Micro management
Working in Germantown , Md. area, manager walks around constantly overseeing like a volture. Definitely was not comfortable. Follows you to restroom. Workers are cool but management sucks. Sorry, DRS..have to be truthful on this one. Stay away unless you really need this and can put up with this type of environment.

It was a good place to work
Nothing negative to report. I started out working there as a clerk. I did not have very much experience. I enjoyed all my 23 years working there. It was a family environment.
Pros
Good place to work.
Cons
No negative comments to report

Worked mostly overseas
Worked in different environments, from CONUS sites to Europe (Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy), to Middle East, to East Africa. Different cultures, different people and customs, where I needed to adapt for day-to-day operations.
I learned many things in SatComm, Network Engineering, IDS/ACS/VMS Engineering.

Workplace culture was one and one only: mission first, for our nation defenders.

Hardest part: away from home and family.

Enjoyed interacting with different people, different cultures, where I needed to adapt for jobs completion. No exception
Pros
Challenges every day!
Cons
Away from home for extended periods of time!

The Place to work
DRS is a wonderful place to work. They always had temporary assignments available. The process of submitting time sheets for payment was very easy to understand.

used to be a great place to work
Over the last three years DRS has lost a lot of proposals and were living on present programs. As these problems finished the cut backs and location closings begin.
Pros
Good place to work if you have a program to work on.
Cons
no work

Good company, poor business development
DRS is a great place to work and the military influence makes work streamlined and process based. The downside is the lack of contracts they have been awarded which creates employment volatility.
Pros
Good culture
Cons
Poor proposal conversion ratio

Worst place in the world to work
The company expects you to work 50+ hours a week and get paid for 40 hours. They check timesheets each week to see how many hours each employee works. They determine who gets laid off by the number of hours you report on your timesheet not by how much you actually accomplish. The management is a complete joke. They are selfish human beings that are greedy for bonuses and do not care one bit about the folks doing the work. They are low balling bids to win contracts that they can not execute properly. Most of the G&A staff have not recieved a raise in 3 years so if you get hired you better make sure that you can get a very high salary because you wont get an increase. Teh 9/80 work week that is promised is not a truth. Management at their discretion will take the Friday away from you regardless of how many hours you have worked that pay period. It is also very common to work a holiday and not be able to take the holiday at a later time. The DRS management style is to manage by intimidation. They are all bullies. They like to write up the staff for every little thing as a way to make the employees angry and hopefully they will quit. This is overall poor management style. The HR department backs all the poor managment decisions that are made in the company as well.
Pros
Bagels on Thursday!!! Big deal
Cons
There are no Cons to joining hte company

Would not work for DRS TSI again until their business practices mature
This review applies to DRS Technical Services only. Working environment is hostile as mid level managers fear of being laidoff or fired. They are a large company that operates as a small business. Collaboration is not to improve quality or to increase productivity but for CYA purposes only. Knowledge management and development of documented policies preceedures and common practices are all but none existent. Peers and coworkers are great but morale is low. Resistance to change in order to play in the same league as the big boys in industry is ingained in the culture as nice to hear but not now. Leaderships ability to motivate and inspire company loyalty from employees is low demenstrated by the high attrition (turnover\layoff \termination) rate.
Pros
free breakfast on thursdays
Cons
low morale, extreme micromanagement by mid level managers\
