    Pros

    Great people. nice atmosphere.

    They seem to work well as a team (independent of management), and i think some credit goes to the management for this...

    Cons

    It's not really a con. Some people like to work quietly, others are more social... you just need to find your place.

    Pros

    Good people, good benefits and lots of time off.

    Growth potential is limited, especially if you are not in the GIS field.

    I have been working at Esri Canada full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They actually treat you like a person that has a life outside work. Of course you are expected to do your job, but they treat you like an adult. Go to work, do your job, and no one will breathe down your neck because you are 5 minutes late to work from time to time. They truly offer flexibility.

    Cons

    As with many tech offices, the morale could be better.. only because a lot of the time people keep to themselves and aren't super social, so if that's what you are looking for you might not love it at Esri. But, it's certainly not a negative space to be in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Maybe surprise the staff once in a while with a nice lunch or something, but other than that.. no major complaints.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, good benefits, fairly flexible, opens opportunities to other GIS jobs across the city.

    Cons

    Salary doesn't compare well to similar public GIS careers, work culture needs improvement, certain processes (expenses, timesheets) feel outdated.

    I worked at Esri Canada full-time

    Pros

    This is a solid, stable company.

    Cons

    Not a place to build a career. Not open to change. Not great pay or benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Start to value your employees and recognize just how terrible the turnover has been. Numbers aren't going to get better if people are unhappy.

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

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with the people in various departments during my time there. The management is ambitious and open to bringing changes to maximize business efficiency and opportunity. The pay is not on the high side, but the benefits are great so it balances it out a bit. The location is easy to access off of DVP as well as by public transit as it is a single bus ride away from Eglinton subway station.

    Cons

    - Pay is not on the high side. Fixed salary increases at low increments.
    - Hard to find advancement opportunities as the company size is pretty constant.

    Advice to Management

    I think overall, the management does a solid job for Esri Canada. It has to be taken into account that at the core of Esri Canada, it is a distributor company and that will have to be taken into account when taking jobs with Esri Canada outside of GIS and Sales that you might be limited in your pay and opportunities.
