    I worked at Esri as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At the team level you will work with talented, smart, and motivated folks that care about their career and the work you do. Teams usually have a greater sense of family than the HR department.

    Cons

    Recruiters and HR will change policies and will get rid of contractors that ask too many questions. I would suggest anyone that is working with a recruiter beware the lunches, the follow ups are nothing more than information gathering points. These people do not care about you and often times will tell you in the worse case scenarios "there's always better opportunities" even if you really want the job.

    Advice to Management

    Jack, if you care about the teams at Esri and the people who really want to work there, fix the HR department and the way contractors are treated. There is no excuse for the lying and the mistreatment of contractors who really want a job with Esri.

    Pros

    Benefits. Profit sharing. Campus in redlands is beautiful. Lots of autonomy. Nice computer equipment.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement because it's a flat organization. Corporate is involved in too May decisions. They need to let go and trust management to lead.

    Advice to Management

    Trust employees. Jack...trust your employees to do what is right. :) we care a about the company just as much as you do!
