    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    good vacation and 48 hours for sick leave

    Cons

    supervisors will lie to make the manager to make their numbers, supervisor will make his people work in other areas for their buddies and to make management happy, no thanks for doing a good job, was told I would be able to advance to management when I grad from college with degree, this was a lie, only people that advance are the ones that are yes boys for the management. supervisors will not listen to people that know more about how to do things the right way.

    Advice to Management

    get supervisors that know something and are not puppets for the managers, hope that another company will get the did coming up and then replace the managers and supervisors with better ones, the CEO does not know what really goes on at this location (Blount Island) was told only what the management here told him and what they wanted to tell him
