    I have been working at Esri full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I am new to Esri, but I feel like the covid outbreak has given me quick insight into the character and management style of this company. The way they have handled this situation has been nothing but supportive from the top down. Esri seems to be a company committed to doing right by their employees. They even pay exempt employees for any extra time worked outside usual business hours. Some reviewers have complained about this policy - I think it’s an incredible benefit. This is a well established company that works hard to take good care of its people.

    Cons

    Really no cons so far.

    Esri Response

    May 21, 2020Esri

    Welcome to Esri, and thank you for your feedback. The well-being of our employees has always been important to us, and these unprecedented times have brought us closer together as a community that supports one another. Many employees do like having the ability to “bank” hours, which gives them the flexibility to get paid for additional hours right away or use the time as they choose in the future. Definitely a great benefit!

    Cliquey. Especially between long term, warring, upper management.
