Very negative workplace
Accounts Receivables and Office Support Clerk (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONJune 25, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Cons: management, atmosphere
The workplace was very much a negative atmosphere. A lot of disgruntled co-workers, and a very forgetful boss. Found it hard to balance life with this job since your on call all the time with the boss.

A typical day as a QA Engineer consists of root cause anaysis of non conforming product as well as performing process audits.

There is also the maintaning of all process manuals to comply with AS9100C standard.

Interesting Work, Good Management
Semiconductor Backend Engineering Support (Former Employee), Dallas, TXDecember 23, 2014
Pros: great experience fore future engineers
My summer internship kept me busy. I learned a lot about what a process engineer does from day to day. The management invests in you and wants to help you learn. I got to shadow different engineers different days to learn what they did. The job paid well, and was a great experience.

All company managers that I interfaced with were great at not trying to micromanage me at my job and it was the same with other employees.
There was much military interface and we were always reminded of protocol.
Access to coffee, tea and soft drinks always provided.
Lunch rooms and bathrooms always immaculately clean
Purchased lunches always good
Exercise – more... rooms provided
Most offices had windows
Great salary increases dependent on performance – less

Horrible company
Thrall (Current Employee), Beavercreek, OhioNovember 2, 2014
Pros: decent pay and benefits, but are far outweighed by all the negative aspects of this company
Cons: pretty much everything else
6 lay offs within 3 years, no balance of work/life. good old boy attitude and overall very unethical behavior by management. if offered a job by this company run, dont walk as far away as you can from it.

DRS was the worst place I ever worked at in 40 years in the work force
PRINCIPAL CONTRACTS ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee), Herndon, MDSeptember 30, 2014
There is no vision for the future, no advance planning. Everything is a fire drill crisis. The bureaucracy to get anything done is ridiculous and so onerous that nothing can be accomplished. They are understaffed and submit proposals on just about every RFP that comes out.

My co-workers were nice and helpful but the management did not have a clue.

The – more... best part of the job was the bagels on Thursdays. I don't recommend this place to anyone. – less
