I've been able to travel with this company.

Geospatial Analyst (Current Employee)

I have been working at GeoEye

ProsVarious employment opportunities, you don't take the job for the company, you take the job for the government agency you want to work for. GeoEye Analytics is basically just a middle man that skims money from your paycheck to cover their overhead, much like all defense contractors. There are many positions in different places around the world.

ConsLittle support from head office while you're "deployed", signed contracts are rewritten, giving you less money and changing your end dates, after they have you on the hook for the job and no other alternatives, they have an education fund as a benefit in the handbook, but when you go to take advantage of the education money they tell you that there isn't any money in the budget, there is no additional pay for overtime, they pocket all the profits for any OT you work, there are no awards or rewards for hard work, no recognition, except for the PM's that take the credit for getting new contracts based on the hard work you did.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet employees keep the overtime they work hard for, give awards and recognition, support emplyees, if a PM says he's going to do something he should do it, do what's right, be moral, don't let a "legal framework" guide you. Just because you're not legally bound to do the right thing doesn't mean you shouldn't do what's right. Be a force of change in the industry, be the guys that make other companies look bad in comparison, stop lowbidding to the point of un-profitability on contracts and decreasing salaries industry-wide.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
