    I worked at DigitalGlobe full-time

    Pros

    Complex engineering with many opportunities to grow as an engineer and a manager.

    Cons

    Unbearable workload. This organization expects employees to work nights and weekends for extended periods of time with no relief. When people leave, others are expected to take up their workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everything is an emergency. Plan and prioritize so that the workload is manageable. Hire the correct number of people to do the job.
