I have been working at DRS Defense Solutions

Pros

DRS has been a very good company to me and I am proud to be associated with a company helps protect the men and women that serve in our armed forces. I have had promotional opportunities, have been treated fairly and enjoy what I do.

Cons

My only challenge is the traffic in the WDC metro area.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue communicating with the employees.

    I worked at DRS Defense Solutions

    Pros

    As an intern, immediately felt the impact I was making within the Supply Chain.
    Was able to learn about and work with a variety of functional departments such as IT, Procurement, Operations, and Shipping/Receiving.

    Cons

    Commute through the Washington Beltway is a bear.
    Felt that the lines of communication needed to be more open; occasional lack of collaboration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needed to rapidly update supply chain from something out of the 70s.
    Standardization in drawings and parts would streamline procurement and production.
    Standard documentation needed to maintain continuity from employee to employee.

    I have been working at DRS Defense Solutions

    Pros

    There are teams of people who join together and succeed.

    Cons

    Work weekend after weekend with no end in sight, or appreciation. Family comes second if you want to have more than even fluff of a raise. Mismanagement has caused several failures in programs across the board that have affected the number of employees "down sizing". Since management cannot run programs correctly, eventually the worked will be farmed out to subcontractors. FWB will be reduced dratatically in the next five years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company was a success for 45 years before DRS bought them. Get back to the basics, what made you a success in the first place?
