I worked at DRS Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I have been working at DRS Technologies as a contractor (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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