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.

    Pros

    I was scheduled for 2 phone interviews .First one was with the manager of Software Products team and after clearing that I received an email for the second interview with the Software Quality Assurance Director.Both interviews went well and I received the offer after 2 days.
    I liked the short interview process.Interviews were very easy and they also increased my hourly wage from $25/hour to $27/hour upon my request.

    Cons

    They don't provide relocation expense.

    Pros

    Fairly low stress if you turn off your brain, turn off creativity, and shut your mouth - just fly under the radar.

    Cons

    - No career development at all. You better like your pay and position when you join, because it's unlikely either will ever change.
    - Low pay, shamefully low annual pay increases (3-4% is considered high)
    - Insulting micromanaged environment
    - No praise for excelling or trying something new, just cutting you down when something doesn't meet ever changing expectations (of which you're not aware)
    - No leadership or communication from management
    - Can't trust management
    - Operates by a hierarchical caste system
    - no respect for employees - "when I want your opinion I'll ask the director what it is and then give it to you."

    Advice to Management

    You hired smart people, let them use their brains.
