    Still holding HOPE !

    Concerned Employee (Current Employee) San Carlos, CA

    ProsProduct is very viable and should be used in all aspects of business / education.
    location is fairly convenient, Atmosphere use to be excellent and there is room for much improvement. Product quality is very good, Minimal returns.

    ConsNo one has been able to find a consistant method to sell this product. And lord knows there have been plenty of individuals that have tried.
    Too many dreamers and not enough looking at the product that is right in front of their eyes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont think so large at this time. Find a plan that ALL of you agree on and then execute. Target a couple markets to infiltrate. This product is viable. SURVIVE

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Longest three months of my career

    Sales (Former Employee) San Carlos, CA

    ProsThe products that Luidia creates are amazing, they work perfect and the people at Luidia are some of the most genuine and smart people you will meet. The company culture is very mellow and calm and free lunch Friday's are a perk many love.

    ConsManagement has been doing the same thing years and has little desire to take any input to change or improve. Turnover is extremely high and four to six people a month average come and five to six go and for an eighty person company this is very high. People get hired and never show for their first day and many people are overworked and lack direction in their jobs. Most jobs don't have job descriptions and the feeling in company culture is to be fluid and figure things out while you go along.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpeak to the people who do the jobs, find out what it is they do, and work with the employees to improve the structure. The products are great, the culture is great but having no direction from the top is a long term problem. Change the pay structure to be commensurate with the industry, make HR changes, and pay people what you promise.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fun Atmosphere, But No Career Growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Carlos, CA

    Pros-Flexible
    -Fun people to work with
    -Great product
    -Friday lunches
    -Dog friendly

    Cons-Management team with no previous experience
    -No mentors
    -No processes
    -No career growth
    -No yearly reviews with raises
    -No communication between groups
    -No extra perks or benefits to retain employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the Management team and put in place some real executives who not only worry about looking good on paper, but also care about producing quality products at a specified time. Too many ex-EFI'ers with their limited scope of thinking.

    Great people, questionable direction

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople are extremely friendly and generally really fun. It's a much older, more settled-in crowd. Engineering managers are definitely competent, friendly, and understanding

    ConsThe higher-ups seem to have no idea what direction to take with the company. It feels like the company pivots its strategy around the same point continuously for years on years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCome up with a solid product plan and actually deliver it instead of terminating projects every 3 months.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people but bad management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- People are friendly
    - Dog Friendly
    - Flexible work environment
    - Friday lunches
    - Great Technology

    Cons- No processes
    - No infrastructure
    - Lazy upper management

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to be serious about growing the company and establish the process and infrastructure to meet the demands. Listen to your employees and be open to change. The current way isn't sustainable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
