Wonderful to begin with. Exhausting and demoralizing at the end.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Redlands, CA

I worked at Esri full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat campus, great ideals, opportunity for freedom to work your own way, many good people. Can be great pay if the quirky pay by hour system is played well.

ConsBad politics caused by Jack's "management by chaos" theories. Hypocrisy - if you're going to market yourself as a "doing good" company, best the internal attitudes mirror that - they don't. Arrogance - to staff, to non-worshipping users, and to anyone who "doesn't get it". Awful HR... (and the fact that there are two HR departments at war with each other is not good)... just stone age attitudes to motivation. Absolutely no possibility of promotion or sideways moves. Jack is a great guy... but all this is on his watch. I can no longer approve of his continued leadership of this company.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire a professional company CEO; appoint a visionary CTO, bring in a dynamic COO... and replace both HR departments in entirety. Read Good to Great by Jim Collins... and follow his advice.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
