    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at KBR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    9/80 schedule, insurance relatively low cost, subsidize in metro or free parking

    Cons

    No Holidays (including national holiday), no bonus, no raise in 2 years

    Advice to Management

    Employees are assets to company but no raise in 2 years shows the company doesn't appreciate/respect its assets. Although the current market is not as good as in the past but we need to know the plan forward. If this situation continues, I am afraid many of us will leave even we are in the middle of projects.

    Always make sure every employee is legally qualified in their craft and sufficiently capable.
