I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions

Pros

The pay and benefits were good to excellent. At one time, there was a diversity of products to work on. Raises were decent.

Cons

Projects were mismanaged. People were just dumped into projects and expected to "hit the ground running" or they were dropped on the roadside. Projects were behind schedule and their configuration management was a complete mess.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Install people in management positions who encourage employees to excel and offer opportunities to improve their skill sets. Do not grow too fast, but don't shut the place down either. Reduce operating costs by renegotiating rental contracts for office space.

    A good company that went downhill due to mismanagement.

    I have been working at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions

    Pros

    Up until a few years ago everyone worked as a team. Communication was good and you felt like you were part of a family.

    Cons

    To get a promotion, you had to be a complete screw up.
    Loyalty and hard work was never recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start from scratch and get rid of all DEI management.
    The company is top heavy in management and high salaries.

    Large government contracts and a lot of oversight

    I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions

    Pros

    decent pay, flexible hours, decent onboarding, lots of like-minded colleagues, made good connections

    Cons

    because you are working on large government contracts, there's a lot of oversight, all work is tracked down to the minute, i didn't end up performing the job that I was hired to do. ended up doing data entry more than anything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do a better job bidding contracts so that it is not always feast and famine
