    Former Employee - Director: Product Strategy in Longmont, CO

    I worked at GeoEye (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very good at servicing their primary customer, NGA.

    Cons

    Poor execution at commercial solution oriented markets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to commit to a commercial vertical market where imagery is the organizing principle.
    New DigitalGlobe management is more in tune with markets and customers so this should bode well for the company moving forward.

    Good company to work for, just needs some slight improvements.

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at GeoEye full-time

    Pros

    Made efforts to ensure salaries were in line with similar positions. Willing to work with employees schedules to allow for personal needs, including self-improvement through classwork.

    Cons

    Occasional slow periods between work. Lack of career opportunities and ease of access to knowledge of career opportunities. Closed door politics with minimal communication regarding information relevant to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give straight answers to employees, they will respect you more for it than dancing around the truth of issues. Increased improvement regarding implementation of projects. On many fronts employees knew certain ideas management wanted to implement would not work, instead of investigating and listening to employees the management proceeded only to fail for not listening.

    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.
