    I have been working at DigitalGlobe full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Leadership from the CEO, CHRO, and other Senior Leaders support the strong set of Purpose, Vision & Values that drive the company and attract/retain highly competent employees

    Cons

    Too heavily focused on government contracts and need more investment in commercial offerings to the market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on R&D/satellites and more on non-government customers to drive business growth while maintaing a positive work environment for employees

    Pros

    unique and amazing product. Company knows where it needs to be, just doesn't seem to know how to get there.

    Cons

    Sr Mgmt lacks following through on automation. Company is growing too large to sustain manual operations and will soon find itself with a big problem. The executive leadership is really out of touch with what is really possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A geospatial company should be using geospatial tools, not spreadsheets.

    Pros

    interesting technology, PTO, about 60% of the people are fun to work with.

    Cons

    i watched DG go down from day one working there. Management became less personable, coworkers became more stressed, and turnover was rampant towards the end of my tenure because of the stress and lack of new support. While 60% of coworkers are good to work with, there's the other 40% who, under stress, are terribly difficult to work with. Some meetings are pretty verbally combative. It's unfortunate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the little people. The tiny people. You know, your employees who make the company money.

    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.
