Dysfunctional atmosphere - lack of planning, organization and structure.

Verification Engineer (Former Employee)
Longmont, CO (US)

I worked at DigitalGlobe as a contractor for less than a year

ProsContractor pay was good.
Bagel day was good.

Cons- Disorganized.
- Lack of planning.
- No structure.
- Non-existent schedules.
- Not friendly to contractors.
- Sweat shop.
- Disgruntled employees.
- High turnover.
- System non-functional most of the time due to only one environment shared by development, test and production.
- Employees so worried about looking good to management, they are careful whom they associate with.
- Very competitive atmosphere.
- A lot of time is wasted here.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement structure, organization and planning. Stick to schedules. Ensure there is an operational system by adding multiple environments (development, test, production).

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