    Strong company with room to grow and improve on an already solid foundation.

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Newport, DE (US)

    ProsLarge company with a wide reach of territory and products. Solid leadership in many areas.

    ConsFor those who do not enjoy the corporate style of business, Kratos may not be the best fit. As the company continues to grow, leadership has done a lot to standardize processes across the board, and there is much more of a large corporation feel than a small business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Just another government contracting firm without a soul.

    Computer Engineer (Former Employee)

    Overall positive learning experience, but unfortunately, things have gotten worse with the economy

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Diego, CA (US)

    ProsGreat professional development experiences. Lots of growth opportunities where I was at. Had good mentors and coaches during the growth years.

    ConsLots of layoffs recently. Leadership of business unit has gone downhill because of key leaders no longer with company. Too many acquisitions coupled with the competitive, low-bid wins contract environment, has made company growth stagnant.

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

    Government subcontracting is a strange world

    Web Developer (Former Employee) San Diego, CA (US)

    ProsGreat pay
    Don't care what you're doing as long as you do your job
    Grunt-level jobs could be, and in some cases of inventive coworkers, were, done by a thirty-line script

    ConsMassively overhired and overpaid people for too little work-- squandered resources led to destruction of entire department a few months later
    Advertised as contract-to-hire, no warning when contract ended that this was no longer the case

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
