Good Place to get your feet wet
Production Manager (Former Employee), Burbank, CAMay 21, 2014
Pros: atmosphere, colleagues, type of work (movies! who doesn't love that?)
Cons: long hours without possibility for bonus or overtime payment
Fast paced environment with customer service oriented attitude. Because the expected service to the client was 24/7, it became impossible to have a life outside of work.

Immediate Supervisor was the best but Upper Management is not so great. Company is top heavy.

But I will say that I learned a ton about the Entertainment Industry and post production – more... for Home Entertainment. I learned how to think on my feet, be calm under pressure, lead a team of highly skilled editors, report to many management levels, learned billing and forecasting, as well as fostering good relationships in the process. – less

Each department is different
Billing Coordinator/ Sr. Accounting Coordinator (Former Employee), Burbank / Hollywood, CAAugust 7, 2013
Pros: working with major hollywood studios and company benefits
Cons: parking (on hollywood way) - long hours
Each department creates it's own atmosphere. Some are more conservative than others, while still maintaining a fun and entertaining place to work. This company has benefits including different healthcare providers to choose from, dental, and a 401k. It never boring. Fast pace environment where you need to learn and adapt quickly.

An enjoyable workplace
Asset Management Specialist (Former Employee), Burbank, CAJune 10, 2013
Pros: frequent company sponsored events
Cons: lack of communication within department
I was an asset retrieval specialist for film and tv digital files. I learned multiple database systems. I worked Graveyard Shift alone and required little or no supervision. The hardest part of the job was when the database systems went down, which was frequently. My coworkers were good employees but I rarely saw them because they worked the first 2 – more... shifts before mine. The most enjoyable part of the job was feeling I was part of a team, and the independence I had as the only one on the Graveyard Shift. – less

Productive and educational place to work
Ingest Operator (Current Employee), Burbank, CAFebruary 14, 2013
Pros: great co-workers, flexibility, decent benefits, relaxed atmosphere
Cons: no bonus or guaranteed annual cost of living increase, advancement difficult, employer values new hires over developing current talent.
I've had the great opportunity to meet some talented and friendly people during my time at Deluxe. Management has been fair and understanding of work/life balance for the most part. The company, however, doesn't seem to value developing talent, rather bring in temps and outside hires for new position openings. Upper management rarely interacts with – more... lower level employees and a "silo" philosophy of departments makes working with different departments a challenge.

Overall, Deluxe is a very good company that could be a great one. – less

Busy work environment
Avid Editor / VDC Tech (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 20, 2012
Pros: all equipment to work with was top of the line, made the workflow easier.
Cons: miss communication, passing off jobs that were not finished, night shifts and low paying for high quality work, clients handning in work late and changing what they wanted last minute for deliverables.
When working on deliverables I followed the same structure and workflow to provided quality for our clients. Jobs were always completed on time and help was always around from other co workers. We were all there to help each other.

Great co-workers, Demanding work environment
Sony Account Director (Current Employee), Burbank, CAJune 3, 2012
Pros: thursday bagel day, during the summer we have friday treat day, annual bonus when yearly revenues permit, other bonus programs
Cons: too many inter-office politics, accepting more work than is possible to process, lack of upper management support
Deluxe Digital Studios has a lot of great talent. I have enjoyed working with the amazing people of Deluxe. I have learned so much on the job which has been great. Deluxe does encourage learning new technology while on the job. They have many nice incentive programs but tend to work employees to the point of burn-out. This talent is generally under – more... appreciated. When all is running smooth, management is fine, but when potential issues are flagged, they are ignored until the client complains. Once the client complains it becomes a finger pointing session which does not create a positive work environment. – less

Freelancers Beware: It's like pulling teeth to get your paycheck from them!
Freelance Editor (Former Employee), Burbank, CaJune 9, 2011
Pros: awesome project managers, fun projects to edit, comfy edit suites, flexible hours
Cons: horribe payroll system for freelancers, expect to get paid every 3 months
Deluxe Digital Studios overall is a good place to work. The team there is awesome and the project managers are great. As a freelance Editor you have somewhat flexible hours and the pay is not bad. The only problem....(which unfortunately is a really bad one that out weighs all the good), is that the corporate payroll department is in Canada which unfortunately – more... has trouble paying out invoices in a timely matter. Invoices I turned in for work that I have competed took almost 3+ months to be paid. I had to call their offices nearly on a daily bases to track my checks which would never come when promised It nearly wrecked me financially. They definitely have the work if you want it, but their payroll system is horrible. – less
