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

    Pros

    Brilliant, talented, hard-working team; fast-paced environment; good, competitive, pay and benefits package (health, dental, PTO, etc.); somewhat flexible work schedule (dependent on project assigned), snacks in the kitchen; and holiday parties

    Cons

    Challenges are the typical challenges of working in an IT environment- tight deadlines on some projects that require longer hours for employees; some demanding customers etc. Nothing out of the ordinary if you are used to working in IT. Mid-level and high-level management handle these challenges well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Great flexibility of work and life schedule. Overtime is available on most projects. Can work from home form time to time as well

    Cons

    Over time when it is available is expected and 70+ hour weeks do happen. Regular straight pay over time is something but ok could be better

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff and pay the staff you have with what’s par for the area

    Nice building, steady work for FT positions.

    Add some diversity to the staff to try to bring fresh perspectives in unification and morale boosting.
