- 3.0Sep 6, 2021Senior Software EngineerCurrent Employee, more than 10 yearsRedlands, CA
Relaxed and very encouraging work environment
Salary benefits not up to the current market trend. Too many uninspiring old people being paid too much1

Esri has state-of-the-art location intelligence software. They are truly the front runners in the spatial analysis industry. Their portfolio of software is simply amazing. Work environment is positive and overall energy is great.
They should become more flexible with relocation and encourage employees to work remotely.
- 5.0Sep 19, 2016Product Engineer InternFormer EmployeeRedlands, CA
The work environment is friendly and productive. There is a real connection to the users and it makes the work feel meaningful and fulfilling. The management is flat so it is fairly easy to have ideas heard. All teams practice scrum.
It can take a little time to get introduced to the product. Redlands is a nice town but it can get a little hot in the summer and it never rains.Esri Response8y

- Great work/life balance - Supportive coworkers - A solid, growing group of young employees - Training opportunities - Great networking opportunities - People are generally open and friendly - Not an overly competitive work environment For those of you who are fresh out of college, Esri is a great place to start your career. You meet a lot of young people through the internship program. Meet a few people, and it will quickly snowball into a pretty solid group of friends. I've met some of my closest friends during the two years I worked here. It's a good transition from college life to working life because Redlands feels like a college town (I guess it technically is because UofR is here). Esri is a great learning environment. While the work can be challenging at times, its not too cut throat. I loved working at Esri, and would definitely consider returning later in life.
- Salary is not competitive - Raises are consistent but small - Can feel a bit "corporate" at times. - They would not let me listen to spotify while I worked - Management was ok with working us till late before a release, but would complain about "long coffee breaks." - Manager micromanaged....a lot - May be team specific, but manager did not like cross team collaboration and did not support it - Team didn't have enough resources for scope of work - No room for vertical growth (aka, promotions) - Horizontal movement opportunities available, but difficult - Has job security, which is great! But results in a lot of "checked out" people who've been there for over 20 years - Lack of opportunity for vertical growth results in people just "checking out." But as a result, work environment is chill, not cut throat. - No perks - The entire company gets one bonus a year regardless of salary...which is like $100, $90 after taxes.... Merry Christmas! - Building M, where the developers work, get preferential treatment. Lounge rooms, sofas, pretty colors, newest coffee machines.... I think all of the photos on glassdoor are from M. The rest of us work in drab fishbowls, and the facilities were built in the 80s or something. Also, I think the photo of everyone playing foosball is....misleading. Where is that table...? Did they bring it in for the photo shoot? Ever since I've seen that photo I've been on a quest to find it. Never have.6

- Privately owned, which means we don't answer to the agenda of a board of directors - Zero-debt company since it's inception. Slow, but steady growth and never any job cutbacks - Great culture and friendly people - Relaxed work environment for most teams - Great benefits and valuable on-the-job training - Paid for 8 hours of travel time each trip, so you make money sitting on a plane - Exempt employee status for most employees, so flexible hours are a plus - Mentally stimulating and rewarding work - Very approachable upper management. You can drop by their offices any time and just chat.
- Very lateral company. If you need to be constantly rewarded with a new title every couple of years, then you need a job at a bigger corporation where everyone is a VP or Director of something. - Esri hardly ever fires people, which leads to some frustrating inefficiencies and questionable work ethics. - Ill-defined roles in some areas, which has a similar result to the previous bullet.4

Very relaxed work environment (if you're into that)
Low pay, weak benefits package, advancement only without pay or title increases, Slow moving and complicated product cycles5

Excellent work culture and learning environment
Work-Life Balance due to messed up the workload1
- 1.0Jun 11, 2019Anonymous EmployeeCurrent Employee, less than 1 year
Like with any company there are good people here.
It's basically a cattle-call. Constant turnover and you will know why once you get there why that is. You support extremely complex and buggy software. It is constantly changing and its massive the amount of products you are expected to be experts on. The customers are rude and makes for an extremely stressful work environment.11

Laid back environment offering flexible work hours and good benefits. The property feels like a college campus. Overall a nice place to work.
salary below market rates but the benefits are great. this place is a billion dollar business that is still run like a family business.2
