Never felt like an employee of the company but they did pay well and have nice benefits.

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) San Diego, CA (US)

ProsGood benefits including health care, dental and even free vision. 401K matching at 4.5% after being full vested was a bonus. Friendly employees and co-workers. Paid well, at least for my job as a government contractor. Free set of four Padres tickets every year for one game for all employees.

ConsLack of communication from the management. Provided no training that would have made me qualified for other positions within the company. No new work for current employees and many lay-offfs. The best employees tended to leave for other companies, leaving new people in positions such as HR and finance. Company stock at a all time low.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind more work in San Diego. Expand on current work instead of buying more small companies. Keep your employees more informed about the company. Don't tell employees how well the company is doing when the stock price says otherwise.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    More Interested In Acquisitions than compensation or training for Front-Line Employees!

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Washington, DC (US)

    I have been working at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time for less than a year


    Pros: Great front-line worker camaraderie and the ESOP is very competitive! Cons: Compared to other Defense Contractors such as SAIC, CACI the pay is very uncompetitive and it's obvious middle management has been mandated to cut training… Advice to Senior Management: Your Acquisition spree in lieu of taking care of your front-line workers will eventually come back to bite you! Trust me,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
