Pros

Great benefits, nice group of employees to work with, involved in the company

Cons

Layoffs each year for last 5 or 6 years due to cuts in Defense Budget, average raises

Advice to Management

Try to proceed with further cuts as you have been by making them as painless as possible on all employees. It is very frightening thing to go threw The severance pay was such life saver don't know what I would have done without it. Thanks again.

  1. Management went from bad to worse causing customers to leave and suppliers to quit supplying.

    Pros

    None to speak of at this point in time. The DRS technologies that I knew in 2007 has been taken over by lawyers and salesmen. The salesmen don't know how to treat customers, suppliers or employees; hence the need for the cadre of lawyers to clean up the loose ends.

    Cons

    Clueless management totally dominated by sales with no thought of providing quality products or services. Result has been loss of business revenue by 3 fold from 2010 until now.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to the Board of Directors is to either sell the company or fire anyone at Director level and above and start over.

    Pros

    pay was not to low , but low

    Cons

    We worked at cafeteria style tables on folding chairs, in the middle of the factory floor as we work sound protection and safety glasses as we did ProE design work on a DOD rejected project trying to fix things up for them. We were constantly reminded to work faster, work faster!

    Advice to Management

    Never treat the people you depend on to get DOD acceptance in such a sweat shop manner.
