    Wonderful department to work for. CTE office always open for discussion and advise. Also had a toolbox meeting each week in regards to safety issues where we could also discuss other topics as well.

    It was also a good opportunity to meet the client as well as the vendor.

    I worked at KBR full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    they offer alternate work arrangement

    Cons

    the IT department is very Silo-ed, if you work in IT, you will be limited to what your group does, no chance to expand to other areas, also company is growing by acquiring new companies all the time which in turn means lay-offs

    Advice to Management

    stop lying to the employees, don't come visit with the employees and tell everybody no lays-offs then turn around and cut the work force
