    I worked at Esri full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employees in my department were very courteous.

    Cons

    I had 4 supervisors. They did not communicate so I kept answering the same question. I was supposed to have one supervisor and one manager.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone is on the same page.

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

    Pros

    Esri is a very dynamic environment. It can be very frustrating for those who like structure but, you have a lot of autonomy and get to implement your ideas. I heard this is not true in all departments though.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefit package can be better.

    Advice to Management

    Work on a better compensation package and a better career progression for your employees. Some are ready for something bigger and better and the company is not always ready for it.
