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!)

    Pros

    Free AC Cab, after US influence they have started this.

    Cons

    Irresponsible Sr. Management. They think that group of managers can deliver customer requirement. They live in theoretical world and never worry about practical portion of it. All the benefits including outing and other activities are intended only for managers who are really bad in people management. Worst HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act now. Everybody is watching you.
