    I worked at Dynamics Research (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the larger federal contractors within the cybersecurity/defense consulting space in Washington, DC, with a congenial work environment and opportunities for professional growth.

    Cons

    Some DRC managers are a bit myopic and arrogant; however, they are in the minority.

    I worked at Dynamics Research full-time

    Pros

    A fairly average government contractor with average to above average benefits (largely the 401K matching of 4% made it better than average). Working conditions was highly based on what contract you were on.

    Cons

    The company was a pretty standard government contractor, except it was overly focused on maintaining its HQ in Massachusetts even though the work was largely in the DC area. As with many other contractors, if your contract was lost the company did not make an attempt to retain any staff.

    Pros

    When they were HPTG it was amazing. I loved the corporate culture and everyone was treated fairly.

    Cons

    When DRC bought HPTG everything went downhill. Most of the managers left and the sense of "team" died.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to what made HPTG so desirable. I am hoping Engility is a better company.

    Pros

    The company provided a 'roadmap' for employee success that allowed the employee to identify successes and areas where growth was needed. I was able to determine that my goal was certification in business analysis and to attend school. My expenses were reimbursed by the company.

    Cons

    I personally did not experience any negatives to working for DRC, however, it should be noted that I was sub-contracted to another company, as mostly the lone DRC employee and most/but not all of my interaction with DRC was by phone or internet.

    Advice to Management

    None. In retrospect, I regret my decision to leave the company. My choice at the time though was to relocate which I didn't wish to do. A month later the sequester impacted my job search. A position on a project that I had anticipated stepping into was canceled.
