    I worked at KBR (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good company to work for. I worked in one of their projects in Iraq and that was a very one experience for. I'll recommend KBR to anyone.

    Cons

    Not much negative to say about the company or the upper management. the only thing is that some of the management get those positions because of a friend and a friend of a friend even if they are not qualify

    Advice to Management

    need to put a system in place where you can start molding the next supervisor or manager to takeover a department once the manager move up or leave the company instead of rushing and bringing someone that is not familiar with the operation of such department
