    Pros

    Flexable work time.
    G8 health ins. they actually pay when your sick and cover many doc.'s hospital ect.
    Good 401k plan Matching upto 4% and the investment choices are mostly good reputable mutual funds.

    Cons

    Location, St Louis is inexpensive but utterly uninspiring.
    Lots of overtime diring lauch windows (I'm on salary)
    The left hand at times subverts the right hand and vise versa.
    Compensation of higher level people is pretty good but the lower-entery level people are paid so little that they leave after 6months to a year (just enough time that you really get them productive). They find out they can get a 60% salary increase acroos town.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the tech people. Eliminate the heat ticket system.
    Reduce Thortons attempted take over of the corperate culture, they were sold as a dieing comany rife with customer disatifaction and "big aerospace" problems.

    Pros

    Imagery was very interesting, leading technology. Opportunities for advancement, company grew. Having a great office space was great for productivity. Seriously took the fact that this is a Global business.

    Cons

    Needed better transparency in some departments. Now that it has been bought will need a year for the dust to settle.

    Advice to Management

    New DigitalGlobe Management would benefit to listen to former GeoEye employees. Too much talent is being thrown out, consultants did not perform a reasonable review of talent.
