    I worked at Efficio part-time

    Pros

    Very good company to work for. Steep learning curve, but given a lot of responsibility out of the gate. Very good training and support system.

    Cons

    Long working hours, although this should be expected for a consulting company.

    I have been working at Efficio full-time

    Pros

    -Places an importance on hiring people with good personalities so colleagues are lots of fun and social events are good!
    -Approachable leadership team, far less of a hierarchy as with many companies
    -You are always busy, but projects tend to differ and so often the days do not feel long
    -Managers give you decision making positions from the start

    Cons

    -Lack of a formal training programe at start
    -Reluctance to invest money on sending employees on courses

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the rapid growth of the company change the community feel - it's what makes this company great.

    I have been working at Efficio (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get exposure from day one. It's an exciting environment with lots of opportunities.
    The people make Efficio a great place.

    Cons

    There is a clear culture change that within Efficio over the past 2 years. There is a need to standardise internal policies and be clear about the promotions etc.

    Advice to Management

    You need to go back to the way you used to engage with the employees. Many are worried about the company's future and seem to think we are loosing the great atmosphere we once had.

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

    Pros

    Lots of smart people who work there, and a great company culture.
    CEO Jens and COO Alex are great people to work for. The culture is very progressive, multicultural and filled with lots of smart people.

    Cons

    Hours can be long - a risk / reward model was employed at time based on savings, that meant if there weren't as good as you wanted, you didn't get paid, which drove some bad behaviours.

    Pros

    Great company culture, and company events.
    Excellent clients, and a lot of good team members you will soon call friends.
    Senior management very inspiring and visionary.

    Cons

    Middle management lacking, some managers promoted from consultant but not trained in managing teams.
    Support staff do a good job but lack structure (due to continued and fast growth).
    Work can be monotonous at times.

    Train middle management, including support staff (managers).

    Pros

    Great place to work, excellent atmosphere and challenging work scope. Great opportunity to grow in the business and become a valued consultant in the company. Coming in to the company, I was concerned about being pigeon-holed in procurement but I was assured in interview stage that this was not all that Efficio has to offer.

    Cons

    I have no complaints about working at Efficio. It has been the best place to me to start my consulting career.
