Favoritism at it's finest
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Hollywood, CAJune 5, 2018
Hollywood location - poor management from top to bottom. Suggestions are brushed aside for methods that only the ancient folks that have survived there implement. Every employee is on the verge of leaving due to high stress and being severely overworked. Want to advance? Want to learn? Lots of people with Napoleon-complex. If you aren't making the big bucks like the colorists then you aren't s*** to them.

Go work for another post-production company instead where they appreciate hard work. The equivalent of slave labor.

Good luck with that place.
Some of the managers have been working at it for 15 years with 0 benefits and no salary increase from what I was told.
Pros

Cons
Stress overworked no advancement

One Deluxe Will Never Happen
Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 29, 2018
Management culture is completely disconnected from the engineering/worker culture. Upper management is mired in politics so much that our regional manager spent all their time deflecting unrealistic goals and expectations from above. Once our regional manager started pushing back, upper management STOPPED COMMUNICATING entirely for two weeks until our regional manager left.
Divisions have poor communication - edicts from on high descend and worker-bees are expected to figure things out with no support, no budget allowance, and no room to make decisions.
Pay is lower than should be - company keeps employees failure-focused so that lower pay is justified.
Environment is cutthroat with no reward.

A place to pass through
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Burbank, CAJuly 21, 2017
A good place to sharpen your skills and move on from.
Embedded middle management will delegate as much of their work to subordinates because upper management does the same thing to them creating a circle of codependency that you are made to feel obligated to maintain.
Pros
Your can learn new skills
Cons
You have to do both your job and that of your manager

Deep industry ties.
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAJuly 18, 2017
The company has longstanding relationships and industry ties. However, the leadership is distant from its employees- there is heavy oversight. The verticals are really disjointed.

Its a place to work
Programmer Analyst (Current Employee) –  Burbank, CAJuly 7, 2017
If you have a useful skill, lower management will exploit it to make themselves look good to upper management and use you to train their minion. You can use that to sharpen your skills and then move on like most smart people do here. IT personnel seem to be the most transient of all. Unfortunately the ones who you come to rely on seem to all of a sudden disappear, wonder why?
Pros
If you know how to patch things up, you will never be bored here
Cons
Putting out fires all the time will burn you out if not careful

Bad management
IT Analyst (Current Employee) –  Burbank, CAApril 18, 2017
Fast paced environment with no recognition from management for the work, quick to throw their weight around when they don't like something.

The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people since there are lots of employees at this company and many personalities.
Pros
Benefits are great
Cons
Management is terrible

All peices are needed to keep the tire turning.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Burbank, CAApril 12, 2017
Deluxe has some managers who do not even talk to the people they are leading. If the managers are taught to lead, it would be a much better place to work. Women are still not cimpensated as generously as the men, but it is getting there. Certain areas of the company are treated much better that others although they could move forward with out other employees wh0 are often for gotten.. It is like a spoke in the Wheel, all peices are needed to keep the tire turning.
Pros
Deluxe is changing the management style a bit.
Cons
Some managers need to be taught to lead.

I rather work in Alaska.
Production Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Burbank, CAOctober 12, 2015
Company has little to no regard for their employees or the ideas/suggestions of their employees There is low morale because of lack of communication of strategy and very little employee outreach from senior management and HR to mid and junior level roles coupled with the uncertainly of the film production business which the company heavily relies on.
Pros
Free donuts
Cons
Poor job security, unorganized company, poor management.
