I worked at DigitalGlobe

Pros

Great people work at DigitalGlobe. Lots of outdoorsy types and fun loving beer drinkers. Super cool technology and lots of brilliant folks.

Cons

Upper level leadership often seemed unwilling to hear about mistakes made by their predecessors and therefore were doomed to repeat those mistakes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

when i was employed there management definitely promoted their favorite people no matter if they were competent or not...hopefully this has changed.

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

    Pros

    The people at DG are fantastic, and the work is fulfilling. The company's adopted Purpose, Vision, and Values (see company website) are taken seriously by the employees. The company has given the employees a good selection of insurance benefits to chose from, for basic health, vision, dental and life.

    Cons

    At times the work-life balance is difficult, especially for those working in the 24x7 parts of the company. Some of those teams don't have the personnel to easily accommodate someone taking their paid time off.. To compensate for that, the company has a "use it or lose it" policy on PTO. Many people across the company reach this threshold before managing to schedule time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should be praised for taking steps to better understand how the employees feel about the direction of the company. Next step is to take action, and improve what it is like to work for DG.
