Shipping Manager (Current Employee) –  Ypsilanti, MIOctober 8, 2017
A fast paced company to work for which is good but there is no training, coaching, or advancement, All upper management is promoted from within so there is lack of fresh ideas.

Nice new facility, lots of collaborative space
Director, Worldwide Educational Services (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CASeptember 22, 2017
Overall, I spent close to 20 years at EFI, and saw a lot of changes. Most of them positive, and it provided a good foundation and growing opportunity. The biggest challenge was the new location of the headquarters, which went from a 25 minute commute to an hour and 20 minute commute each way - and ultimately not sustainable.
Pros
Nice facility, good culture, good benefits
Cons
Location was tough, lower than industry pay

Low morale
Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CASeptember 18, 2017
Stockholders and the quarterly earnings are more important than employees. Short-term growth is always the focus, rather than long-term success and retention.
Pros
Unlimited sick and vacation
Cons
poor work-life balanace, low pay

Working at EFI
Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Foster City, CAJuly 29, 2017
I was hired for a 6 month contract at EFI. It was a fascinating company to work for, as it was a new industry, new technology, and new terminology which required coming up to speed very quickly. The work was very interesting, and it was great to have the opportunity to develop very solid GTM plans for 2-eitht millions dollar a year products.

There seemed to be a lack of communication related to where the company leadership wanted to take certain product lines, and this created some confusion about priorities.

Otherwise, I really liked working there, and so glad to have had the experieince.

The work itself wasn't difficult, but management of work requirements was in-efficient. It was hard to get a real feel of company loyalty based on business meetings.

Many good people driven by inconsistent management
Technical Sales Specialist (Current Employee) –  USA RemoteMay 21, 2017
As a five-year veteran, I can say the management changing directions and goals frequently is biggest issue. Sales goals are unrealistic and difficult to reach, and are increased significantly every year. Additionally, the comp plan changes frequently in such a way that people who have been doing well see a decrease in earning with new plans. I've seen numerous consistently high performers miss a target one quarter after literally years of exceeding goals, and be put on performance improvement plans or let go.

Benefits are good, flex time is good (if your work load will allow it) and as stated in the heading, many good and talented people work here. However, one cannot be lulled into a sense of security while working here, as your current performance/bottom line will be the final determination of your tenure, despite previous successes. This is because the management goals are so aggressive that managers will drop a person in a heartbeat if they think they can make better on a goal.
Pros
Good colleagues, cool headquarters, great award trips (for sales)
Cons
Unrealistic goals and pressure to perform despite market conditions

This is a fast pace ever changing environment. Development changes come in but there isn't a lot of planning ahead of time to better coordinate these changes.

Just a number (Former Employee) –  MassachusettsMarch 20, 2017
Very disappointed, easily let go if not enough work to go around. Was promised a ton but nothing ever was followed through. Brought in clients only to have them given to someone else with no credit for the hard work put in.
