Pros

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

Cons

Projects 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 Management

Install 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.

    Pros

    Kratos PSS is a good company for access control and CCTV integration. I worked there for 6 years and met and worked with some great people. The projects that I worked on were all over the country and were primarily for the USMC. As a veteran it was a pleasure to support our troops in a way that made a significant difference in their ability to perform realistic and meaningful training.

    Cons

    Kratos is a very large corporation and it is easy to get lost so far as corporate attention to its smaller branches. The PSS branch is a tight knit organization that has to subordinate itself to the corporate goals even if they do not promote branch growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take care of your people and they will take care of you. Do not ignore the lower management suggestions that can make a big difference in profitability.
