I worked at Esri full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

location in so cal is nice, great colleagues to work with, great ideas, GIS industry leader

Cons

focus is on prepping for its annual conference in San Diego and Palm Springs, planning, only dev is working!

Advice to Management

you hired the best, now let them do their jobs please! Get rid of the annual review process, it truly is a joke, provide better compensation for those doing the work: the top 20% performers should be rewarded as such! the next 50% doing as their told should be retained and please get rid of the remaining 30% not doing sh&&&W#t!

    I have been working at Esri as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was scheduled for 2 phone interviews .First one was with the manager of Software Products team and after clearing that I received an email for the second interview with the Software Quality Assurance Director.Both interviews went well and I received the offer after 2 days.
    I liked the short interview process.Interviews were very easy and they also increased my hourly wage from $25/hour to $27/hour upon my request.

    Cons

    They don't provide relocation expense.

    Pros

    Fairly low stress if you turn off your brain, turn off creativity, and shut your mouth - just fly under the radar.

    Cons

    - No career development at all. You better like your pay and position when you join, because it's unlikely either will ever change.
    - Low pay, shamefully low annual pay increases (3-4% is considered high)
    - Insulting micromanaged environment
    - No praise for excelling or trying something new, just cutting you down when something doesn't meet ever changing expectations (of which you're not aware)
    - No leadership or communication from management
    - Can't trust management
    - Operates by a hierarchical caste system
    - no respect for employees - "when I want your opinion I'll ask the director what it is and then give it to you."

    Advice to Management

    You hired smart people, let them use their brains.
