    Good company if you just want a job, not a career.

    I have been working at Esri Canada full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, 4 Fridays off each summer, stable work environment, friendly people, flexible hours (to a degree). Some people are very happy working here. It is a great place to be if you are content with just having a job that stays the same for years.

    Cons

    No career growth opportunities or support for learning new skills. Stagnant management. Little creativity. The focus has shifted away from making the customer successful to just making money. The management doesn't seem to be aware of the downward spiral in morale. The general consensus seems to be that the "Canada's Best Managed Companies" award was simply purchased, as it doesn't reflect many of the employees experiences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation for the impressive people you have working for you. Don't let what used to be a great culture disappear completely.

    Pros

    Esri Canada is a well managed company, that was awarded Canda Best Managed Company by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums. The company values its employees and provide a balance work/life environment. It's benefit includes full health benefit, plenty of vacation time (including paid time off between Christmas and the new year), paid holidays, floater, sick days, and every other Friday off during July and August. The company also offers a retirement plan, which includes a Group RRSP and a Deferred Profit Sharing Plan (DPSP).

    Cons

    Since Esri Canada offer a great career opportunity, it also mean that the advancement opportunity within the company are few and far in between.

    Pros

    They are very flexible and managers are trained well to deal with fellow workers.

    Cons

    They have issues keeping track of tasks and organization. They only keep one individual on a task, if that person is absent then they don't have anybody else to depend on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people.
