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

Pros

My team was great. Everyone worked hard and had outstanding work ethic. Leaders led by example. I loved all of the people I worked with.

Cons

No comp-time was offered for salaried employees. Huge dichotomy in pay between men and women (although my boss claimed it was 1000 times better there than at other defense contractors). Poor work-life balance. Expectation that the office comes first.

    Pros

    Benefits are good.
    Dedicated co workers trying to do their best

    Cons

    They announced plan to sell businesses, now they say it's not for sure What you can count on is more layoffs -- people are worried about the future. Everything is blamed on the defense budget with no plans for getting new contracts. Leadership changes and reorganizations all the time - just announced one this week. But nothing positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the endless cycle of layoffs and develop a plan to grow the business. This company needs new leadership immediately and a future. So sad to see what has happened to what was once a proud company with a great team of people.
