Pros

This is a great place to work once I learned how it works. Esri has a very low turnover rate, once you're in, you're in. The company supports me to perpetuate the same position indefinitely. There's no cap for the salary of my role and I get the same annual salary increase regardless of how I perform. I don't need to grow professionally. More challenging roles are filled by newer people. Best yet, management prefers employees to not be interested in career growth.

Cons

The competition is reinventing the business model... I think. That is if making similar software user-friendly becomes marketable.

Advice to Management

Just don't retire. There is literally nobody else in the company who can do your job.

    Pros

    Largest corner of the GIS software market. Allows for some personal investment in job through recognition. Fairly autonomous work with access to other people and resources as needed.

    Cons

    Corporate, corporate, corporate even it's called a campus. One man vision, and all should adhere or be quiet. Harassment and lack of honest, safe communication or support.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage, honor and trust of employees brings the same in return.
