I have been working at EFI

Pros

low work loan. It is more stable than working in small company.

Cons

They force employee to take "company time-off" every year. And ask employee to take holiday when their vacation time is "too high"(but still under the legal limit). Their raise and bonus doesn't occur at the end or beginning of the year, but they have to wait until the 1st quarter is over.

The company give out "restricted stock", but they are divided into pieces, and you need to stay in the company 4-6 years to claim all the stocks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Different department have different promotion standard. There are department that give out promotion just because their employees have work for certain amount of years, and there are departments that never give out promotion unless they have to! ( I have seen a QA engineer worked for EFI for 8 years without any promotion, and I have seen a hardware engineer worked for 6 years in order to promote to senior. But they both are very competent person!!!) (But I also see people got promoted for absolutely NO REASON, and they don't know what they are doing!)

    I have been working at EFI

    Pros

    - Free cab service, Evening snacks and that's all

    Cons

    - Poor HR policies, they think that spouse is more important than the parents. One needs to pay the insurance premium for parents but the company offers it free for your spouse.

    - Staggered hike really sucks. Company tells that they arrived at the hike numbers by considering inflation, avg salary of other product companies on the same band, attrition rate etc. If you consider the inflation rate as at least 6% the salary or the hike numbers do not match.

    - Top management told employees to leave the company if compensation expectations are more.

    - They started laying off older employees but never minded offering good salaries to new faces.

    - We were clearly told not to expect anything from the company but the company expects you to work and become a SPRINTER.

    - Company aim to reach 1 Bn $ without taking the wellness of its employees.

    - HR ready to blame other committees if any complaints are raised regarding small perks offered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just having the word Transparency in the word SPRINTER is not going to work out. You cannot expect this only from the employees even the company has to be in the same shape.
