Accounts Receivables and Office Support Clerk (Former Employee), Ottawa, ON – June 25, 2014
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.
Really enjoyed working at DRS was very sad when I got layed off.

Pros: salary, co-workers
Cons: isolated to small base in iraq
There typical work day was spent monitoring the network and responding accordingly. My co-workers were fantastic. Everyone was highly knowledgeable in their area of expertise willing to share that knowledge. We all taught one another each others jobs, satellite, networking and systems administration. Management was casual, open to suggestions, approachable, – more... not afraid to get their hands dirty and caring. The hardest part of the job was it was in Iraq. The most enjoyable part of the job were my co-workers and their willingness to teach me their jobs so we all could succeed. – less
