I have been working at Esri full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Very good work like balance and benefits, folks in software department are very intelligent.

Cons

Company location: Redlands, CA. This is not a happening place like some of the other urban areas in US.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve your planning. War-room goes on for ages without releasing the software.

    Current Employee - Product Engineer in 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 ManagementAdvice

    1. 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
