    I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Agreesive and forward thinking in some of their groups.

    Cons

    Some divisions are not innovative and have short sighted goals that affect long term growth. Some of the companies they have aquired are top heavy in the management ranks and do not operate efficiently. (Too Many Cooks Syndrome)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at leaning up your organization. Look at what talent you have at executive and management levels and cut the redundencies.

    I have been working at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Really can't think of any

    Cons

    Not competitive wages. Little if any employee support from management. I worked at a remote location (not a Kratos facility) but was only a few miles from the regional Kratos headquarters. The manager responsible for the contract I was on never contacted me via email and only visited the site once or twice per year.
