I have been working at Esri full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Work/Life Balance
- Great products, leader in its domain
- They don't lay off people, they try to accomodate their needs with the staff they have, and offer training accordingly

Cons

- Salary is very low at the beginning, it can get better with the years...
- Poor management is not being taken care of properly, they'd rather try to make everyone get along, even though it is counter-productive, than rearrange the teams to improve communication issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wrong lead developers, weak managers = less productivity and bad team spirit...

    I worked at Esri full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    ESRI used to be a great company. If you are desperate for work, then by all means apply.

    Cons

    Any honest and meaningful assessment of ESRI on this website (or any website for that matter) will be negative. Any of the positive assessments are 'seeds' planted by either HR and the management for damage control. Look at the frequency of the negative assessments about ESRI on this website and their similarities. Also, pay attention to the level of detail provided in the negative assessments as opposed to the bland 'whitewash' comments of the positive assessments.

    I was the fourth person to leave the department in less than 2 years and none of us have been replaced. The work just keeps getting shifted around. Those that remain continue to be overwhelmed and under-appreciated.

    Not in a good way - ESRI is a privately-held company that answers to no one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Giving any advice to the management at ESRI is the epitome of wasting time.
