    I have been working at EFI (Massachusetts) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Consistent hours. PTO is very aggressive

    Cons

    Management treats everyone like they are replaceable. Management acts like they're the only place in town to work at and it should be an honor to be part of efi, guess what it isnt. The CEO I'd an absolute loose cannon and it even scares me to write this.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the CEO. The work environment has steadily declined since he took over.

    I worked at EFI (Massachusetts) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent location outside the Boston metropolitan area. Like all companies, there are some good people.

    Cons

    Egregiously unprofessional environment. Senior executives sign clients they have no business being in the market for. As a result, unrealistic expectations are put on totally unqualified middle managers and chaos ensues. This issue manifests itself in the form of missed deadlines, illogical workflows and nasty treatment of employees by management. Poor compensation is excused by “great benefits and 401k match” which are...

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at EFI (Massachusetts) full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A collaborative approach to challenges. Leaders are involved with day to day and easily accessible/approachable to every employee. Everyone is always willing to help one another. Continuous improvement all around - Management, systems, products, processes and solutions. If you have the will, EFI will develop your skills. EFI looks to promote from within first.

    Cons

    The energy efficiency industry changes a lot and that means the company needs to adjust to those changes. Like any successful company, improving and evolving means upgrading systems. EFI has come along way, improving many systems across the organization which has its short term challenges (and long term benefits).

    Advice to Management

    Focusing on wildly important goals has delivered great results and fundamentally developed a collaborative workplace. Continue to act on feedback from our staff. Communication across departments has been a key element to our success.

    Pros

    I cannot think of any pros.

    Cons

    Management is a disaster. The President is rude and outright disrespectful. If you work in a support role, don't expect a lunch break as you'll work right through lunch due to the lack of employees.

    I have been working at EFI (Massachusetts) full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, flexible scheduling, allowed to listen to music while entering data, overtime pay.

    Cons

    Poor location, repetitive work, stressful environment, cliquey coworkers, little room for growth, unreasonable expectations for some workers

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff to lighten the workload instead of just placing more work on everybody else and getting rid of new hires before they have any time to learn.
