    Worth it

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, profit sharing, fulfilling work, great owner, awesome people to work with, mature management, good life/work balance, if something isn't good or working, it gets fixed or changed.

    ConsYou need self confidence and to be a self-starter, you may find yourself left on your own to make a difference. California management culture may be difficult for some to understand.

    AWESOME place to work!!!

    Intern (Former Employee) Redlands, CA

    ProsWorking with creative, brilliant, talented people from all over the world on a beautiful campus where you have endless opportunities to learn, grow, and be involved in the quaint Redlands community.

    ConsThe morale and day-to-day experience tends to vary depending on which department you work in.

    Sr Software Engineer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHQ only: A real office, not cubicle. Nice profit sharing, full benefits a la Microsoft. Very stable company that provides employment for life. Nice city, quiet life, low real estate prices.

    ConsNot much career movement. If you want something more, you either move to the less quiet area or create a startup.

    Great place to work, you will need to find your path here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros-Great people - always willing to help, tend to be very friendly
    -Best GIS technology - leading the field
    -Relaxed culture - casual atmosphere makes most things easier
    -Very little hierarchy in most divisions
    -Incredible benefits
    -Good pay - you won't get filthy rich, but you will be fairly compensated

    ConsIts still a group of people. There is some politics, but not too much. Sometimes the technical direction seems to shift before settling onto a clear path. Not all groups are fully connected. You will need to find your own career here, but the good news is you can move around inside the company

    It's all about mapping

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Redlands, CA

    ProsGreat benefits, great people. Lots of trees and plenty of work to be done.

    ConsDepending on your team: crazy politics, micromanagement, very scattered responsibilities, with very little advancement opportunity.

    General - older workforce with an old school mentality, very reactive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow for more cross-functional development of your workforce and reduce the glorification of being busy amongst teams.
