I worked at KBR as a contractor for more than 5 years

Pros

They take great care of their people, always pay on time, have an excellent support structure. When I worked for them, we always had the best living arrangements possible.

Cons

Not always the best paying, tons of paperwork.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give managers the authority to fire people. I worked on the LCIII contract where Managers held all the responsibility for their department but were not given the ability to outright fire people. The way that the HR process was, meaning that the only path a Manager had was to counsel an employee, and having to do this multiple times, before HR would recommend them to be fired, and if an employee was counseled, they couldn't apply for a different job within KBR for 120 days, because of this, it forces Managers to put up with substandard employees in hopes that they move on on their own.

    I worked at KBR as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the best point about KBR:
    1: It is a mature company with a lot of experience in projects worldwide
    2. They have their own SOP which is superb and a very experienced work force.
    3. They provide community for fresh and early engineers to learn from the experienced ones.

    Cons

    1. As it is a large industry, contributions to projects are small in the initial years.
    2. As it is a EPC company, it is projects based, hence sometimes there are lean periods of work.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
