    Depth of expertise in each and most of the departments. Unique and innovative sales management.

    GeoEye-1 satellite anomalies --> Difficulties to deliver to USG and other customers, notwithstanding clever Ops work arounds --> DigitalGlobe (DGI) got its NGA contract renewed and we did not --> Our stock went down and DGI went up --> DigitalGlobe bought us: the end of a great company --> more than 500 people were let go.

    Good luck in your new jobs!

    I worked at GeoEye (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good at servicing their primary customer, NGA.

    Cons

    Poor execution at commercial solution oriented markets

    Advice to Management

    Need to commit to a commercial vertical market where imagery is the organizing principle.
    New DigitalGlobe management is more in tune with markets and customers so this should bode well for the company moving forward.
