I Cannot Share My Job and Maintain Anonymity (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA (US)

I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

Prosthe benefits were good. I don't have anything else good to say.

ConsMy department was run by people who didn't know what they were doing, and treated the people who DID know what they were doing poorly. Now, the people who did the work are laid off and the managers are still there. What could they be doing?

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat the worker bees like the assets they are, and don't let managers run amuck.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

More Interested In Acquisitions than compensation or training for Front-Line Employees!

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Washington, DC (US)

I have been working at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time for less than a year


Pros: Great front-line worker camaraderie and the ESOP is very competitive! Cons: Compared to other Defense Contractors such as SAIC, CACI the pay is very uncompetitive and it's obvious middle management has been mandated to cut training… Advice to Senior Management: Your Acquisition spree in lieu of taking care of your front-line workers will eventually come back to bite you! Trust me,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
