I worked at DRS Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great compensation, great benefits and 401K match. Great place to work if your self respect is for sale to the highest bidder. Co-workers were mostly a joy to work with.

Cons

The culture here is poisonous. Management is abusive and often slow to catch on to what is really going on here. Problems are not addressed between departments, for fear of "ruffling feathers", so no issues really ever get solved. Check your reason at the door, the processes in place here are often mind-bogglingly inept, and very slow to improve.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put an end to the "military" culture at this workplace. Although many of the employees here are former military (as this is a military sub-contractor), you are in the civilian world now. At Ease.

    Pros

    A diversified defense contractor with the technology and people to move into commercial markets. Very strong engineering and operational talent.

    Cons

    Some projects, you are at the mercy of another company so you may feel stranded. DRS will do what they can but won't always come through or be able to
