    Not bad if you can stand small company culture.

    I worked at DataPath full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some great, talented people to work with. Skeletal processes are starting to be put in place. If you're happy to stay in the same position for years its pretty cozy.

    Cons

    Very disorganized. No solid processes or documentation in place. Projects picked up and dropped without notice. A lot of wasted talent. Expect to be treated like an hourly employee. Your work doesn't matter so much as getting there on time. Zero room for ideas. Middle management is super cliquey.

    I have been working at DataPath full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family owned company that will keep the business open with no plans to merge or sell to others. So if you do a good job for the company, you pretty well have a job until you leave. Decent benefits and pay is okay. Raises are few and far between.

    Cons

    The company seems to hire people based on who they know or which church they attend instead of the best qualified candidate for the position. Have seen excellent people leave because management does not value their opinion. Very cliquish, and sometimes feels like a high school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust in the people who have moved with you through the tough times because they truly do have the best interest in mind for the company and everyone involved. It is just not a job for them and a way to make a quick name for themselves.

    Pros

    Great company to transition from military with. They are very military friendly.

    Cons

    Primary function is to support military OCONUS. Expect to be deployed and that there may not be a CONUS position.

    Contracting At DataPath

    I worked at DataPath

    Pros

    The best reason for me to work for this establishment at the time was that it was literally within 10-15 minutes of my house. In the greater Atlanta area that is an incentive to work anywhere, as the traffic management "plan" here is literally non-existent.

    Cons

    I met many different types of people while working at DataPath. Some of them were down on their luck and just sent there by some staffing company. Some of them were great workers, and pleasant to be around. Some (including many of the permanent staff) were completely useless. The business "model" for this company was to bring in a ton of contractors and work them 12 hours a day on government "contracts". They billed the hours in such a way that you had to come in on Saturdays even if it was to sweep the floor (so they could bill the govt. for the hours). When the project was winding down they would say "see you later". If you kissed enough butt OR busted your butt while you were there, you would get called back for another round. We called it the "Defense Contract Merry-Go-Round". They would also play mind games with you regarding permanent positions. They would say (in a meeting) IF you did A,B, and C then you would be considered for a permanent job with the company. In the end, they would permanently hire someone who did NONE of those things BUT was friendly with "The Boss". The majority of us saw this time and time again. It was actually laughable. If anyone asked an intelligent question (one regarding thought) during the bi-weekly meeting that person would get a grimace and a b.s. answer. The meeting was all for show. Many people did several rounds with this employer (out of necessity I'm sure).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully since this company has been purchased by Rockwell Collins, they have a better qualified, more personable, management staff in place.

    Pros

    DataPath lets you use and master cutting edge technology and is constantly striving for improvement and staying ahead of the curve.

    Cons

    As a small company becomes a medium to large company there are growing pains as departments rise and expand to fulfill business needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should continue to harness the talent on staff and identify areas where the work environment can be improved on.
