About ESRI

Product Engineer (Current Employee) Redlands, CA

ProsFlexible work schedule.
Hardware, software resources provided to do your job.
Best place to work, from technical standpoint, if you are interested in GIS.

ConsGrowth depends on personal interest. ESRI will make limited effort in pushing you to do better. Managers get to attend all kinds of conferences, whether they really need to or not, but employees that actually use technology in day to day work are often ignored.
Horrible pay rates.
Upper level management oblivious to middle management's whims, partial behavior based on nationalities, mis-treatment of employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed better middle level managers that have professional experience and know how to handle people, issues they face and don't treat people like machines. ESRI has managers who were originally programmers, are partial to people they themselves hire, even to people from certain regions of the world and like to focus on only 1 aspect of software development and ignore everything else. Many of them are unable to resolve people related issues and allow dissatisfaction to fester and at times, grow. Favoritism plays an important role if and when inter-personnel issues are resolved.

So, you seem oblivious to middle management's whims, partial behavior based on nationalities, mis-treatment of employees. Above is rampant in some teams, not all. Yet, no reason why you can't see this. There is no mechanism in place for employees to express dissatisfaction about middle management. if you do express yourself in this area, you risk getting fired or removed from important projects based on cooked up reasons.
