    good people, difficult bureaucracy

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Washington, DC (US)

    ProsDRC is excellent at hiring new talent

    ConsIt's difficult to adjust your salary as you rise in the company, they lose talent due to this issue.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A job, not a career

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Orlando, FL (US)

    ProsGood stepping stone to a career with a good company.

    ConsWhen customer management complained to me about DRC PM work ethic, I went to PM, then local office director. Was informed I'd been "downsized" within 30 days. Prime then cut PM hours to zero & hired me. DRC expands by buying other companies, not by growing internally.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe world doesn't rotate around Andover. Support staff (expense claims, HR) universally annoyed when asked questions ("When will my expense report be paid?").

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Was a great company.

    Manager (Former Employee) Andover, MA (US)

    ProsFamily like atmosphere. Is currently going through an acquisition, so hopefully they will be able to keep some of it alive.

    ConsSlow to react on some things. I felt that sometimes things moved at a glacial pace. Change will hopefully be good for them.

    Advice to Senior Managementno longer applicable.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Prosgood programs supporting the government

    A good place to work.

    Systems Integration Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsI have been happy with DRC's culture, which is more personal than I would've thought. The benefits and salary are competitive and I am in a job that fits my skill set nicely.

    ConsThere seems to be a contraction of business in my area, so opportunities for growth and expansion seem limited.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication regarding business opportunities and growth potential for the company would help employees better plan their careers

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not A Trustworthy Company. Unethical Practices

    Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) Arlington, VA (US)

    ProsHave contracts with good clients

    ConsVery unreliable company. The management only looks for money and they don't care for their employees. They put unethical pressure on employees to advance their business. Will never recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of managers who are unprofessional and unethical before they irreparably damage the reputation of DRC

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Research analyst

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLife work balance is okay, some telecommuting options available, salaries and benefits are generally good. Company provides training opportunities.

    ConsCompany doesn't invest in employees beyond corporate training. Turnover is high, management isn't strong and that creates a stressful environment.
