    I worked at DigitalGlobe full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits package is very good at this company. It had most generous PTO policy of anywhere I've worked. The environment is generally positive and constructive. I liked my boss quite a lot.

    Cons

    If you are working remotely from California, you are pretty disconnected from the home office. Code architect quality is inconsistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to clean house with a layoff. Don't offer any more execs big fat bonuses that significantly affect the bottom line.

    I worked at DigitalGlobe as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Loved what we worked on, satellite imagery. Not many other places you can do that. Good people, super smart. Felt like we were doing cool stuff. Relaxed dres.s, bagels on Tuesdays, pay was decent.

    Cons

    Stressful, QA management would never say no or stand up for their team. Employees on QA team did not feel appreciated. Lot of turnover in team management. Newest manager decided employees make too much and cut raises very low. Have started cutting benefits since they went public.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking of QA as a money waster and treat them like a valued part of the team.
