I have been working at GeoEye full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible hours, relatively small with good opportunities for folks willing to work hard, benefits package was better than competition's. Company experience varied greatly depending on what department you were in.

Cons

Was predominantly understaffed, lacked organized priorities and consolidated vision when executing projects.

Recently acquired by Digital Globe, its primary competitor. Several offices are being closed or repurposed. Go elsewhere until the dust settles.

    I worked at GeoEye full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work for some departments. Great people. Good facilities from which to work. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Due to years of poor managment decisions and a culture of aggression toward the biggest client, this company was bought out by DG and no longer exists. NO work/life balance for "critical" employees. No telecommuting policy (Thanks to the CEO). Some departments did not believe in training their workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please learn to make decisions, then take ownership of them. Do not throw your employees under the bus to take the fall for your bad or inconsistant direction. Don't abuse (verbal) and neglect (no training or direction) your employees and expect them to stick around to work for long.
