    I worked at KBR full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked for KBR in an Army contractor capacity for two years on two tours, one in Kuwait and another in Iraq. Everyone complained about the company all the time, but I didn't have a problem with my job. I just kept my head down, did my job, and left after a year with a big bank account.

    Cons

    There's the obvious bureaucracy problems, but you're going to have that any time you expand from nothing to tens of thousands of employees in a new theater within a few years. The only cons that I can think of were specific to that particular job, namely working in a war zone in the desert was not a fun place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize more activities for the employees.

    Pros

    Fair working conditions while working in a war zone.

    Cons

    DOD awards should only have Americans filling the top positions. Americans need work and it helps out our economy and not send our tax payer dollars to other countries. It should be written into DOD contracts using tax payer money to only hire Americans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and be more inclusive of the lower tier personal.
