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 Management

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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Stable employment
    Flexible work schedule
    College-like campus
    Not beholden to stockholders or quarterly numbers
    Jack's vision of making the world a better place

    Cons

    Lack of promotion from within the organization
    Lack of even cost of living allowances
    Minimal 401K match
    Benefits package is average at best
    Vacation is capped at 4 weeks/year after 10 years of service

    Advice to Management

    Why do we keep hiring middle managers from outside the company? If existing management does not have somebody "waiting in the wings" that could step in when a manager leaves, what does that say about their abilities as a manager?

    After 20 years of service you give employees a rubber chicken dinner in the parking lot/street and give out a glass paperweight in the shape of a magnifying glass without even bothering to engrave the employees name on it? Way to reward loyalty!!
