I have been working at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great professional development experiences. Lots of growth opportunities where I was at. Had good mentors and coaches during the growth years.

Cons

Lots of layoffs recently. Leadership of business unit has gone downhill because of key leaders no longer with company. Too many acquisitions coupled with the competitive, low-bid wins contract environment, has made company growth stagnant.

    I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions as a contractor (Less than a 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
