I have been working at Esri full-time (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.

    I have been working at Esri full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Stable job
    - Get paid for hours you work

    Cons

    - No career path
    - Esri hires externally for senior positions instead of promoting employees internally
    - Company is structured around individual egos, resulting in ineffective silos
    - HR is not an employee advocate, and not empowered to tame overgrown ego employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Start promoting high performing employees to senior positions (look internally first)
    - Let go of the extreme non-performers, as their drag on the organization is increasing
    - Reflect on why the main positive Esri reviews on Glassfish are from Interns and not full-time employees
    - Internal systems management efficiency has tanked over the last 2 years and is a larger drain on the organization than it should be.
    - Start eliminating the ego based silos within Esri (require knowledge dissemination) so we can provide better solutions at lower cost.
