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.

    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.

    I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work with great people, travel to really interesting sites.

    Cons

    Some of the people that are workers as mock managers are stuck in a military/college mentality with hazing and publicly chastising seen as a way for them to look better. Managers hid information and objectives, thus surprising the talent continuously. Most decisions were based on what they were told, and not what they observed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are laying off and 'firing' people that you shouldn't, and keeping people you shouldn't. Don't promote a new methodology to use every few months, it betrays your inexperience and lack of industry expertise/wisdom as to how to tell if something will/is working.
