Pros

no lay offs, nice city, career wise and salary wise some departments are better to work for and some positions pay a lot better, but you have to be lucky to get into those positions

Cons

no career growth, no management (personnel or projects). low pay and low raises, employees always complaining about bad pay and raises, being stuck in a dead end job.

Advice to Management

start listening to and caring about employee careers. ESRI is a sinking ship, it might take another 10 years for it to sink completely, but by then it will be too late.

    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.
