Tiny on-campus library Redlands is cheap place to live but for a reason Cafe is nice, but food is a little expensive, but cafe is nice
Management lacks experience outside of Esri Work is very monotonous Company is no longer growing No career path will be laid out for you Salary is LOW Nothing is free, no free food, no free coffee, even at the conferences nothing is free Cube farm - make sure you like working in a cube11

Great culture where managers hire only qualified individual who also fit well with the team. Work ethic expectation surrounds the need to provide the best possible products and services to users and remain a healthy, profitable business. You are expected to push yourself to meet goals and be productive in a team effort. Not all departments and manager have the same level of experience and devotion to upholding the positive Esri culture, but most do. Great work-life balance. Excellent benefits package. Beautiful location. Opportunities for training, education reimbursement, personal development.
Opportunities to move into new and different roles are limited by the lack of formal career paths. If you don't yet have the experience in a position you'd like to apply for internally you'll have to leave the company to gain experience and training to qualify for that position and come back. Merit increases are meager at best for sales reps. Most sales reps feel undervalued and many long time devoted employees are forced to leave Esri to seek out better paying positions elsewhere.6

Great culture and sense of meaningful work. You can learn a lot and feel capable.
Can get niched in a career path and it takes a lot of time and networking to get the benefits you want. They are not flexible on remote work and it depends on your manager to work around old policies that could be modernized to increase overall performance and lower job turnover.1

1. Employees get full exposure to all ArcGIS and Esri technology and tremendous opportunity to accelerate their GIS knowledge and their career path ahead. 2. The colleagues are all supportive and it feels like working within a small family.
1. The working environment (Mainly the building and the office layout) could clearly hinder productivity sometimes. 2. High turnover among employees, especially the local ones.

- Library - Redlands can be cheap - Ok winter months - Good place to work if you can't find a job anywhere else
- Politics will determine your growth in the company and not your work ethic - No career path - Management is clueless on everything - Pay is VERY low for a software company12
- 3.0Dec 26, 2014Consultant/Project ManagerFormer Employee, more than 3 yearsRedlands, CA
Benefits; Stability; Great work-life balance; no layoffs; Functions like many smaller companies - good working within your "group"
Compensation; Career Path; Flat Organization Structure; Hard to collaborate for change outside of your 'group'. Lack of accountability at management/director level.HR is a puppet for ownership, and always looking to lessen company exposure/risk6
