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

Pros

Great technology. Great co workers. A great group of VP/GMs across the board. Pay and compensation was great. Benefits were also great. Two thumbs up.

Cons

Struggling with the declining defense market. Seems like management is too focused on the next quarters earnings instead of really focusing on the future direction of the company.

Advice to Management

Work on a more focused strategic vision.

    I have been working at DRS Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Opportunities to excel and move into other areas. Well compensated. Challenging but reasonable workload. Very intriguing technologies. Value of the work to our soldiers in the field.

    Cons

    Not much training or orientation at mid level and above. Many aspects are self-taught.

    Advice to Management

    As staffing is reduced become more proactive in deciding what work should be pursued with limited resources available.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at DRS Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, salary, and people. I enjoyed working there for several years and don't regret one second.

    Cons

    Hard economic times are really reeking havoc on the company's bottom-line. Difficult to say from one day to the next if your position will be retained.
    Hopefully this is short lived and DRS will regain its' status as a defense contractor.

    Advice to Management

    I wish that I could say something helpful. There are people a lot smarter than me trying to make a good run - good luck. And, I do mean that. I wish the best to those running the business.
