Five Years of Opportunity and Exposure to Tier 1 Developers

Data Warehouse Engineer (Former Employee)
Springfield, VA (US)

I worked at Kratos Defense & Security Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

ProsOver the five years between 2006 - 2011, as an Engineer, I worked on 3 contracts and gain a lot of experience. My business manager was aggressive, fair and provided opportunity to shine and supported training funds for personal development. While at KRATOS, upper management did a great job with benefits (pay raises were fair in the beginning and then went flat in 2010 & 2011).

ConsKRATOS has gone through many growing pains and depending on your current manager and contract. Like many DOD contractors, you are only viable if you are billable. With all the acquisitions, the company has had a lot of turnover, but that happens in a growing company in DOD.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep growing, but do not lose sight of the value of your employees on-site with the client.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Keep your employees… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
