Pros

The best thing about working there are the other people. Most of them are pretty cool and are willing to get involved with outdoor activities.

Cons

For the most part it is a flat organization so there isn't much room for upward mobility.

    Pros

    Relaxed work dress
    Work with very knowledgeable people on a daily basis

    Cons

    After 12+ years working at ESRI, the mindset, attitudes, and general work atmosphere have shifted away from working successfully alongside some very intelligent people to always "looking out for number 1." Personally, I think a lot of this shift has come from the changes made within management and HR. HR has most people running paranoid that there every move is being monitored whereas management has no real say over this or how issues are handled.

    Advice to Management

    Step up and quit letting HR rule how you do your job.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Pay is hourly, so you're paid for what you work. Employees in most groups have individual offices. Technical support went to pods just last year. Most development teams allow members a lot of leeway in how to do the work.

    Cons

    Some managers / HR appear to overreact. Possibly due to some bad apples previously, but give us the benefit of a doubt. Some managers play favorites, whether they realize it or not, which is unfair to all concerned. "Policies" are haphazardly followed. It's all in who you work for or know.

    Advice to Management

    Have a real "anonymous" suggestion box. Yes, we know you can track us back. Managers: take a good hard look at whether you treat team members differently: based on education, age, looks, citizenship, etc.
