I have been working at KBR full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good level of Engineering Skills , support from immediate management , balanced profile of projects , Good in house software systems and procedures global network of contacts and support

Cons

Management in Houston is remote , junior and middle grade staff tend to be mostly contract based so difficult to develop new talent ,Short term targets

Advice to Management

Management KPI 's do not always align with Project KPI's .Maximising resources deployed on a project does not always equte with delivering projects on time and under budget .
Time difference Houston to Australia a is a handicap needs more devolved management

    I worked at KBR as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    paid on time, and a learning experience

    Cons

    the left hand did not know what the right hand was doing. The long hours wore people down. The quality of work was not up to par. You had people making 12-15 thousand dollars a month not even bothering to show up to work.

    Advice to Management

    Discipline!!, when someone was disciplined the company policy did not allow it. It cost too much to get new personnel into theater. Lateral movement was not allowed so they were moved to another camp and given a raise.
