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

    Pros

    The people there are awesome. Very smart, hardworking, everyone seems to have a sense of pride in what they do. Interesting work. Good work/life balance despite the sometimes high work load. Everyone in my group gets along really well and works great together. Really nice building in a great location with a great little cafeteria inside.

    Cons

    Seems to be a general lack of accountability for people who don't do their jobs. Seems like it's pretty hard to get fired or disciplined there.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at DigitalGlobe full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There used to be a lot of really smart people. Some of them are still there.

    Cons

    Management has no clue who are the contributors and who are the drones.
    Buying GeoEye was a catastrophe, but the people who made the decision to do it got off scot-free. Many of the best people left - a number were bought out because the financials post-merger were bad, others left because the environment became toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out who your non-governmental customers are and should be.
