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

    Pros

    Non-management employees, and those that are not brainwashed into "Seeing a better world" mission are a pleasure to work with. Tuesday bagels and doughnuts are a plus.

    Cons

    I did not choose to work for DigitalGlobe, but rather was absorbed as part of their "combination" with the former GeoEye. While I'm flattered that they chose to keep me, I am disheartened by the level of chaos and overall dysfunctional ways of management. The company has an overly layered management structure and redundant departments that essentially "fight" to take away work from other departments. Management decisions pertaining to technology are short-sighted with unrealistic deadlines, which essentially gives employees anxiety only to later find out that 1) the deadline has been postponed or 2) another department has taken-over the work. This vicious cycle repeats-and-repeats until employees leave or get fired. This is not a sustainable way of operating, and will ultimately get worse before it gets better. Sure, the stock price keeps going-up, but sooner or later the company will have to deliver on their promises which requires happy employees that are very unhappy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO once said in an all-hands meeting that "each question is a gift." Is it truly a gift if the employee that asks the question is walked-out the door a few days later? What about when employees are told that their jobs are "safe", but a week later a group of HR business partners fly-in to a remote office and hand-out pink slips? Is this what "integrity" and "respect" is all about?
