EF can offer so many opportunities to someone who is motivated by a fast-paced, ever-changing environment.

ProsEnergizing, stimulating, great potential for growth and development: these are just a few of the terms I would use to describe the pros of working at EF. I've had the opportunity to touch so many different kinds of projects and work in the time I've been at EF, and the possibilities can seem endless.

ConsBecause EF is so fast-paced, it's easy to lose yourself in the work and completely lose work-life balance, which is not always a top priority for the management. With anything that is moving quickly, sometimes you can miss/skip some crucial steps, which can be frustrating.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore emphasis on staff development at large is needed. It was very prevalent several years ago, but has all but disappeared more recently. If you are lucky enough to have a manger who is interested in developing their staff then you will go places, but on the whole the development is a bit hit or miss.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
