  1.  

    Great company to work for and even better people to work with.

    I worked at Dynamics Research full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I've had the privilege of working with the most professional, smart and caring people. Management was highly supportive and encouraged innovation.

    Cons

    There seemed to be not enough funding for employee and professional development. Most of the professional development was done on own time.

    Pros

    Managers were okay, but it took forever to put processes in motion.

    Pros

    DRC is excellent at hiring new talent

    Cons

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

    A job, not a career

    I worked at Dynamics Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good stepping stone to a career with a good company.

    Cons

    When 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    no longer applicable.

    I worked at Dynamics Research full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good programs supporting the government

    Cons

    Stability relies on the government spending which can be unpredictable at times. Not unlike many other firms in this business!
