A good company that went downhill due to mismanagement.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Winter Park, FL (US)

I have been working at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions

ProsUp until a few years ago everyone worked as a team. Communication was good and you felt like you were part of a family.

ConsTo get a promotion, you had to be a complete screw up.
Loyalty and hard work was never recognized.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart from scratch and get rid of all DEI management.
The company is top heavy in management and high salaries.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
