    I worked at ESRI Australia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The team, the salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Management - they have no idea and treat their workers badly.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't fire someone for stating the truth. If employees don't want to use a system they won't. I was blamed for this failure and was fired without any prior warning.

    I worked at ESRI Australia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Market leading technology which is appreciated by
    customers. It is a true Digital Transformation technology which can provide insights to a business which weren't visible before.

    This provides a great learning platform for those interested and explore the potential of this technology in diverse industry sectors.

    Cons

    Extremely poor culture (I can only speak for the NSW
    office). The average span of a sales/BDM professional is 1 month over the last one year.
    The company does not seem to be customer centric and a lot of customer relations are in jeopardy.

    The company is cash rich but are extremely poor payers. It is by far the worst sales incentive plan I've seen in my career. Extremely poor.
    The predates and delivery people are well versed in GIS and are encouraged to look down upon sales professionals who may not come with a GIS background.
    There is an element of distrust. For a company of 200 employees, there's a lot of hierarchy and exists a culture of micro-management and limited flexibility. The management is upright about men being dressed in ties on a daily basis which emphasises the lack of flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    This is for the Boustead Board in Singapore who own

    Esri Australia; there needs to be a change at the helm. The company is run like a dictatorship and the management has no clue on the market remuneration.

    It's a toxic culture which needs to be addressed; and as we know, culture comes from the top.

    Advice to Management

    Consider and reflect upon the knowledge, skills and customer relationships that have walked out the door in the last twelve months. It is time to act.

    Pros

    Located in all Australian cities
    Product company with professional services
    Good market footprint and good customers

    Cons

    Lack of new major projects
    Lack of opportunities to grow
    Accumulating middle class managers without core technical background
    Consultants with real value to company are not always acknowledged
    High attrition during last 1 year
    Diminishing workforce due to unhealthy politics and unwanted hierarchy

    Advice to Management

    Hiring so many managers will not resolve company's problems. It will just deteriorate things and demotivates the team that is really doing the job(bringing revenue to the company)

    Pros

    Good base salary + super + comms and expense credit card. Also frequent training and associated travel.

    Cons

    Business improvement ideas are not always acknowledged or attributed to the individual that suggested the idea.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management should listen more to those that are at the coal face of the business to improve business outcomes and facilitate meaningful change where required.
