People and satellites are superior; the rest is a disappointment

Pros

My DigitalGlobe colleagues are all very hard working, knowledgeable, and helpful. The facilities, equipment, and benefits are decent. I believe the products we put out are high quality.

Cons

Communication is lacking, processes are cumbersome, and it takes forever to get anything done. I know the satellites are innovative, but not much else is.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Invest in your employees: develop career paths for all employees, implement an employee review process that's meaningful (and fair), grow your workers into managers, but provide training so that new managers know how to manage before you promote them.
2. Streamline processes and reduce bureaucracy.
3. Improve communications.

    Pros

    Cool technology, exciting business. Secure government contracts mean the business isn't going to shut down. Good benefits package and employee break room.

    Cons

    Senior management is terrible and they think people are widgets. As long as you keep your head down and don't challenge the status quo, you'll be ok. The HR team is completely turned over every two years, if they can't retain HR people then something is seriously wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is in it only to cash out and most employees know it. They make promises they don't keep and credibility is low.
