Senior Technical Advisor (Former Employee) – Newark, DE – January 9, 2018
I am an experienced engineer and was a salaried employee. Work at times was stressful. I did not like the extra layers of reviews that made work unproductive. KBR did help out with short term disability when I was out with a sudden illness. Unfortunately work in my office got slow and since everyone has to be billable to a client, I was laid off.
There is not cooperative work between many of the employers. Every one is looking how to get rid off the work load and smartly tried to delegate to others when the others are not responsible to perform the job. In general no team work.
Good engineering company with interesting projects in oil and gas
Principal Technical Professional (Former Employee) – Newark, DE – January 4, 2018
I've worked at KBR twice as a contractor, and I've enjoyed it both times. Deadlines were usually reasonable and management is very supportive in getting the job done right the first time. I would have loved to stay longer but there was a slowdown in project activity and I was laid after both my assignments.
Friendly people, good work life balance.
Not much opportunity for contractors to become direct employees.
HSE Manager, Kellogg Brown and Root (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 4, 2018
KBR was a straight forward company that provided me the opportunity to work OCONUS on several military bases in Iraq, Afghanistan and Bahrain. The company provided opportunities for advancement and had an outstanding safety driven management focus for its employees.
