I have been working at EFI

Pros

good compensation, promise of great products, small enough company size to be able to make a difference

Cons

very heavy management structure, risk adverse culture, process heavy, people afraid to make decisions because of risk adverse environment, lack of trust from management that the right decisions will be made, so no decision is often made.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

start trusting the people you hired to do the job, and stop questioning and second guessing everything.

    I worked at EFI

    Pros

    The salary and benefits package were fair. The people that I worked with were great. Flexible hours and a casual company culture.

    Cons

    EFI has acquired too many companies and has done a poor job of integrating them into a whole, especially in the APPs division. Moving development and QA efforts to more junior level staff in India may reduce cost, but it has to hurt the products, at least in the near term. Not many plans or opportunities for professional growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not sure what EFI's vision is/was. Make a plan and stick with it. Long term priorities should not be changed just to make one sale.

    I worked at EFI

    Pros

    Lots of different types of technologies to work with. Good communication from mid management. Decent pay. Nice area, out of the big city.

    Cons

    Constant turnover. Only a handful of people in technical fields have been there for over a year. Constantly hiring and laying off. Cliquey and hard to fit in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Way too many irons in the fire. Need more focus in order to complete projects.
