A good company that went downhill due to mismanagement.

I have been working at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start from scratch and get rid of all DEI management.
The company is top heavy in management and high salaries.

    Pros

    It is in business still.

    Cons

    Company does not have experience with big projects and their operational budget is way too reduced. Thus, an insignificant variation in the schedule is taken as a catastrophe. Schedule is "the work philosophy."
    However, when you are on the third or fourth tier and the project demands to control the tiers bellow you, which by the way have much more experience and have a lot of time in rodeos as this; then a crisis door is permanently open. It is now a battle in two fronts (upper and lower tiers). Perhaps the schedule is crushed (intentionally or unintentionally), then Kratos cannot stand the pressure. Even worst, when the operational budget depends on the success or not of another project... If as it happened, that project fails, then the whole organization suffers.
