Pros

The salary and benefits package were fair. The people that I worked with were great. Flexible hours and a casual company culture.

Cons

EFI has acquired too many companies and has done a poor job of integrating them into a whole, especially in the APPs division. Moving development and QA efforts to more junior level staff in India may reduce cost, but it has to hurt the products, at least in the near term. Not many plans or opportunities for professional growth.

Advice to Management

I'm not sure what EFI's vision is/was. Make a plan and stick with it. Long term priorities should not be changed just to make one sale.

    Pros

    Lots of different types of technologies to work with. Good communication from mid management. Decent pay. Nice area, out of the big city.

    Cons

    Constant turnover. Only a handful of people in technical fields have been there for over a year. Constantly hiring and laying off. Cliquey and hard to fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Way too many irons in the fire. Need more focus in order to complete projects.

    Pros

    In the 90's, it was a great place to work. I actually loved the work I did and miss some of the people.

    Cons

    In the past decade, it gets worse every year. More hard work, more responsibility and less pay. I wish it would be put out of it's misery - for everyones sake.

    Advice to Management

    To the VPs, Pres and higher: The employees are miserable. You still have some good employees, give them raises and bonuses or you'll loose them.
