    Pros

    Depth of expertise in each and most of the departments. Unique and innovative sales management.

    Cons

    GeoEye-1 satellite anomalies --> Difficulties to deliver to USG and other customers, notwithstanding clever Ops work arounds --> DigitalGlobe (DGI) got its NGA contract renewed and we did not --> Our stock went down and DGI went up --> DigitalGlobe bought us: the end of a great company --> more than 500 people were let go.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck in your new jobs!

  2. Very good company; good to their employees. Too bad they were bought out.

    Pros

    A good company with great people! They provided regular employee appreciation events and offered excellent benefits (including pet insurance!). Everyone I dealt with was friendly, generous and helpful. I will miss that environment.

    Cons

    Main complaint was a lack of information 'trickled down' from upper management to the lower staff.
