    I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Benefits and work/life balance are good, depending on what you are there for. If you are on contract as an actual worker, you will conform to the schedule of the work location, which means there is no office culture to speak of. If you are a manager or corporate employee, though, the office environment is nice.

    Cons

    Kratos has the same problems as other government contractors that rely on the government for funding, such as low-bid wars, contract issues, and sudden furloughs.

    "Kratos acquired my company, lost contracts, underbid contracts, and layoffs followed."

    I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Kratos upper management maintained a hands off approach to acquired companies, for the most part. Talented individuals working as a cohesive team produced great products and services.

    Cons

    Not much job security here. Few contracts were won, and those were underbid, placing excessive burdens on employees to do more with less. The prospect of decreased benefits caused many employees to leave, and layoffs thinned the herd further.

    Advice to Management

    A corporate reputation for quality cannot be maintained if quality employees are not retained.
