Kratos did not deserve the tribulations after Obama was elected
Web Developer (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – July 11, 2012
Very customer focused company. Successor to Haverstick Consulting and DTI Associates. Had opportunity to grow under DTI and Haverstick but my job role stagnated to low level duties at Kratos. Management did not encourage skills growth or use of training program, employee had to do that him/herself. Very good management at beginning as DTI and Haverstick, but I could have used more encouragement to grow skills, even as simple as buying Ben Forta's ColdFusion books and reading them.
customer and employee focused
tries to avoid employee training, management in my group was poor, retention of staff poor compared to caci
Very supportive of employees allowing freedom for growth and development
Logistic Manager Team Leader (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – April 7, 2017
They gave each employee the freedom to lead and make decisions in supporting their customer. They offered great incentives to the employees which made the employee more willing to remain with the company and give 100%.
Horrible place to work, upper management is unprofessional, arrogant, horrific
Administrator (Current Employee) – Fair Lawn, New Jersey – August 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.
Interesting work, once you get through the office politics.
Engineering (Former Employee) – Roseville, Ca – August 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.
Exciting technology, ownership of work, hand-on work, travel to exotic places
Travel to exotic places (-:, long hours at times, often short-staffed
Field Service Representative III (Former Employee) – Fair Lawn, NJ – July 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.
Poor supervision by service manager at best, she was rude in general.
Test Technician II (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 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.
regular full time position
upper management says there will be layoffs every 90 days if no contracts come in.
IT Program Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 21, 2012
The company changed ownership several times during my time with them. Each time there were executive changes it resulted in reorganization of the work groups which caused confusion and miscommunication due to process and procedure changes.
Analyst (Current Employee) – Fort Gordon, GA – August 4, 2012
Kratos is by far the most professional and well structured defense contractor that I have come in contact with of had worked for previously. Kratos is family friendly and has good core values and ethics. I am proud to work for this company and intend to spend many more years with the growing corporation.
