    I worked at EFI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best flex time a person could enjoy and long holidays.
    Pay was good and the work environment was good. A lot of nice people that I worked with, very down to earth... unlike upper management.

    Cons

    New management/ Upper management did not allow time to skill up with education. Limited time on projects. Working extra long hours and no appreciation. Non-stop communication (micro management 24/7)

    Advice to Management

    Give breathing space, allow time for education and stop communicating to employees after hours.

    I worked at EFI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They provide good benefits and have a cafeteria onsite. The campus itself is gorgeous and very modern.

    Cons

    This is a horrible company to work for. Management is all talk, no action and always play the blame game when a problem occurs. With companies like Facebook, Google, Apple, etc in the area it is not worth working here. You are better off at these more efficient companies or a start up. The pay is well below market standards and they will work you 10+ hours a day. New Grads especially should stay away! This company will provide no training or career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Board needs to get rid of the CEO and CFO and hire leadership that will get management to invest in its employees.
