Approves of CEO

I have been working at DRS Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

great technology, challenging and interesting projects

Cons

management that doesn't have a clue, too many reorgs, recent wave of layoffs due to defense cut backs, incompetent employees due to bad hiring decisions, no bonus, no overtime pay

Advice to Management

Invest in future technology and concentrate on a few major opportunities instead of chasing every leads ... get rid of incompetent workers ASAP & really reward good workers (good raise, bonus/overtime pay)

    I worked at DRS Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tactical Systems USED to be a great place to work. Back when it was still Paravant Computer, it was voted "Best Workplace in Brevard" five years in a row. My, how things change!

    Cons

    The company was sold twice in the past 6 years, first to DRS Tech., and then DRS was bought-out by an Italian company. When the Italian co. came in, they started milking DRS to cover their own financial problems and management scandals. Employees ultimately paid the price through internal cutbacks in perks, miserly raises, and layoffs. This all happened BEFORE the military budget cutbacks.

    Several KEY contracts expired during 2012, leaving Tactical Systems with almost NO revenue after the third quarter. Much of this was simply the result of election-year politics. Tactical Systems has now been so badly crippled that it may not survive.
