    I worked at DigitalGlobe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with very smart, talented people and did some of the best programming of my career. I was able to use my math & engineering skills and learned a lot about the aerospace domain. Engineers were empowered to build good software, more so than at some other places I've worked. I made a lot of friends there and was sad to go. Needed a shorter commute and better work/life balance.

    Cons

    It was a sweatshop. I worked lots of hours and weekends. When I worked there they had an annual layoff. I survived 3 of them but it took a toll on morale.

    I worked at DigitalGlobe full-time

    Pros

    Complex engineering with many opportunities to grow as an engineer and a manager.

    Cons

    Unbearable workload. This organization expects employees to work nights and weekends for extended periods of time with no relief. When people leave, others are expected to take up their workload.

    Advice to Management

    Not everything is an emergency. Plan and prioritize so that the workload is manageable. Hire the correct number of people to do the job.
