Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at DRS Technologies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Variety of research projects in developing RF technologies, nice atmosphere and coworkers, open dynamic sharing of ideas and discussing current system issues

Cons

Problems with winning similar contracts with military to keep all employees engaged, lack of preparation for enhancing company software/hardware assets by those not engaged in contracts, instability caused by random layoffs.

Advice to Management

Tough to create a foolproof business plan with current military and government situation, but concentrate on reducing layoffs and improving software completeness and quality to increase employee happiness/retention rate

    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)
