    I have been working at GeoEye full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, relatively small with good opportunities for folks willing to work hard, benefits package was better than competition's. Company experience varied greatly depending on what department you were in.

    Cons

    Was predominantly understaffed, lacked organized priorities and consolidated vision when executing projects. Recently acquired by Digital Globe, its primary competitor. Several offices are being closed or repurposed. Go elsewhere until the dust settles.

    Pros

    Flexable work time. G8 health ins. they actually pay when your sick and cover many doc.'s hospital ect. Good 401k plan Matching upto 4% and the investment choices are mostly good reputable mutual funds.

    Cons

    Location, St Louis is inexpensive but utterly uninspiring. Lots of overtime diring lauch windows (I'm on salary) The left hand at times subverts the right hand and vise versa. Compensation of higher level people is pretty good but the lower-entery level people are paid so little that they leave after 6months to a year (just enough time that you really get them productive). They find out they can get a 60% salary increase acroos town.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the tech people. Eliminate the heat ticket system. Reduce Thortons attempted take over of the corperate culture, they were sold as a dieing comany rife with customer disatifaction and "big aerospace" problems.
