I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Great co-workers, decent pay, I wish I had more pros. Sorry

    Cons

    The general manager at the office I worked out of has no communication skills whatsoever and treats the employees like they are idiots.
    Many people have left recently and upper management fail to see that the general manager is causing the company to lose customers and employees.
    Its a miracle that the place is still in business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investigate why so many employees have left recently and perhaps assign a new general manager for one of your main offices....

    I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with great people, travel to really interesting sites.

    Cons

    Some of the people that are workers as mock managers are stuck in a military/college mentality with hazing and publicly chastising seen as a way for them to look better. Managers hid information and objectives, thus surprising the talent continuously. Most decisions were based on what they were told, and not what they observed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are laying off and 'firing' people that you shouldn't, and keeping people you shouldn't. Don't promote a new methodology to use every few months, it betrays your inexperience and lack of industry expertise/wisdom as to how to tell if something will/is working.
