  1.  

    Very good company; good to their employees. Too bad they were bought out.

    I worked at GeoEye full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A good company with great people! They provided regular employee appreciation events and offered excellent benefits (including pet insurance!). Everyone I dealt with was friendly, generous and helpful. I will miss that environment.

    Cons

    Main complaint was a lack of information 'trickled down' from upper management to the lower staff.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at GeoEye full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Everyone I encountered, from the CEO to the custodian, was kind, friendly and helpful. They held regular employee appreciation events, and offered great benefits (including pet health insurance!). My department was a team of supportive and encouraging people who were all professional but fun to work with.

    Cons

    They could have improved the 'trickle-down' dissemination of information. Otherwise, I can't think of any complaints.

    I worked at GeoEye full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Imagery was very interesting, leading technology. Opportunities for advancement, company grew. Having a great office space was great for productivity. Seriously took the fact that this is a Global business.

    Cons

    Needed better transparency in some departments. Now that it has been bought will need a year for the dust to settle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New DigitalGlobe Management would benefit to listen to former GeoEye employees. Too much talent is being thrown out, consultants did not perform a reasonable review of talent.
