Former Employee - Manager in Longmont, CO
Former Employee - Manager in Longmont, CO

I worked at DigitalGlobe full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Awesome people. Picnics, bagels, social activities. Amazing work - satellite imagery is cool.

Cons

Disconnect between senior leadership and workforce.
No insight into the real problems of the workers.
Disgruntled workforce - even more so after the merger.
Lots of business management not enough experienced technical management. Running good technical managers out by expecting too much in too short a time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your workers - your TECHNICAL workers - when they tell you that things aren't working well. With a technical environment this large, you should have a fully functional test AND development environments.
