"I've worked with DFSS for a few years and the environment is fast-paced and challenging. Due to the political nature of the government, demands are rapid and forever shifting. DFSS has great leadership but in senior management, it doesn't offer the work/life balance much large organization provides its employees."

"The job itself is very fulfilling. Management leaves a lot to be desired. Middle management has less training than the technicians themselves, which leaves the technicians to rely on each other."
