    Pros

    Flexible and very friendly people. Good benefits

    Cons

    Company kept down sizing and kept expecting the same work output. Went above and beyond on many occasions and still was not good enough for job security.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the success for the company came in the lower level work. People worked countless hours and effortlessly to make the quarter demands. Yet the company continued to higher upper management positions in lieu of keeping jobs at the lower level. These are the people that makes ESI have successful quarters. It is shameful that you rid the american people of jobs and outsource overseas.

  2. lack of leadership and vision

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers.
    Flexible work (but long) hours.

    Cons

    No career growth.

    Rediculous performance evaluation process.

    No visibility on what to do next.

    Two kinds of managers: 1, the kind that makes flashy plans but cannot execute the plans. 2, the kind that just follows their bosses or acts as a middleman but provides no support.

    ESI has acquired a number of companies in the last decade, and the majority of them have been destroyed. The rest of these acquired companies have been signifantly down sized. None of the acquisitions have shown any business advantange in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Are you really treating your people the way you say on the posters?
