I worked at GeoEye full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Imagery was very interesting, leading technology. Opportunities for advancement, company grew. Having a great office space was great for productivity. Seriously took the fact that this is a Global business.

Cons

Needed better transparency in some departments. Now that it has been bought will need a year for the dust to settle.

Advice to Management

New DigitalGlobe Management would benefit to listen to former GeoEye employees. Too much talent is being thrown out, consultants did not perform a reasonable review of talent.

    I worked at GeoEye full-time

    Pros

    Made efforts to ensure salaries were in line with similar positions. Willing to work with employees schedules to allow for personal needs, including self-improvement through classwork.

    Cons

    Occasional slow periods between work. Lack of career opportunities and ease of access to knowledge of career opportunities. Closed door politics with minimal communication regarding information relevant to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Give straight answers to employees, they will respect you more for it than dancing around the truth of issues. Increased improvement regarding implementation of projects. On many fronts employees knew certain ideas management wanted to implement would not work, instead of investigating and listening to employees the management proceeded only to fail for not listening.
