    I worked at Esri full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Best GIS technology, when it works. They help with moving expenses and with visas. Cult like presence. Users treat staff like Gods.

    Cons

    No career movement. Management is elite & powerful uses HR to bully. Too GIS centric, everything starts with a map. Esri cool-aid is commonly used to describe the cult-like following of users. Micromanaged from top down. Poor wages. Uses lower ranking job titles where job responsibilities don't align with industry standards. Etc...

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I have been working at Esri full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many GIS resources accessible. Redlands is cheap (for a reason though).

    Cons

    Poor management. Little opportunity for career advancement. Aging staff. No contingency plan for when Jack retires. Micromanagement in every department. Company is overrun with politics to the extreme. HR is there to help the company, not the employee, proceed with caution. Salary is lower than other companies in the region, and much lower than in Silicon Valley. Little to no opportunity to move within company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers with experience managing.
