I worked at Esri full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very cool technology and a beautiful campus

Cons

The worst management style and org structure you'll ever encounter. The company is run like a sweatshop with HR being the corporate bully and the owners either being naive (which I doubt) or really distrustful of their employees. They monitor every single person in the company in a way that brings "OCD" to a new level. There's a lot of very unhappy people working here who feel they are either stuck because of where they live (ESRI one of the few tech companies in the area) or have just given up on themselves and their careers.

Advice to Management

Retire please, your 1950's management style is very out of date

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 Management

    None.

    I have been working at Esri as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone who works here is friendly and passionate about their work.

    Cons

    It's in Redlands, which isn't the most interesting place to live.
