I have been working at Esri full-time (More than 3 years)
Secure, pay is just OK but cost of living raises yearly, great benes including free health care for the whole family, old school so they take care of employees
Vertical structure, hard to move up, or anywhere; private company with deep pockets means expectations are low and deadlines are soft (I'm so bored). And, old school can be bad too, for example, working from home takes special permission, even though Broomfield is a remote office anyway
Advice to Management
There are some silos happening that should be broken down.

As they said in the movie Office Space, "I have eight bosses right now, Bob!".
