    I worked at EFI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility, Great coworkers, Benefits. Ability to grow with in the team. Diverse group and helpful employees throughout the company. Very knowledgeable employees.

    Cons

    Management blind spots, bottom line vs. value of employee resources. Created goals and mentality of we are a great team, but when goals were attained through a lot of team effort, employees did not share in the benefits. Talked the talk, but didn't walk the walk.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people, I felt a change has occurred in the last 5 years and the increases were stagnant. Odd response from management in a group setting when asked about the stagnant increases ... 'well you can always find a job somewhere else'

    I worked at EFI full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers, flexibility and good benefits.

    Cons

    New management in the last few years has changed what was a relaxed culture has changed to an atmosphere of trying to make more money with a lot less resources and running employees to the ground. Management has become like drill sergeants to their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Better start to recognize that employees are dropping like flies to find employment that pays better and where they are treated with respect.

    I worked at EFI full-time

    Pros

    Good pay. Work from home. By and large, great people to work with.

    Cons

    Too many managers. Very stressful daily workload. Trying to implement Scrum/Agile but it's not successful because of work demands. All technical positions are moving to India. Technical teams are shrinking but workload is increasing.
