Pros

Flexible work schedules are a huge plus. There's never a problem with rearranging my schedule to meet my family needs. Great people who really know their stuff work here. The benefits package is really good too.

Cons

There aren't many opportunities for advancement. The review process is tedious. Hard work isn't always recognized on an individual level.

Advice to Management

Work towards streamlining the review process. Stay on top of management to insure reivews are being given timely and are not extending a month or more beyond the given deadlines.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Compensation & benefits are reasonable for this industry.

    Cons

    Very little job security in a downside market. Be prepared to be laid off (no matter what your level of seniority).

    Advice to Management

    I think nearly all the senior managers are all intimidated by the type of leadership of the CEO and therefore are afraid to confront him with innovative or different business strategies.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The people at ESI are smart and easy to get along with. There's a wide variety of technology and a lot of it is cutting-edge. The company is small enough that any individual can make a noticeable difference if they want to get off of their butt. Intentions are almost always good.

    Cons

    There's been an incredible amount of churn in personnel over the last 5 years. The company is in the process of transitioning from old-school where 25+ years of service was typical to new-school where 5 years of service is industry average. Strong, team-building leadership is undervalued and almost non-existent. Company culture doesn't include constructively critical periods of review across entire disciplines but rather pits engineers against one another for once-yearly reviews. Check the stock price history.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at the corporate culture
