They don't take care of their people

I have been working at Dynamics Research full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I came from another company that DRC acquired, and that company had really fantastic transportation benefits that DRC left in place, though I don't know if there are plans to continue that. I like the work/life balance. Other benefits and salary are acceptable, though not particularly good.

Cons

I have seen almost no evidence that they care about their employees or make an effort to get to know them beyond a select few. They're inflexible about promoting out of cycle unless you're one of those select few, but the way it's done is arbitrary and unfair. There's very little communication from leadership, and this was driven home by the way recent layoffs were handled.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More communication. If you want to retain talent, you can't treat your employees like they're expendable and then expect loyalty.

    I have been working at Dynamics Research

    Pros

    Senior management has made some good strategic moves away from defense customers towards federal agency customers. Mid-level managers take care of their staff. Supportive coworkers and good social climate. Sense of accomplishment comes from interesting projects.

    Cons

    Moving towards a body shop business model. Senior management does not recognize need to develop technical capabilities through investment in technologies or recruitment of visionaries or highly successful technical achievers. Limited investment in employee development. Mediocre benefits package.
