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 Management

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

    The problems being tackled at DigitalGlobe are not easy ones, and there is no doubt it takes hard work and dedication to achieve our goals. DG is therefore a high energy and innovative place to work, and a place where hard efforts manifest into real outcomes that benefit the world around us in non-trivial ways
    For those wanting a challenge in the aims of achieving greatness...step right up!

    Cons

    DigitalGlobe plays in a market that is rapidly evolving and staying focused becomes understandably difficult. This unfortunately gets trickled down throughout the company by the way of uncertainty, and uncertainty is counter-productive in an inherently fast paced work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice at what work is actually being done at the lower levels and by whom
