I worked at DRS Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great technology. Great co workers. A great group of VP/GMs across the board. Pay and compensation was great. Benefits were also great. Two thumbs up.

Cons

Struggling with the declining defense market. Seems like management is too focused on the next quarters earnings instead of really focusing on the future direction of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on a more focused strategic vision.

    Pros

    Not having to work at plant,
    Fun at times
    Work was very challenging

    Cons

    They have been doing personnel cut-backs in the hundreds each time.
    Very hard to plan on long term employment due to reductions in force
    Managers used Florida's right to work status as a constant threat, will fire for no needed reason
    No room for company growth
    Jobs are based on who you know, not what you know.
    Very poor communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has to be a better way to save the company then doing mass layoffs. It not only hurt the company but it also hurts toe surrounding economy.
    DRS is turing into the same as surrounding DoD companies who do mass layoffs.
    Time to invest in moving into the civilian sector to ry and generate revenue.

    Pros

    Great benefits, salary, and people. I enjoyed working there for several years and don't regret one second.

    Cons

    Hard economic times are really reeking havoc on the company's bottom-line. Difficult to say from one day to the next if your position will be retained.
    Hopefully this is short lived and DRS will regain its' status as a defense contractor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish that I could say something helpful. There are people a lot smarter than me trying to make a good run - good luck. And, I do mean that. I wish the best to those running the business.
