    I have been working at EFI full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great location (but moving soon)
    Good people (many of which have gone elsewhere since the current brain trust took over)

    Cons

    Cheap with money for R&D
    They don't care about the good people
    POOR business decisions hurt bottomline
    Spending too much on acquisitions with bad return
    No idea where they are heading

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to what EFI does well.
    Value your employees more
    Spend your money more wisely
    Upper management needs to get more in touch with what the people they "lead" actually do.

    Current Employee - QA Engineer in Foster City, CA
    Current Employee - QA Engineer in Foster City, CA

    I have been working at EFI full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
