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

    Pros

    There are some great people working with the company. This is also a good starting point for professionals wishing to gain a foot in the door for Cinema and Streaming industries. While this is a technology company, it is also heavily involved in entertainment.

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be staffing issues, which has a flow-on effect for working team members who have to make up for the slack.

    I worked at Deluxe Entertainment for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, some great technology platforms and a great range of projects to work on.

    Cons

    Incredibly poor leadership (especially in the Australian business), a series of silos fighting between one another for investment and attention. Staff are definitely treated as second class citizens with only token attempts made at engagement.

    I have been working at Deluxe Entertainment

    Pros

    My team is nice . I have nothing else more to put here.

    Cons

    Base salary is lower than McDonald's managers. After tax you only get 16 dollars an hour. I made more 4 years ago when I was in retail.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The company has a great international presence. North America being the hub, Europe and APAC trailing fairly significantly. The company as a group has a great subset of products and brands with industry experts all around the world who love the media industry and are committed.

    Cons

    Management are too focused on big picture and don't get involved at an operational level as much as they should. Lots of high salaries who aren't worth the investment. Salaries aren't reviewed nearly enough and are sub-par, globally. Contracts aren't honoured, especially around bonuses. Hypocrisy is rife. Rarely an opportunity to move elsewhere in the group unless you're in VFX.

    I have been working at Deluxe Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Good for the ones who love to work in the field of Entertainment.

    Cons

    Don't see any growth and team members are just worried about the work and nothing else. People don't even communicate well apart from finding out issues in you.

    I worked at Deluxe Entertainment full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot and earn as well. Get more insight into how post-production works and about most of the major film producing companies.

    Cons

    Politics, as usual. That's the worst part.
