    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Esri full-time (More than 8 years)


    * Astonishing benefits package, including generous medical, dental, and vision, and a profit sharing boost to your 401k.
    * A CEO that genuinely seems to care about his employees being successful, and realizes that employee success is directly tied to his company's success
    * Progressive attitudes towards changes in the company which result in better results for everybody.
    * Innovative leadership.
    * Direct recognition of progress tied to your compensation, including raises through tough global economic times.
    * Many employees get closed offices, even those not in management.
    * Despite being a mid-sized company, it feels like we have a huge impact on the world and do real good.


    * It can be challenging to have career mobility depending on the department that you start in.
    * As a result of management siloing internally, experiences can vary wildly depending on which team you end up in, even within the same departments.
    * Despite being a mid-sized company, it can feel huge and it's easy to get lost in the shuffle.
    * Advancement can require you to be a strong advocate for yourself since products are prioritized heavily.
    * Software development can be a stressful job (anywhere).

    Advice to Management

    Continue engaging with employees and break down the chain of command to reach top to bottom and get a more accurate 360 view of everything that's happening internally. It can lead to great ideas spreading throughout the company.
