    I have been working at Esri

    Pros

    Esri has a very flexible working schedule and has decent benefit package and a pretty nice profit-sharing plan. You can lot help from within via various sources such as internal email groups and websites.

    Cons

    Career movement is very limited. You can stuck in one position for years.
    You don't know what can get your good raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope management will develop a clear career paths for both technical and sales staff with related salary scales. All the performance measurement tools wouldn't matter if there is no career path in front of us.

    I have been working at Esri full-time

    Pros

    Good culture, good people. Certain offices have great management, and competent leadership.

    Cons

    No real upward growth or any desire to help employees find positions. Employee movement is discouraged and at times, actively worked against. The most senior leadership feels the employees should be grateful to work at Esri and that should be enough. Insane penny pinching on travel and small expenses is beyond ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HQ needs to clean out antiquated management and refocus on adopting industry standards for doing business. Having great customer service is wonderful, but without showing that same amount of care to your employees means you won't keep many of them for the long term.
