Pros

Friendly and helpful colleagues and pleasant, well-equipped office. Good salary and conditions. Training program well established, and excellent sponsorship opportunities for employees. The core business of EDFT is very interesting.

Cons

Buck-passing culture, Inability to manage progress against strategic company goals. Senior management are not respected within the company. Interminable meetings! High staff turnover, low morale.

Advice to Management

Stop searching for magic solutions that will solve all your problems at once. Need to start promoting effective teams and teamwork. You must see that there is a reason nothing progresses, despite a strong desire for change. You should be looking for incremental change, a culture of delivery from unified teams, and a resulting boost in company morale.

    Pros

    Enjoyable work environment, relaxed day to day culture
    Structured intern program but also allow you to explore other groups
    Reasonable hours
    Competitive pay for an internship

    Cons

    Tasks between different interns vary from interesting to mind-numbing. Very dependent on your manager
    Some employees are decidedly unqualified

    Advice to Management

    Many employees spend their time working on meaningless or wasteful tasks.
    Enforce better record keeping for essential tasks. With employees often moving or leaving entirely, regular tasks fall apart because the person who originally designed them left.

  2. Good experience, some concerns

    Pros

    Good compensation and opportunities for career advancement. Hard work is generally recognized. A lot of very intelligent people to work with.

    Cons

    Location is less than desirable. Upper management is chosen for market expertise and is entirely unrelated to their leadership. Not a good place for employees without substantial experience. Surprisingly corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the people who work for you. A lot of people get stuck in a routine and could be accomplishing a lot more.
