    No opinion of CEO

    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 5 years)

    Pros

    EFI is a great and dynamic company, with a young management team, and open minded. The company has a friendly base on international employees with offices all over the world, and constantly in search for skilled employees. The CEO is very accessible and the company fosters a culture of trust, innovation, open mindness.

    Cons

    Overall compensation seemed below market. Base salary is below market and cash bonuses are very small, which is not surprising because the company's culture is to provide performance-based stock comp. Stock comp is mainly based on financial metrics and the stock price.

    Pros

    Smart people from many different engineering disciplines all working together to bring innovative technologies to market, set in a beautiful location.

    Cons

    Some of the facilities are old and run-down looking. Priorities are constantly changing. Difficult to lure top-quality engineers to this location.
