Pros

HQ only: A real office, not cubicle. Nice profit sharing, full benefits a la Microsoft. Very stable company that provides employment for life. Nice city, quiet life, low real estate prices.

Cons

Not much career movement. If you want something more, you either move to the less quiet area or create a startup.

    I worked at Esri full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A fair degree of autonomy; excellent benefits; excellent technology and product direction backed by outstanding customer service. Privately held so a long term view usually predominates decisions.

    Cons

    very limited mobility internally, especially for experienced individuals; despite words to the contrary, Esri is a very hard company to strike a good work/life balanced; if GIS isn't your passion, Esri is probably not where you want to be.

    I have been working at Esri full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Esri is the leader in GIS. Esri maintains a strong market position that seems unwavering.

    Cons

    Middle management is clueless with no vision. Middle management remains detached from reality and is just there to make sure Jack's priorities are being executed on. Lower management is hit or miss, and unfortunately the misses heavily out weigh the hits. The company is located in a pretty bad city, with high crime and some of the highest pollution in the US. Combine that with poor raises and no upward growth in your position even if you excel and you have a recipe for high turnover, losing the most skilled employees and leaving only the slackers who stick around because they can't work anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to attract and keep better talent.
