Good work environment and everyone maintains professionalism. Safety is priority during every task. No tasks is more than important than jeopardizing anyone’s safety.

I gained a lot of experience at KBR
KBR away from HQ offered a great compensation but did not feel as a secure opportunity.

Slow to no advancement

Despite the long hours, the time was enjoyable and went fast because of the amount of work.

Management within the department was unprofessional.
Pros
pay and experience
Cons
no days off

12 hours a day, some days you work hard some you don't

The main thing is that is out of the states and far from home, if your okay with that then you will fit right in.


Some bosses are good and some are not, but that is everywhere your going to go.

I have had the privilege and honor to be working with some great Veterans and civilians within KBR community in Kuwait and IRAQ. It has been my experience, that if you work hard and don't cause any problems and or get into any arguments, everything will be just fine. I love my job, and have great respect for the people that I work with and for. My supervisor is absolutely fair in making all decisions.
Pros
Great Benefits.
Cons
Just don't let the small stuff get to you..

I took this job thinking that it was the best avenue for my family and me. The first year of working wasn't bad, but it was as if I had went from a structured life in the military to a holding group of adult children that knew nothing more than that of adultery and ignorance. Most were prior military, and that's a bit shocking because the ones that were in leadership positions didn't seem to know or care what they were doing...as long as they were getting paid. This company didn't do very good background checks or verify hiring information for numerous people. They covered up a lot of mistakes and wasted a lot of money. They had so many policies in place and were only worried that people knew what the policies were, not that they followed them. It would be hypocritical if they did hold people to the policies, because the leadership themselves weren't doing it. This is a major business that takes tax payers dollars from the government and does the minimum only to spread their company as far as possible across the globe. They break international laws and get the government to pay for their mistakes.
Pros
It's a place where non-qualified individuals can get a job
Cons
Lack of professionalism, lack of direction at the working level, too many unknowns

KBR is a decent company to work for. The pay is higher than average. The management is below average. They micro manage way too much. Benefits are good.

The pay was horrible. The personnel that was hired had no clue how to do the job and when it was time to work they would disappear or find an excuse not to work.
