    I have been working at Edifecs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Edifecs has been growing rapidly, allowing a very fast-paced, challenging environment. Our CEO has been with the company since the beginning and has done a good job of successfully growing the business. Contrary to some of these reviews, he cares a lot about the people here. We have great health benefits, training and development opportunities, free snacks, free parking, onsite gym and free personal training sessions. Since we are growing from a small company to a large one, you really have a chance to leave your mark, be creative, and make your experience here your own. There are really awesome, intelligent people here.

    Cons

    Sometimes the environment can be seen as "chaotic", which comes along with a fast-growing company. We have the typical growing pains but are working every day to improve. Work/Life balance is not a huge priority here.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps slow the hiring pace to allow new employees to assimilate more effectively.

    Pros

    If you are an accountable individual that likes to achieve results this is the place to work. I started several months ago and left a job I loved. I am glad I decided to make a move and join Edifecs. From day one the pace and collaborative environment has been incredible. If you are a driven individual that enjoys working with incredible talent to achieve results - this is the place to work.

    Cons

    The only con is if you are person who doesn't like to meet deadlines or be held accountable. That type of individual won't do well here. Edifecs keeps people accountable. For those that strive for results and like to work hard this is work nirvana.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. All the recent hires are making this an even better place to work. Great new ideas and energy. Love it.

    Pros

    The place is packed with smart, hard working people. CEO really cares and continues to improve the environment, the culture, the opportunities, and promote a healthy work-life balance. Good career opportunities, compensation, & experience available for anybody willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Company is growing fast, changing, maturing, and improving constantly. It is not an easy 9 to 5 job. Not a good fit unless confident, motivated, self-driven and flexible to change.

    Advice to Management

    Be slower to higher, quicker to fire.

    Pros

    Fast paced company with all the resources of a large company but still operates with the speed and excitement of a startup. Management is open to new idea and is willing to act on them. No bureaucratic blocks. The CEO is the founder and as a result has a passion for the work and employees. He truly has an open door policy no matter your level or role. GREAT benefits package: good comp, flexible hours, free snacks, gym, health benefits, happy hours, etc.

    Cons

    Be prepared to agile. Company is not afraid to take risk and change directions in a hurry. you work may not result the solution you intended.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer ownership and role definition among management

    Pros

    Get it done attitude; no BS; awesome benefits; and ability to make a difference. I came here from a bigger company where lots of process etc. Here I get to actually get to make stuff happen. Love the energy by the CEO - it's one of the reasons that sold me to Edifecs.

    Cons

    Company with growing pains. Company went from a tiny company to gaining significant market share and revenue stream - it's part of the growing pains in the company which also makes it fun because I get to be part of that change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the relentless focus on customers and your employees

    Pros

    Edifecs is a very fun, challenging and rewarding company to work for. Not only is it fast pace company, but their benefits and compensation package is fantastic!

    Cons

    It is a very fast growing company, so there are challenges still that need to be worked out and processes to be built out successfully. I have faith that this will happen.

    Advice to Management

    We need to get proper processes in place to handle the rapid growth across all different departments throughout the company. But please keep up all the great work and keeping Edifecs a fantastic place to be!
