    Pros

    The position was very hands off so it allowed for me to create my own solutions to problems.

    Cons

    It was online due to COVID so as my first experience working, it wasn't that much fun.

    Decent Job But a Lack of Ethics at the Top

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits with good work flexibility. Does reimburse training but you have to pay for it upfront first.

    Cons

    KBR (known as "Burn and Loot" in activist circles) was once a part of Halliburton and was involved with *many* scandals involving Iraq War contracting, Iraqi civilian deaths, and corruption during the Bush years. And before it was a part of Halliburton was involved with more military contracting corruption dating all the way back to Vietnam (yes this company unironically contracted out to Blackwater for security services). If I wasn't transferred over to this group during a federal contracting re-compete I wouldn't work for it as too many of its lines of business are simply moral hazards. I won't even touch its stock options plan for that reason (does stock inflation due to US wars in developing countries sound good to you?). The job I'm working at now doesn't involve this unethical stuff, but KBR is probably the closest thing to Weyland-Yutani (evil corporation in the "Alien" movies) that you can get in real life. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the individual job I'm working at right now (as I'm helping build a public service) but KBR is like a parody of an evil megacorporation. Even DC politicians and the Pentagon can't stand them. But that's what you get when you have a federal contracting re-compete during the Trump years. And the sad/funny thing is that this military contracting juggernaut *STILL* has subpar HR software and services. Just silly.
