    I worked at Dynetics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Dynetics employs a lot of intelligent, hard working people and is involved in a variety of fields like sensors, cyber and propulsion. They offer competitive salaries and benefits and provide opportunities for advancement and continuing education.

    Cons

    Since crossing the large business threshold, there is no real plan on how to evolve and succeed as a large defense contractor. There is a huge gap between the work that the top level executives would like to get into and the work that the line managers are pursuing. The people that built Dynetics into a very good engineering services company are in no way prepared to transition...

    Advice to Management

    Decide whether you really want to be a large prime or not. If so, realize that you can't keep all your existing work, and that some entire groups will need to be pushed out the door or sold off. Develop an actual, concrete plan on how you will win the first few large programs. Otherwise, cut enough employees until you can regain the small business size and continue with the work that you're more familiar with.

    I worked at Dynetics

    Pros

    The people are the best part of this company, hands down. Some of the finest folks I have ever had the privilege of working with. In it's heyday, Dynetics was showing the Huntsville Defense Contractor community how to do things the right way -- you can have a positive culture and be competitive, even dominant in the marketplace. Founded on R&D and Engineering, in the past this company upheld some of the highest quality...

    Cons

    With the changing of the guard, Dynetics is losing its essence and becoming just another option on the Defense Contractor menu. Near complete disconnect between management levels is driving this company into mediocrity at an alarming rate. Unfortunately, the culture is devolving into a cutthroat and at times desperate set of nonfunctioning and directionless pods. Dynetics does...

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what got you here in the first place and do that. This town doesn't need another mega-Contractor trying to be all things to all branches. Dynetics was founded on the principles of smart people solving really tough problems with innovation and creativity. How was this lost?
