+AWW/AWS days (9/80 schedule)
+Supportive work environment - many of my closest friends are ones I worked for/with over the years
+Lots of free food as catering is everywhere and fun company events
+Paid parking and good company benefits - medical, dental, flex spending etc.

Cons

-Extensive travel, depending on what department you are in and your role
-Lay offs depending on the economy/market and projects
-Towards the end of my years at KBR, it seemed like revenues were decreasing and morale was low

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

    Pros

    There are a multitude of opportunities available at KBR. If you are willing to relocate, working on a project can be very profitable.

    Cons

    There are very few female role models in a position of power at KBR save for Sue Carter, CFO.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify management

    I worked at KBR as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people who I worked with. My boss was thoughtful and always available to help out. Good place to get some experience with my engineering degree straight out of college.

    Cons

    Because of my intro level role I got stuck doing a lot of busy work that others didn't want to do. I didn't see many opportunities for growth in my role, so went looking elsewhere. Seemed to be more a function of my specific role than the company itself, however.
