    I have been working at DigitalGlobe full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Even as a 24x7 shift worker, I find the work/life balance is fantastic. My managers are very family oriented themselves and have no problem when people call in with a family emergency. Some weeks are full, but other weeks you have lots of days off. Everyone I work with is competent, friendly, and relaxed. I personally do not have a bachelors degree, but I always feel that my intelligence and experience is valued more. Managers are very helpful in helping with career path and advancement. The pay and benefits are more than satisfactory.

    Cons

    Occasionally work can be slightly stressful. Too many reorganizations of structure makes for insufficient training and lack of procedure. Senior leadership seems disconnected from the rest of employee culture. It sometimes feels that corporate and company advancement takes too much resources when existing groups lack resources to fix issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more honest about what it is you do and why. Employees feel disconnected from larger structure.

    Decent. Not cutting edge in terms of tech or culture.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great work-life balance. Both the industry and the company are growing.

    Cons

    Death by a thousand meetings. Decisions are made by consensus. There does not appear to be a plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make some decisions. There is way too much design-by-consensus.
