Very good company; good to their employees. Too bad they were bought out.

Project Specialist (Former Employee)
Thornton, CO (US)

I worked at GeoEye full-time for more than 5 years

ProsA good company with great people! They provided regular employee appreciation events and offered excellent benefits (including pet insurance!). Everyone I dealt with was friendly, generous and helpful. I will miss that environment.

ConsMain complaint was a lack of information 'trickled down' from upper management to the lower staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Wonderful place to work, until it was bought out.

Project Specialist (Former Employee)
Thornton, CO (US)

I worked at GeoEye full-time for more than 5 years

ProsEveryone I encountered, from the CEO to the custodian, was kind, friendly and helpful. They held regular employee appreciation events, and offered great benefits (including pet health insurance!). My department was a team of supportive and encouraging people who were all professional but fun to work with.

ConsThey could have improved the 'trickle-down' dissemination of information. Otherwise, I can't think of any complaints.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

GeoEye provided great opportunities being a business leader

Director (Former Employee)

I worked at GeoEye full-time for more than 8 years

ProsImagery 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementNew 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
