      Pros

      Great people, warm and welcoming and fun culture. Also, a lot of possibilities to drive projects, no micro management and there is always something new to try and to learn.

      Cons

      Sometimes a lack of guidance. EF focus on self leadership which can also have it's negative sides of not having clear goals and support.

      Great brand, subpar everything else

      Dec 3, 2020 - Anonymous Employee

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people, fun parties a few times a year

      Cons

      Benefits are good but my god, every person who works here makes at least 10-20k less than the industry standard. Employees are expected to pick up extra tasks without compensation and any talk of negotiating a raise is usually met with disbelief and an immediate "no". Work literally anywhere else if you have bills to pay.
