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

Pros

My immediate supervisors have been great. The work has been plentiful and challenging.

Cons

lots of lay-offs over the years.

Advice to Management

The company has had upper management issues over the last few years. Sometimes the best intentions do not create the best environment for growth. Upper management did what they thought was best.

    I worked at DRS Technologies full-time

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule, 401k match (after 3 years), full product life cycle development experience, flexible hours, exciting niche products, knowledgable SMEs

    Cons

    Programs understaffed and overworked to drive cost down. Continued lay-offs of employees with good annual reviews. Most work is centered around winning contracts and does not have a definite timeframe. Management is more concerned about program success than employee development.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at DRS Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues; exciting technology; excellent benefits; good pay.

    Cons

    Too much loyalty to non-productive leaders. Knowing how to play the power game is the only way to succeed. Organization structure is too top heavy causing non-competitive pricing.

    Advice to Management

    Top leadership needs to work together as a team. Restructure leadership organization to reduce administrative costs and make the company more price competitive.
