    Excelent benefits, Hectic work pace

    Pros

    The pay and benefits make sense

    Cons

    Hectic work flow, everyone is triple booked on projects and the older folks don't have time to mentor the younger engineers. It's a double edged sword because these are some of the smartest engineers on the planet but its a competition to get their time

    Great Company, Solid Culture

    Pros

    Management is very invested in developing people and retention. There is a culture of avoiding micromanagement and taking care of your own. They made a big push 5-10 years ago to hire more young people, and especially women, which has been fairly successful, and most of the account executives seem behind this initiative. Great benefits, and my supervisors have always been supportive if I came to them with client related issues.

    Cons

    Like any DoD contractor, results may vary depending on your client. As we all know, some clients are more difficult than others, KBR was supportive as much as they could be, but sometimes managing internal issues on the client side can be a royal pain.

    Pros

    "We Value Our People" isn't just something on a chart. I have seen countless examples of the company focusing on their employees and making real changes to improve the lives of their employees and families. KBR recognizes that their employees matter and puts actions in place showing they actually care.
