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!

    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.

    Pros

    The vision that EF is execting on is great and very interesting. The team is great and the management team is good at listening and communicating. The technology and the work is very interesting. EF is building a solid platform that will combine search, display and social and its very exciting to work in the environment.

    Cons

    Lots of work. Can't hire fast enough. Product is very strong and the company needs to market it to more people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep executing on the big vision of combining search, display and social. Hire faster.
