Pros

It's hard to beat the benefits - 100% medical and dental, a nominal fee for family members on vision, 401k matching and profit sharing.

Cons

The employees aren't trusted, in some departments aren't even allowed to pick their own screensaver. Company culture is supposed to friendly and social, but only a few people are actually allowed to socialize. Ineffectual employees with the right friends are able to blame their failures on others.

    Vague promises of promotion. Zero recognition of accomplishments.

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the pay is decent. Esri used to be a nice place to work.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for advancement. Since the installation of a new HR director, management has started treating employees like children. In my department three long term employees, each with over 10 years experience have quietly disappeared after visiting building F.

    Advice to Management

    1. Gut the HR department. Does the expense of all the new "HR Generalists" justify the supposed savings from eliminating long term, expensive, employees?
    2. Recognize your employees, if not with money then with autonomy and praise.

    Pros

    The extensive interview process ensures (for the most part) that the ones who survive share common traits - making them easier to work with. Benefits package is OK. Campus is beautiful and conveniently located.

    Cons

    Apathy rules. ESRI does not care about your career path. Management does not care if you lack the resources you need to get your job done. HR is a bad joke. You absolutely need to be a self-driven person to get anywhere. And bring your own supply of morale because you won't find any here. This is a tough place to make a career because so many management-level decisions are based on personal opinion and not industry best practices or what's right for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders - not friends of existing managers. Better yet, try promoting from within. This will increase the experience level of the staff. Get rid of the moronic caste system (exempt vs. non-exempt) and base the pay rate on experience and years of service.
