The old DEI Services

Electrical Engineer (Former Employee)
Winter Park, FL (US)

I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions

ProsThe pay and benefits were good to excellent. At one time, there was a diversity of products to work on. Raises were decent.

ConsProjects were mismanaged. People were just dumped into projects and expected to "hit the ground running" or they were dropped on the roadside. Projects were behind schedule and their configuration management was a complete mess.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstall people in management positions who encourage employees to excel and offer opportunities to improve their skill sets. Do not grow too fast, but don't shut the place down either. Reduce operating costs by renegotiating rental contracts for office space.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
