    I worked at KBR full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Worked for MW Kellogg side of KBR for 29 years off & on with good pay, great benefits and a no-nonsense knowledgeable and experience personnel who cared for the people, cared for the quality work at a safe pace. Great to be part of the company until restructuring.

    Cons

    KBR has been restructured since 2014, replacing knowledgable and experienced "old guys" with less experienced young fella's. This was there down fall, letting the experienced and knowledgabls old hands go and hired the new college "know-it-alls". The biggest mistake is allowing other companies to 'steal' KBR's technology in engineering and allowing unethical behavior within its ranks resulting in loss revenue and... clients.

    Advice to Management

    Retain to what you have, rehire the younger old guys to support the young and listen to past failures and what works and what doesn't. Why beat your brow with new technology that may have the same results with old technology and less the costs. Cutting corners will always cost more in injuries, time and material. Hasn't anyone learned from this yet? Remove the Red Tape and eliminate unneccessary duble & triplicate... paperwork including the overrated environmental regulations and the overall restriction in safety. This is another big concern why clients are turning away from new construction and relying onto what they have. Cost too much to build.
