    Former Employee - Senior Associate II in Arlington, VA
    Former Employee - Senior Associate II in Arlington, VA

    I worked at Dynamics Research full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Willing to look at what works and what doesn't. Made a good acquisition with HPTi. A decent set of internal tools and practices.

    Cons

    DRC let too many contracts end in the same year with no follow ups. Revenue dropped like a rock. The current federal market is not there for a company struggling to make new sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the leadership team photos. Seriously consider jettisoning everyone with fully silver or gray hair. New blood is needed to change the company culture.

    Former Employee - Manager in Washington, DC

    I worked at Dynamics Research full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Lots of jobs all over the U.S.
    - Pay pretty good, although my rate was inherited from the company I worked for before DRC bought it.

    Cons

    - Didn't see much in the way of loyalty to employees. Be prepared to move on if your contract doesn't get renewed.
    - They buy young, deft companies to get their contracts then turn them into a mirror of themselves instead of taking advantage of the way those companies operate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - More outreach to employees. Get out and see your people!
    - Adopt some of the best practices of companies you buy. Remember some of the reasons you bought them.
