Kuwait locations are bad
Electrical Technician II Lead (Current Employee) –  Camp ArifjanSeptember 5, 2018
Working for this company in Kuwait has been the worst contract I have ever been a part of. I have worked contracting for 15 years. Everyone has low morale. Salary quotes from recruiters are not accurate. You will be paid much lower than they offer you due to hours being cut if there is a sand storm or bad weather. You are paid for 12 hours a day but you are gone from home 16 hours a day minimum. They don't give you time to eat your meals but preach safety. Your job is always under threat by your management team and leaders. I would not recommend this place to work for anyone. There is a huge turnover rate.
Pros
coworkers mostly are cool
Cons
Not enough time to eat meals, Lowest pay on Kuwait base, treated like cattle, 12 hours pay for 16 hour days, constant threat, rules change daily, unqualified managers

Dont Do it
AWRDS Analyst/LMP (Current Employee) –  KuwaitJune 28, 2018
This is a company with management that are pretty much rejects (fired) from other companies in the past and have formed a "click" and look out for each other. The security of your job is threatened on a weekly basis by management, very little pay, promotions are not done by what you know but who you know. Moral of the team is down but the push for more is stressed by management.
Pros
Its a Job, opportunity to network with others
Cons
Pay for DFAC, kuwait is expensive, "Wasta" in the management

Working for URS an AECOM company
Electronics Technician/M1A2 Abrams Tank Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Camp Arifjan, KuwaitApril 9, 2018
Frist off, my recruiter gave me the immpression that my base wage was much more than it was. She tried to lump in every little bit of time and "benefits" into the offer to inflate the numbers. Once I found that out, I continued to see this kind of lack of integrity and dishonesty for my short time with the company. The job was oversees, the host country work week was 6 days. Overtime was only time and a quarter. You weren't paid for all the time you were under the company's control. The company switched back and forth on host country and US policy which ever way benefited them. All the leadrrship and management had been in country for at a minimum of 8 yrs and they all keep each other in positions they had no business holding. Absolutely no work life balance. You were up and in a company shuttle between 5-5:30am and didn't return to your billeting until 8:30-9pm.Glad to be gone...
Pros

Cons
Compensation, work-life balance, management

Not a very well planned operation for helicoptor maintenance. The company was more reactionary to situations rather than planning for them.
Avionic, Electrical Technician II (Current Employee) –  Udairi, KuwaitAugust 11, 2012
Management was not prepared for the arrival of the technicians in country. As a result of this, myself and everyone else who arrived in country had from 7 days of wait time to begin work to as much as 18 days. When we finally arrived at our final destination in country the work was sparse. It appeared to us that it was more important to the company to have bodies on the ground than to have actual work for them to do. As a result of the poor planning and management of the contract the military was reluctant to give work to the teams in place to assist them in repairs.
The company violated numerous sections of the contracts with employees and constantly changed their answers to suit the situation at hand. Many employees went 3 or 4 weeks before finally receiving their pay. And it was less than what was agreed to in the contract when it did arrive.
Pros
they provided a van for traveling back and forth to work and chow.
Cons
pay was not as agreed to in the contract, it arrived late causing many employees to be late paying bills
