    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.

    I have been working at DigitalGlobe full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Satellites and space is cool, some of the people and teams are great.
    Having a parking garage is really nice.
    On site cafeteria is wonderful.

    Cons

    Highly distracting work environment; I can feel the stress increasing just pulling into the facility.
    Management is out of touch with employees.
    Salaries are low.
    Corporate BS, while present at every job, is very high here.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to shut things down. Learn how to listen to staff, and quit treating staff poorly. Create spaces where people can work, the work environment in Westminster is extremely unproductive.
