    Pros

    Great Benefits and time off
    Great Location
    Since the product is something that most people are interested in it makes it enjoyable to work here and discuss the new developments. There are a lot of interesting jobs and most people are more than willing to share what they work if you ask.

    Cons

    Since this is a relatively new field it seems like they are still figuring out how to best sell the product, which makes the work kind of scattered and unorganized. Sometimes its hard to keep track of all the updates and this slows down progress.

    Advice to Management

    Continue building foundations. There is a lot of potential, but it won't go anywhere without a set product and a set method of selling it.

    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 Management

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

    Cons

    I have Nothing to complain about

    Advice to Management

    I have been an employee for almost ten years here at DG and have been afforded a handful of opportunities to excel and push innovation within the satellite imagery industry. I hope to be here 10 years from now!

    Pros

    The high caliber workforce, respectful work environment and purposeful mission and vision combine to form a great work environment and an excellent company team. Many employees come onboard for the exciting imagery industry and then also find that the senior management and quality colleagues make the work experience even more than they had anticipated--and better than can be found in other companies.

    Cons

    The exciting challenges of a growing technical industry create a dynamic workplace. For those who thrive on growth, purpose and an evolving industry it is a great place to be! This is not likely the industry choice for one seeking a constant work environment throughout the duration of a career.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lead through the guiding Purpose, Vision and Values, and continue the connections with the workforce to ensure alignment at all levels torward the company strategy, goals and objectives.

    Pros

    The Company has a strong set of Purpose, Vision, and Values and makes sure that Employees are aware of the positive impact the imagery and services we provide help people to save lives and make the world a better place.

    Very fast pace. The Company has gone through a lot of change in the last year, but is making an effort to address cultural issues that impact employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investments in developing employees and in providing career opportunities and stretch assignments for high performers. Keep focused on the top priorities and getting flawless on execution of those strategies. React quickly to changing market conditions.

    Pros

    - The Satellite Imagery medium inherently creates interesting problems to solve and a wide range of global customers
    - Veteran employees are great to work with and have an extensive knowledge base in their areas of expertise

    Cons

    - Unfocused priorities and program structures. A lot of projects are started, fall behind, and are either abandoned or barely dragged across the finish line. Little follow up effort is given to improving things for internal or external customers.
    - Understaffed development teams are always overworked and pulled into 20 different directions to help design the next new project.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the Work in Project from a portfolio level.
    Staff the technical teams to the appropriate level to support the projects underway.
    Commit to investing in a sustainable DevOps team.
