I would recommend friend or family to work there. Most of their work is contract based, so as long as the contracts are rolling in - life is good.

Horrible place to work, upper management is unprofessional, arrogant, horrific
Administrator (Current Employee) –  Fair Lawn, New JerseyAugust 23, 2014
The employees are back stabbers, phonies, and liars. You don't want to work in this kind of environment. Don't waste your time and effort applying for any job at Kratos, the management at the local level and corporate level are very unprofessional.
Pros
none

Interesting work, once you get through the office politics.
Engineering (Former Employee) –  Roseville, CaAugust 19, 2014
Exciting product (high performance aerial drones), but there is a good deal of office politics and personality conflict to deal with at the workplace. Deployments to support operations with various customers can be long and arduous, typically to austere places, but there is nothing like pulling off a successful flight to boost your job satisfaction. The wide variety of customers (domestic and international) make for interesting interfaces and travel opportunity, but can make things challenging as well. Overall, not a bad place to work if you can keep up with the pace and deliver.
Pros
Exciting technology, ownership of work, hand-on work, travel to exotic places
Cons
Travel to exotic places (-:, long hours at times, often short-staffed

Not Too Bad
Field Service Representative III (Former Employee) –  Fair Lawn, NJJuly 5, 2013
I was only there a for a brief period of time, however, my co-workers were pretty solid. Management could use some classes in professionalism and speaking to their employees with more respect. Also pay could have been better but the work load was adequate. Generally a good experience minus the service manager.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
Poor supervision by service manager at best, she was rude in general.

Workload is adequate.
Test Technician II (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLJanuary 31, 2013
With more organization and communication this company can grow. The morale is low because when Kratos loses a bid on contract they will have to do another layoff. This is happening in 90 day intervals. I have learned a lot since being hired.
Pros
regular full time position
Cons
upper management says there will be layoffs every 90 days if no contracts come in.
