Great company, not-so-great management

Product Engineer (Current Employee)
Redlands, CA

I have been working at Esri full-time for more than 8 years

Pros- flexible hours
- training and tuition assistance
- great place for GISers, cartographers and geographers to begin their career
- get to play with the newest GIS toys
- very stable company and employment

Cons- very little perks compared to other companies of similar size
- company has a flat structure; almost non-existent chance of promotion
- no snacks or food provided; cafe and vending machines are not subsidized
- the corporate side of HR is out-of-touch with nature of work
- internet usage is monitored, controlled by ineffective web filter software
- no incentive for younger employees to stay on or remain motivated
- no team building events/practices
- very few vacation days

Advice to Senior Management1. Provide SOME workplace perks (at least free donuts, good coffee, subsidized lunch, etc)
2. Provide better benefits (childcare, housing allowance, pet insurance, etc)
3. If no promotion structure, employees should be given incentives in other forms (increased vacation, 401K contribution bonus, gift cards, etc)
4. Restructure corporate HR employees and practices

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Second-Worst Place I've Ever Worked

Senior ColdFusion Developer (Former Employee)
Redlands, CA

I worked at Esri as a contractor for less than a year
