    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    You 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.

    I have been working at Esri

    Pros

    HQ 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.

    Cons

    Not much career movement. If you want something more, you either move to the less quiet area or create a startup.
