"I learned a lot about politics and how adults in power act like teenage girls."
What do you like about working at DRS Technologies?
"Interesting and challenging work given that the customers were ready to leave because of extremely poor quality and lack of processes. In spite of all that, the work was still interesting. There were tons of problems, but there were lots of opportunities to solve the problems if the management would just get out of the way."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Ask about the politics. Ask about the culture in the CincinnatI office (most are just waiting for the operation to fold). Ask why the management keeps changing. Ask why the company hasn't closed the CincinnatI operation. Ask if it will be closed soon and what opportunities are available for you when that office closes."
What don't you like about working at DRS Technologies?
"Constant change in upper management at the local level. They don't understand their costs, and certainly don't understand how to do a proper estimate (and they wonder why they lose hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars). I saw 4 GMs in a 3 year period. Lots of political games going on as well."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Get out of the way and let the people do their jobs. Get a handle on your supply chain department and your engineering department."
