Don't fall for the hype
Administration (Former Employee), Vista, CAJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: pays well, good benefits, some good managers (middle management)
Cons: almost to the point of cult
Literally land mines every where you go. The worse the business is doing, the worse the back-biting and finger-pointing become.
Very little recognition or chance for promotion unless you completely buy into the Servant Leadership program- and the current "Servant Leaders". A very toxic environment that rarely resembles what corporate promotes. Sacred cows all over, and lord help you if you don't know who they are.

Advice to Senior Management – Walk the walk, seriously, and stop the talk.

I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Datron is a family oriented company. They follow the servant leadership model of management. As a government contractor they are good at what they do and expanding into new areas.

A bit stressfull
SUSTAINING ENGINEER (Former Employee), Vista, CaMarch 6, 2013
Pros: friendly coworkers, annual bonuses, health care cost mostly covered by company.
Cons: constant pressure to fix problems found in production, due to design deficiencies, to avoid late deliveries.
Daily meeting on wok status, test replacement/alternate componenets forobsolecence, some designalterations for newer components.

Chance to refresh some RF skills.

Mgt protect Mgt, less so with workers. Often prevent design alterations to older designs, allowing product to be delivered with issues, deficeincies, or fail to meet spec's. Mgt has been improving in this aspect.

Many knowledgeble, many long term employees are less knowledgeable, most re friendly and helpfull.

Convincing mgt for need to update designs.

Completing a task successfully and interaction with coworkers.

Datron is a great company that truly values and respects employees. People are happy to come to work here. Co-workers are supportive of each other. The recent financial climate has required layoffs though.
