    I worked at KBR

    Pros

    KBR is one of the most successful worldwide Industrial Engineering Constructions companies. I truly enjoyed being a part of such a strong and successful company which offered my excellent benefits, knowledge, experience and excellent pay. My supervisor was the Project Sr. HR Generalist, Nancy D. Fisher. I learned from her and walked away with experience and knowledge of the great Construction world. truly enjoyed the challenge and opportunity that was given to me.

    Cons

    If you don't like working long hours, this isn't for you. I loved the hours and time I spent working for KBR and the great Sr. HR Generalist, Nancy. D. Fisher who I worked side by side with as her assistant. I would do it all over again!!!!!

    I have been working at KBR full-time

    Pros

    Young engineers get the chance to work on major project designs and implementations within their discipline. There are decent mentors in some groups. Employees can put international company experience on their CV.

    Cons

    No long term future for moving up. The company is stacked with senior engineers which limits the abaility of new employees to move into more challenging roles. There are long hours and quite a bit of micro managing by supervision. There is not a good work life balance and many managers are clock watchers. Company seems to be going the wrong direction, so the long term future is questionable.
