    Former Employee - Web Developer in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay
    Don't care what you're doing as long as you do your job
    Grunt-level jobs could be, and in some cases of inventive coworkers, were, done by a thirty-line script

    Cons

    Massively overhired and overpaid people for too little work-- squandered resources led to destruction of entire department a few months later
    Advertised as contract-to-hire, no warning when contract ended that this was no longer the case

    Former Employee - Systems Engineer in Colorado Springs, CO

    I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company got me up and running with all the supplies, software, computer and permissions I needed within a week of starting, nice break room, could make your own hours as long as you completed your work & did the minimum 40 hrs per week

    Cons

    Very poor communication, if you weren't in management you knew there were secret meetings going on that you were not invited to, unrealistic deadlines, management turned a blind eye to any process improvements, lots of layoffs and not many potential contracts in the pipeline, good employees left, bad managers stayed on??? No training or opportunity to change positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with employees, communicate, say No to unrealistic deadlines - giving a crappy product on-schedule means nothing, improve image to win new contracts
