Pros

How many startups do you know that offer a 401(k) match, how many do you know that acquired a company, how many do you know that have very low employee contribution costs for benefits? EF has all of this and more! We also have a CFO that supports investing in technological resources that make sense, he's not your typical CFO - so conservative that you have to beg, borrow and steal to get a new resource.

Cons

Offer leadership training, EF is a great gig, we can be better ... a little training goes a long way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cultivate people as they are the most important asset.

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, flexible hours, lots of nice people. The technology (algorithms) behind the product is solid.

    Cons

    Managers are hit and miss. Some great ones, and some less than savory ones. Although compensation and raises are commensurate to performance, actual career advancement opportunities are on the low side. More recently, cliques have formed within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Market and sell more aggressively!

    I worked at Efficient Frontier

    Pros

    I wanted a chance to work at a great Search Engine Marketing company because of Efficient Frontiers good reputation. Unfortunately after a promising start after meeting so many nice people I realized that it was not that different to other Search agencies.

    Cons

    There was a large amount of politics and managers took credit for hard working staff's good work and also blamed their teams when things went wrong. Unless you were one of the small selection of favorites, the only way to get a raise or promoted was stick around for years and years and just do all the work that was given to you. So be prepared for a lot of long hours. Was a lot of staff leaving in the months before I left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To listen to other staff and not just the favorites and give people a reason to want to stay by giving them fair reward for work.
