    Pros

    There is nothing good about this company.

    Cons

    They don't have any backup people to do work when employees are sick or on vacation. They expect to do too much with too little. Customers, and employees, are leaving left and right and management refuses to wake up to reality to figure out why. As long as they choose to remain complacent and ignore the plethora of problems that are plaguing this company, they will never grow and will always be a small company. To say DP is fast growing is a joke and an absolute lie.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the sand and wake up to a few realities around you. Your employees are unhappy, your clients are unhappy. Your products don't half work and have more problems than are necessary. As long as you ignore these problems, you will continue to have employees and clients leave.

    Pros

    Family-friendly. A lot of "personal touch". Senior management is willing to invest in new process, technologies and training with an eye toward the long-term. Improving customer service is a key focus. The company has done well over the decades without the business best practices that exist because of its superior product set. Now that the process are being upgraded... the sky is the limit.

    Cons

    There is a long history without established business processes. Employees with a longer tenure sometimes seem frozen when asked to formalize a process and follow it, even if there are complications or problems.

    Advice to Management

    To quote a Pixar movie.. Keep moving forward. Change is hard and not every day is going to be perfect or every decision going to be correct. The key, ultimately, is to continue the transformation that you started and have faith in the people who work for you.

    Pros

    The revenue growth potential at DataPath is huge. The company is highly focused on its relationships with its clients. Management is easily accessible and very attentive to employee concerns. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Minimal business processes in place, though that is rapidly changing as the company is intensely focused on documenting its processes and streamlining its operations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep empowering your people. They are your greatest asset.

    I have been working at DataPath full-time

    Pros

    As I was on-boarding, HR's Don described the culture as a "community" of family-like closeness, which cared for those in its purview. I've found that, so far, to be true. Additionally, though the company has a 30-plus-year history, it doesn't feel stodgy. I'm told a recent effort to grow the business has infused the company with a dynamic, ready-to-achieve set of hires (including me)!

    Cons

    As has been mentioned elsewhere, business processes aren't quite... extant. It could be easy for someone with an established career in a more rigid environment with well-defined roles and procedures to be overwhelmed by all there is to do.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to meet the CEO and other members of the "founding family" in the office; perhaps during the benefits presentation? Knowing the history of the company as told by those who've been along for the journey would be nice to put a face on "upper management."

    As for day-to-day management, keep up the good work. I feel my communication lines with my department are clear and open.
