Highly productive campus like environment that encourages innovation
Business Development Intern (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – August 25, 2015
Everyday is like a new day with different challenges and reason to live the day to its fullest. A place with a pool of supportive associates, mentors ever willing to help and encouraging you for success in your projects and assignments.
PC Technician (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – October 14, 2014
Before being hired was unaware it was a temp to hire position until offered the job. Management dragged me along telling to do things so I can get hired on permanently. Did everything I was told to do by management and more. When time came around my temp position was extended. Then when it came around again I was let go and management didn't have the guts to tell me themselves. I was called and told by the temp agency. I was always on time and worked any overtime needed. Did everything and more that was asked of me. Management is a joke
Meeting Room Coordinator (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – September 8, 2014
The benefits far outweighed the negatives with Esri. As a User Conference Clerk, I learned a great deal about what it takes to plan an event. And while I had an integral part at making sure this conference went off without a hitch, it hardly felt as stressful as I initially imagined. My meticulous organizational skills helped keep my plate from seeming full and enabled me to learn a great deal about trade shows and events I shouldn't have had any part of. Overall, while management did very little to help me succeed once my duties were finished, I still value the structure and diligence the events department relies upon in order to be successful.
Great workplace for meaningful work that is highly technical in nature
Product Owner (Technical Product Manager) (Current Employee) – Redlands, CA – September 12, 2014
Esri is a great company for those seeking to do meaningful things that affect society and the environment using technology. The company has a relaxed, collegial atmosphere and treats it employees well.
Highly interesting work, social impact, technology and job security

ESRI does a lot for the community, state, country and world. But they are way off target with base salaries and there is very limited room for advancement. They do support education and have a great benefits package but salary for the non management positions are about 45% below industry. I have been working in my industry for over 10 years and this is the first time in an hourly position. It is difficult to be effective when bound by the time clock.
good benefits. owners are generous and down to earth.
ESRI is a wonderful place to work. I often wonder why I left. Their idealistic culture isn't just a front; the company is full of people who really seem to care about the problems people are working on with GIS. Even though they are not that hard-nosed in a business sense, they are the market leader in GIS products. The only thing is that the pay seems to be just fair. I doubt you'll get your biggest salary offer from ESRI, you'll work here for the intangibles.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Redlands, CA – January 15, 2015
It would not be fair of me to provide a review of this business because each department is run independently and there are many pros and cons to each. Overall, its a great place to work. They have a tendency to pay on the lower end of the market.
ESRI is a weak company that suffers from exceptionally poor leadership at the corporate level.
Marketing Group Leader (Current Employee) – Redlands, CA – May 15, 2012
ESRI was once the crown jewel of the inland empire. Unfortunately, an influx of 'horrible bosses' over the course of the last few years has effectively ruined a once great company. Since it is a privately held company, corporate can spew whatever stories they want to the industry media outlets. The company seems to hire only senior-level positions. All other positions are filled with temporary staff or contractors. This allows ESRI to avoid having to provide benefits to these folks. Also, after about 6-months on the job, an HR representative will either smile and kick you out the door, or tell you what your new job title is so they can reset the clock for another 6-months of work with no benefits. I've worked very hard for almost 17-years at this company. I've seen good times and bad times - but it has now become unbearable.

esri is the leader in gis. It is a good company if gis and spatial tech are your calling. Otherwise, you might be better served to come here for an internship and find a company with domain expertise and/or specialty.
