and overlook all of the real issues to boost their incomes and use their company credit cards for personal trips and expenses while their staff make less than 30K a year.

      Advice to Management

      Good people used to work here

      I worked at Deluxe Entertainment for more than a year

      Pros

      Good company to work. Flexible work hours and good benefits plan. Will recommend for easy life if that's what you are looking for.

      Cons

      Growth is slow and have faced a bit of office politics. Salaries are in mid range.

      Advice to Management

      Keep working hard, try to avoid politics. Take care and thanks for employments. Good luck.
