I have been working at Esri full-time

Pros

Good culture, good people. Certain offices have great management, and competent leadership.

Cons

No real upward growth or any desire to help employees find positions. Employee movement is discouraged and at times, actively worked against. The most senior leadership feels the employees should be grateful to work at Esri and that should be enough. Insane penny pinching on travel and small expenses is beyond ridiculous.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

HQ needs to clean out antiquated management and refocus on adopting industry standards for doing business. Having great customer service is wonderful, but without showing that same amount of care to your employees means you won't keep many of them for the long term.

    I have been working at Esri full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Less pressure to produce than most organizations of its size. Potential to make your own niche as long as you don't expect commensurate pay.

    Cons

    No career path. Employee development is a strictly personal endeavor, and unless you have your manager's support you cannot even transfer out of your current situation no matter how unhappy you are there. No support whatsoever from HR, they see themselves only as a policing unit for bad employee behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all your superstars are at the top of your organization nor are they department managers. Look around, see who is really coming up with the ideas for ways to make your vision for Esri happen.

    I worked at Esri full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Raises weren't very good the last couple years, and when I transferred to another, more specialized position, there was no talk of a raise.
