I have been working at DigitalGlobe

Pros

The company is financially very successful, so job security is great. Since they do some work essentially as a defense contractor, they do not outsource jobs, which is obviously another boon for job security. Some (but not all) of the groups use leading edge technologies, which makes the technical work more interesting and valuable on the resume.

Cons

I haven't seen much promotion from within, despite the huge list of open positions. There is also some disfunction between groups that should be working closely together, but prefer (for whatever reason) to work in their own silo.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company has done a good job of hiring capable people, we should extend the value of that hiring practice by doing a better job of promoting from within.

    Pros

    Growth, new products and services, benefits, smart people, CEO lives the purpose vision and values.

    Cons

    Can get tiring at times, too much to do at times as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build something well or fix it once with an eye to the future. Build consistent, repeatable systems.
