Micromanagement, and a lot of politics.

I have been working at Esri full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Flexible work schedule
Benefits
Training

Cons

Limited 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 ManagementAdvice

Listen to your direct reports. Stop hassling your direct reports with metrics!! Hire managers with managerial skills.

    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.
