"I worked for 5 years at DRS. It employs about 300 people. During that time, I was promoted from an internship to part-time and then to full time. My ideas were well received and expounded upon by my superiors, which greatly increased my professional growth and work experience. It also a really great social environment where people genuinely care about one another."

DRS Technologies Employee
in Gaithersburg, MD

"Co-workers were the best team that I have ever worked for. Management was sometimes lacking as far as taking care of employees on a day to day basis. Though the benefits provided by the company were excellent. Too much attention to process check marks and not enough attention to making sure the right product was being developed. All in all, it was a good company to work for."

"I've worked for DRS for 6 years. The culture at the Cypress branch creates a business model that is doomed to fail. Other sites are better and are more stable with better growth opportunities for employees. The Cypress branch favors cronyism over technical knowledge."

DRS Technologies Employee
in Merrimack, NH

"Definitely not what it used to be. They brought in new upper management that drove a successful company into the ground. The people I dealt with day to day were awesome but morale was grave, your personal life and responsibilities don't matter, and unless you're prepared to kiss some serious behind, make sure you like your position because you're not moving up any time soon. Tons of talent and intelligence gets overlooked and wasted."
