Great divide between labor and senior management team
Geospatial Analyst (Current Employee), ColoradoJanuary 21, 2014
Cons: little opportunity for growth, learning.
Since merging with Geoeye, DigitalGlobe has been focusing on cutting costs and firming product offerings. Unfortunately this has stagnated internal growth and advancement, in favor of demonstrating gains to investors.
The senior management team is focusing on growing new lines of business without consulting their experienced labor force, resulting in – more... wasted efforts and and constant internal arguments.
A great deal of time is spent developing internal culture at the corporate level, however these values are soon discarded at the individual level. Employee ratings are designed to marginalize above average performance. Lastly, the company prefers to re-title employees over adjusting compensation based on duties; relevant experience will rarely translate into competitive pay.

Overall this company is driven by senior management ego, but takes the time to go through the motions of thoughtful management then ignores all thought at its first convenience. – less

From what I've heard DG is a diiferent place these days
Collection Planning System Engineer (Former Employee), Longmont, CODecember 30, 2013
Pros: interesting and challenging work close to the rocky mountains
Cons: can't think of any you wouldn't find in any job
When I worked at DG the company was going through the process of going from a start-up to a publicly traded company, so it was a period of large changes. Talking to people that work there now it is considerably more stable and still growing.

Program Manager (Current Employee), Longmont, COSeptember 24, 2013
A typical day at this job involves 5 hours of meetings, at least 8-10 unexpected email actions with short timelines. As a PM working SDLC in support an imagery satellite build--there are always opportunities to learn. I mostly learn from the aerospace engineers and software developers. The employees are incredibly talented. The hardest part of the job – more... is the 2-hour one way commute. – less

Really liked my coworkers and the atmosphere. Not much room for advancement though. You can get a different job title but do the same job.

Office is closing though.

Senior Writer/Editor, Marketing Communications (Current Employee), Herndon, VAApril 1, 2013
Working as a writer/editor for GeoEye has been an amazing experience. I learned a great deal over the past 3-plus years. The executive team was generous with their time and knowledge, and it was a joy to work with them.

Great potential. Senior management inability to execute caused company demise.
Director (Former Employee), ThortonMarch 28, 2013
Pros: competitive salaries and benefits.
Cons: poor strategic thinking and employee management.
Smart, hardworking, dedicated co-workers.

Promotion based more on politics than performance.

Senior management's inability to recognize and/or willingness to pursue and capture new business opportunities led to company downfall.

Since absorbing their main competitor, DG is turning into a profit-driven company.
Quality Control Engineer (Former Employee), Longmont, COMarch 27, 2013
Pros: physical working conditions are good, free gym
Cons: lack of feedback from supervisors, located in longmont, no cafeteria
After three years at DG, I can honestly say it is a decent company to work for; however, some of the management is lacking in the ability to communicate ways to improve to their employees. The result is getting a lower evaluation at the end of each year and wondering why since you never got any direction or support on how to meet the expectations of – more... your supervisor. Too many managers. – less

Fun stressful place to work
Mission Controller, Satellite Operations (Former Employee), Herndon, VAMarch 14, 2013
For satellite operations the hours are positive and negative. Twelve hour shifts are tough but the multiple days off in a row really help. Good job if you are young/single with few commitments. Company holds many social gatherings to get people to know each other. Satellite operations can be stressful but is very rewarding.

Senior Geospatial Analyst (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOMarch 4, 2013
Pros: lots of morale functions to participate in, friendly co-workers and managers, flexible work schedule
Cons: closed door politics, issues not always listened to and resolved
Willing to work with individual schedule needs. Managers are understanding and easy to work for, but company lacked solid communication and had very little advancement opportunities. I enjoyed the type of work, benefits and social functions they offered.

Government Customer Support Representative (Former Employee), Thornton, COFebruary 22, 2013
Pros: health benifits, 401k 4% match, fun industry
Cons: dependant on government contracts
GeoEye had a wonderful work atmosphere but it slowly changed over the years I worked there. People seem to be happy and like their jobs. Everyone took pride in the company. I am not sure what happened to cause it to change. I believe that upper management lead the company astray for their own benefit.
