    I have been working at EFCO (Iowa) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a great place if you are a salesman, and you can sale the great product offered by EFCO.

    Cons

    I hope you like to learn things yourself, because there is no training. Most of the workforce is there to collect a paycheck and that is it.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees; maybe do something about the morale problem that is constant through the workforce.

    I worked at EFCO (Iowa) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great product and the opportunity sounded amazing. 99% of employees were friendly, helpful and professional.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Lack of communication with local office management was ridiculous. I was promised at least 3 months of training to learn the products and after 2 weeks I was pretty much pushed outside the office to sell a product that I did not fully know.

    Advice to Management

    Communication.

    I worked at EFCO (Iowa) full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours (until recently), somewhat interesting projects; benefits are okay (Roth 401k & FSA).. pay is approaching competitive only if one uses a competing job offer for an increase

    Cons

    I worked for EFCO in the engineering department for over five years, and nothing really ever got better. Empty promises are made for promotions, trips & other ‘perks’ with no follow-through whatsoever; lip service is given to “education”, but in reality no training or development opportunities are provided: people are simply ‘used-up’ without so much as a thank you. Managers are clueless about fostering employee growth as well as gauging skill level & abilities, and also at recognizing & rewarding performance appropriately. There is no accountability for the level of incompetence here. High-performers & the exceptionally talented will find themselves and their ideas stifled by a culture that ensures mediocrity & diminished morale to boot. EFCO is a sad little company where ineptitude reigns supreme on all levels & employees would be advised to watch for themselves & document any and all abuses as they will occur; all the while exploring better alternatives.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue about how messed up things are instead of perpetuating the cycle, and be open to innovative & creative ideas and people; as opposed to the poor managers & poor engineers who exist currently
