    I have been working at EFI Global full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, and pay! Bonuses are the best in the industry! Hard workers get compensated for going the extra mile!

    Cons

    So much work available sometimes it hard to use your vacation/PTO time.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good to have executive management visit the local offices quarterly for them to get to know how the office is doing and get to know the people there better that bring in he cash to the firm... Our executive management hasn’t been to our office in over a year...

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at EFI Global full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None, the positives that existed for EFI in the past are now gone with the merger.

    Cons

    There is much that could be said but it would be best to say that this is an 'engineering' firm that does not respect or value professional staff. If you work here, you will have to make sacrifices in your time, health, and family for which you will not be compensated. Basically, if you want to be a constantly spinning cog in a highly repetitive and regulated existence, this may work for you. If you want to grow and...

    EFI's old culture was workable. There is no redemption with the new culture post merger.
