Foreign Currency Exchange Accountant (Former Employee), Houston, TXDecember 26, 2014
This is a very dry work place environment. Management has the "Good Ol Boy" culture many have been with the company for 20 - 30 years and dont like change.

Opportunities for growth are limited and are only available for those who have been there for 7+ years.

electrical designer (Current Employee), Newark DelawareDecember 12, 2014
Pros: not much unless you consider at least 6 months of work until layoff
Cons: tempers, layoffs, mismanagement, typical northeast prejudices
This company has been run the same since it was Allstates design and development company. You will sign an agreement form not to seek lawsuit against the company. The Italian men run the company the Italian women run the administration. The black men can climb only up to mid management, black women and the rest of the mix of diversity is either contract or limited climability up the ladder. Rudeness, arrogance, short tempers and cussing throughout the daily office and northeast dumbness prevail. They get you in, give you work, when they done with you get a layoff. Same thing each year like 2008 layoff. Name change to absorb bad reputation. Kbr Houston hardly talks about the Delaware office. Newark de employs 4 states of people in this lil office at university plaza. Some temps get high pay some don't. Your overall skills don't mean much and isn't needed to do the project work. If you kiss butt, it won't amount to much despite many do. You will work for aholes but as contractor. Remember this is a job and nothing more at this kbr office site.

Working in company KBR would mark as the brightest point in my professional working life
Food Service Lead (Former Employee), Talill T-1, Al Nasiriah, IraqNovember 12, 2014
The beginning of my work with KBR was in Croatia when the KBR was called Brown & Root, where I started from Second Cook and after was promoted to Head Cook. We worked in Slavonski Brod and several operations in the Port of City Rijeka. There, I gained first experience in Food Service. Going in Iraq, I worked in Basra, Camp Harper T-5 where I had a great honor by supportting special forces and perform everyday tasks in the kitchen, Dining Room, Pot Wash, Salad Bar. Here I gained a lot of experience that I will later successfully transferred to workers in Food Service at Camp Tallil T -1, DFAC Warrior. The only difficulty in this business was separation from my family and a great joy to work with such professionals in their work and admire the organization of work in such a hostile environment in the heart of the Arabian Desert.
