Mediocre industry

Director: Product Strategy (Former Employee)
Longmont, CO (US)

I worked at GeoEye for more than a year

ProsVery good at servicing their primary customer, NGA.

ConsPoor execution at commercial solution oriented markets

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to commit to a commercial vertical market where imagery is the organizing principle.
New DigitalGlobe management is more in tune with markets and customers so this should bode well for the company moving forward.

Good company to work for, just needs some slight improvements.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at GeoEye full-time

ProsMade efforts to ensure salaries were in line with similar positions. Willing to work with employees schedules to allow for personal needs, including self-improvement through classwork.

ConsOccasional slow periods between work. Lack of career opportunities and ease of access to knowledge of career opportunities. Closed door politics with minimal communication regarding information relevant to employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive straight answers to employees, they will respect you more for it than dancing around the truth of issues. Increased improvement regarding implementation of projects. On many fronts employees knew certain ideas management wanted to implement would not work, instead of investigating and listening to employees the management proceeded only to fail for not listening.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Decent smaller company which was then acquired...

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Herndon, VA (US)

I have been working at GeoEye full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFlexible hours, relatively small with good opportunities for folks willing to work hard, benefits package was better than competition's. Company experience varied greatly depending on what department you were in.

ConsWas predominantly understaffed, lacked organized priorities and consolidated vision when executing projects.

Recently acquired by Digital Globe, its primary competitor. Several offices are being closed or repurposed. Go elsewhere until the dust settles.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
