    Pros

    Cool company for whom to work - interesting business

    Cons

    Management was not flexible to allow a brief move to part time status while going through a major life event.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Note that not everyone can work full-time for their entire career and some need to take care of personal things to recharge and give 100% to their employer.

    Pros

    Working with smart and truly good people. I gained a lot of experience and some personal friendships during my time there. Interesting industry.

    Former Employee - Mission Manager in Dulles, VA (US)

    I worked at DigitalGlobe full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for GeoEye before the merger. The compensation was competitive and I really loved working satellite operations. The company provided a very fair severance package and did offer job placement assistance.

    Cons

    I don't believe that DigitalGlobe fully appreciated the quality of the operations team they inherited from GeoEye and were too optimistic about how easy integrating the operations teams and satellite systems would be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not familiar enough with DigitalGlobe management to give good advice. I wish them luck in navigating the company through the rest of the merger.

    Pros

    DigitalGlobe’s growth creates an environment which is constantly evolving. This evolution provides multiple benefits but one of the most compelling is the opportunity to be an active participant in continuing to build a great company that is shaping the industry. This build mentality and culture creates tremendous professional growth and the opportunity to work on projects and initiatives that are unparalleled. No two days are the same.

    Cons

    Rapid growth and change leads to a chaotic environment at times which can detract from doing your best work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on building a culture that values employees and creates opportunities for professional growth. Great progress has been made over the last two years - keep it up!

    Pros

    The problems being tackled at DigitalGlobe are not easy ones, and there is no doubt it takes hard work and dedication to achieve our goals. DG is therefore a high energy and innovative place to work, and a place where hard efforts manifest into real outcomes that benefit the world around us in non-trivial ways
    For those wanting a challenge in the aims of achieving greatness...step right up!

    Cons

    DigitalGlobe plays in a market that is rapidly evolving and staying focused becomes understandably difficult. This unfortunately gets trickled down throughout the company by the way of uncertainty, and uncertainty is counter-productive in an inherently fast paced work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take notice at what work is actually being done at the lower levels and by whom
