Former Employee - Account Manager in Vienna, VA

I worked at Esri full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Phenomenal team and technology stack. Enthusiastic user/customers. Novel approach to pay and benefits that actually works for some employees. ESRI has changed the face of the GIS industry

Cons

Doesn't play well with others. Although ESRI has always supported the standards community, its approach to partnering is constrained to companies that stay true to the ESRI product stack.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually I'm encouraged by what I've seen lately of their engagement with open source efforts and competing technologies.

    I have been working at Esri full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people. Lots of trees and plenty of work to be done.

    Cons

    Depending on your team: crazy politics, micromanagement, very scattered responsibilities, with very little advancement opportunity.

    General - older workforce with an old school mentality, very reactive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more cross-functional development of your workforce and reduce the glorification of being busy amongst teams.

    I have been working at Esri full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many GIS resources accessible. Redlands is cheap (for a reason though).

    Cons

    Poor management. Little opportunity for career advancement. Aging staff. No contingency plan for when Jack retires. Micromanagement in every department. Company is overrun with politics to the extreme. HR is there to help the company, not the employee, proceed with caution. Salary is lower than other companies in the region, and much lower than in Silicon Valley. Little to no opportunity to move within company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers with experience managing.
