    I have been working at DigitalGlobe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great - DG vets programmers and engineers carefully and hires people who truly know their field but who are also motivated to expand their skillsets. The company promotes a highly collaborative culture and workspace. Benefits are excellent. My 5 star rating is based on more than 20 years in the tech industry - there will always be specific issues that have negative impact in any corporate environment, but across the board this company is superior to any other tech company I've worked for.

    Cons

    Can take a long time to respond to external job applicants.

    Recent acquisition by Maxar seems generally positive but does still have a degree of uncertainty with respect to how the current DG infrastructure will be impacted in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Extend Agile Methodology and tools to all tech/engineering areas of the business.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DigitalGlobe (Longmont, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    There were three rounds of interview. Basic interview process but there were many candidates. Interview took hour an hour for each round. The team was friendly and asked usual interview questions. Although preparation is required. The panel was interested in knowing how genuine, spontaneous and good communicator you are. As this was a marketing intern position, they wanted to know your interest towards marketing.
