    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!

    Nice building, steady work for FT positions.

    Pros

    flexible boss, go with the flow environment, easy going and nice colleagues. People are nice, PTO and medical is average

    Cons

    no room for growth, sometimes will be expected to work long hours, don't care about you as an individual, only the company depending on the department.

    Advice to Management

    provide a more family friendly, caring environment. Have a better wok flow system between departments and more organization. Don't expect people to work until 3am when it could have been avoided.
