Successful to spite themselves

Marketing Specialist (Former Employee)
Redlands, CA

I worked at Esri full-time for more than 8 years

ProsBest GIS technology, when it works. They help with moving expenses and with visas. Cult like presence. Users treat staff like Gods.

ConsNo career movement. Management is elite & powerful uses HR to bully. Too GIS centric, everything starts with a map. Esri cool-aid is commonly used to describe the cult-like following of users. Micromanaged from top down. Poor wages. Uses lower ranking job titles where job responsibilities don't align with industry standards. Etc...

Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Micromanagement, and a lot of politics.
