Mission: To help people view our world clearly, see its vast potential, make decisions with confidence and build a better future for all of us.
I have been working at DigitalGlobe (More than a year)
+ Smart People
+ Cool mission (space is neat!)
+ Employees are passionately nerdy about the industry
+ Non-hierarchical structure means your opinions matter
+ HR has strong interest in your happiness
+ Excellent, 4 weeks of vacation to start
+ HQ is out in the boonies
+ So much going on in terms of products and services, the company can be confusing
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DigitalGlobe (Longmont, CO).
First applied through their hiring website. Received an email with an application packet four days later, filled that out to their satisfsaction. Was offered an interview one week later.
Went in for an interview and the interviewers were all male. Count points against me because the information security business is 90% male and unless things change, it's going to stay stuck in guy-land.
The only reason that they called me in was they follow the rooney-rule of interviewing ONE qualified female during their hiring process. They did not hire me because I am female.
