Micromanagement, and a lot of politics.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsFlexible work schedule
Benefits
Training

ConsLimited paid time off your first 3 years. No bonuses, and limited raises.
Management doesn't listen.
Working in support is like working in a CALL CENTER/HELP DESK. The job ad is false advertised. You do not know what you are getting yourself into until you start working.
You are MICROMANAGED. Working in support is all about metrics/numbers. If you do not meet your metrics one week, you are chastise.
Working in support makes you feel like you are glued to your chair, answering calls all day. If you take a break, you are asked why you are not logged into your phone taking calls; you feel like you are not valued.
My advise would be not to work in support unless you are looking to work in a help desk environment, taking calls all day. Maybe working in other parts of ESRI is better, but working in ESRI support is not something you would want to do or make a career out of.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your direct reports. Stop hassling your direct reports with metrics!! Hire managers with managerial skills.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    On treadmill going nowhere

    Consultant (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Esri full-time for 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… Advice to Senior Management: - 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… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
