A good place to work.

Systems Integration Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Dynamics Research full-time

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)

I have been working at Dynamics Research as a contractor for more than 3 years

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)

I worked at Dynamics Research as a contractor

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.
