    I have been working at Leonardo DRS full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    DRS currently has more competitive medical/dental/vision benefits than other large local companies I have worked for. The 401K matching is competitive as well. There is diversity in our employee-base and everyone is treated with respect. If you are a hard-worker with a positive attitude, it gets recognized. The team is gaining ground on more employee empowerment. The current executive Management team has great vision...

    There has been a lot of change in the last few years (top-level management), but the changes seem to be settling down.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Leonardo DRS full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, opportunities to develop.

    Cons

    Interdepartmental communication needs to improve. Also, PTO is divided between sick time and vacation, with only 2 weeks of actual vacation per year available until you’ve been there for 5 years. The rest goes to sick time. Someone who doesn’t get sick ends up with negative PTO and more sick time than they can use.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working for new business, take feedback from current employees to continue us to improve working environment and attract new talent.

    I worked at Leonardo DRS for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Benefits, 9/80 schedule, if you got to enjoy it. Salary, vacation

    Cons

    No work life balance, management tells you what you want to hear. Alot over turn over in imperative areas that make it impossible to do your job. Upper management manipulates and does what they want.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing back old management. They were fired for a reason. It's destructive to the business and longevity to good values employees. Upper management needs to stop thinking of themselves and realize the worker bees are the ones keep producing and making the numbers, not those managing. Give recognition where it's due. The company is too top heavy, and they over load the workers so they can meet their numbers...

    I worked at Leonardo DRS full-time

    Pros

    For a defense firm, they do their best to keep their people on through contract changes. It doesn't always work out, of course, but if you are a valuable employee, they try.

    Cons

    Heavily fortified silos in a matrix environment with shared resources and competing priorities; nature of the industry if you want to stay in business. Also very risk adverse; if you do not check all the customers' boxes for labor category requirements, years of experience unlikely encourage management to ask customers' consideration.
