    I worked at Esri Canada full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The employees are its best asset. It offers good compensation, benefits and an enjoyable atmosphere where you can be productive and contribute to the company. It has opportunity for growth and the company uses employees' strengths to grow.

    Cons

    Sometimes the direction from management may not align with your ideas. Some decisions may not make sense, but then, sometimes the big picture is not as clear so management's direction does not seem logical.

    Advice to Management

    Share information clearly with employees to help them understand the direction, rather than create confusion by only giving directives.

    I worked at Esri Canada as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Very knowledgeable people who are very up to date on new GIS practices - Excellent corporate culture, where employees can contribute greatly to projects and the company as a whole - Excellent opportunities to be internally hired and move around positions within the company - Very nice and accepting co-workers

    Cons

    - Not the best salary, especially if you are just starting out - Lack of communication across some departments - no standard within the company for whether you get paid for overtime


  3. 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 Management

    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 Management

    Hire more people.
