    Pros

    There is a very talented engineering staff, and lots of great people in all departments. Working on the right team can be very rewarding. The product line is growing and the core technology is adopting to the changes in the print industry.

    Cons

    Too many meetings, too many progress reports, and meetings about progress reports. And meetings about meetings.

    The products I work on take unnecessary complexity, instead of having the design team work on making easy to use. The goal is to beat the competition by creating feature rich products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since change is the only constant there isn't much to say that can last.

    too much bug fixing, at least that's how it was for me...

    Pros

    Good location, but, as some, or already most of the people know, they are selling the building in Foster City. I guess, like most reviewers on here, I would say that the location is the only pro about this place.

    Cons

    If you're not looking forward to grow as an engineer and be up to date with current technologies, do not work at EFI. The technology that the company uses is outdated, and due to its size, change happens very slowly.

    Maybe if you're a fresh college graduate and fall into the right team, it might be a good place to start your career. Make sure to ask at the interview exactly what will you be working on and exactly how much code you are going to write. Most of the jobs are maintenance jobs where you're stuck at bug fixing forever. Avoid those positions at EFI.

    Do not expect to get raises. Be smart, and negotiate your most desired salary during the offer. Do not get fooled and expect that you are going to go in there, prove yourself and get promoted. You will prove yourself and get promoted, its just that the promotion will not be reflected on your salary much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wouldn't really give any advice to management. They know what is going on and if they want to, they can change it. The thing is that change comes with cost. The company is trying to save money in every way it can.
