I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Teams are collaborative and tightly run, projects are always on time, intelligent and caring managers

Cons

Freedom of creative design can be difficult since they follow templated design strategies, and very tight deadlines.

Advice to Management

Give everyone a voice, somehow, so each person feels heard and appreciated.

    I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and/or telecommute options depending on your job title. As one of the worker bees in the production department, I was able to work primarily from home as long as work was completed/turned-in on/before deadlines. When contract is "on", its a fast work environment with opportunities to build on skills not necessarily within your job description. Good project management system.

    Cons

    When a contract is getting to its' end, you'll find yourself with nothing to do more and more and you could be sitting on "overhead" for weeks until the next project ramped up. This seems to be the norm with most DoD contracting companies, but the wait in between projects became longer (more like months) as Kratos focused more on acquisitions. Instead, there is more of a competitive, low-bid wins contract environment which has lead to heavy layoffs.

    I have been working at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time (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.
