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

    Pros

    Flexible and very friendly people. Good benefits

    Cons

    Company kept down sizing and kept expecting the same work output. Went above and beyond on many occasions and still was not good enough for job security.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the success for the company came in the lower level work. People worked countless hours and effortlessly to make the quarter demands. Yet the company continued to higher upper management positions in lieu of keeping jobs at the lower level. These are the people that makes ESI have successful quarters. It is shameful that you rid the american people of jobs and outsource overseas.
