Minimal risk
Logistics Area Leader (Current Employee) –  Deer Valley, AZMarch 5, 2019
You will always have your job, however you will most likely never advance unless someone retires. Starting pay is great, but you will most likely have a merit freeze or a low percentage increase. You can sometimes work from home without much hassle, but are expected to be in office most days and they will track you work from home days like a carrot leading the horse. In summary it's just a job here, not a passion
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Minimal advancement

Overall a Great Place
Sr. Logistics Analyst SME (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALJanuary 8, 2019
Great place to work. The company stands behind their employees 100%. The local manager create a family like work environment. Work life balance is great. The biggest downside is the Health care benefits, but during this time all companies are about the money and have started reducing benefits to increase the companies bottom line and to be competitive in biding for contracts.
Pros
Work life balance
Cons
Health Care benefits are horrible

Tec. 3 (Former Employee) –  Hampton, VADecember 20, 2018
Wyle they offered a good pay benefit package excellent retirement program and insurance benefits as well as a relaxed working environment with a great future. I possibly would have continued working with them for a longer duration had they have not been doing management restructuring and offering early retirement for a majority of the employees that have been there for a long time.

Disappointed
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLNovember 14, 2018
While it may seem like a good place to work, especially those with a military background, there is very little to almost no advancement. There is no training to help you advance professionally or even any type of mentoring. Work days are long for exempt employees and you are expected to work and only get comp time. Very little opportunity for management to get any overtime pay. If you are not part of the inner circle you will not get the next step in management.

Global Asset Management Analyst Experienced (Current Employee) –  South Bend, INNovember 13, 2018
Days are generally stress free as objectives and plans are known in advance. Significant interaction with client personnel provides an opportunity to learn about their operations. Strong sense of teamwork among company and client personnel. People are encouraged to share new ideas. My position is mainly office based but have the opportunity to spend time on the shop floors and interact with personnel from all departments. People are friendly and willing to answer questions regarding their job functions.
Pros
Flexibility, work-life balance, learning environment
Cons

Great place to work
Flight test Aircrew (Current Employee) –  NAS PAtuxent RiverOctober 19, 2018
Have been working for Wyle before it became KBRwyle over 1 year ago. The transition was painless, and smooth. Am working at Pax River, and that location is somewhat isolated from the rest of the state, but the amenities around here, and housing are excellent.

As a military retiree I have access to TRICARE, and use the clinic on base, and Dr's out in time, which is great! Have access to Commissary and Exchange which is also great.

Company has good Stock Plan with Morgan Stanley, and an even better 401K with Vanguard. No complaints with either, and both perform very well.
Pros
Great work environment with like minded individuals in Flight Test
Cons
Location.

Company is ok to work for but there is room for improvement
Shipboard Supervisor (Current Employee) –  SaipanSeptember 25, 2018
Look at ways to minimize family separation time. Majority of the workers are retired military who have served and been separated from family. If you want to retain these type of individuals you have to either compensate them better or look at way to minimize family separation time.
Pros
Ability to traval see foreign countries.
Cons
Family seperation and time at sea

Maintenance Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLSeptember 14, 2018
I get the impression that management is jockeying for the one upsmanship. All the managers that I have met, tend to throw one another under the bus when given the opportunity. Trust factor is non existent.
Pros
Employed
Cons
Not many companies in this area pay this amount... Reason most people stay..

Material Handler/Order Filler (Former Employee) –  Anniston, AL 36201August 25, 2018
KBRWyle (Anniston) upper management (PM) is horrible. They don’t know what’s going on, on the floor. They have favorites (literally people who can say anything to them and they {upper management} will automatically believe). You have to bust your tail in order to have enough money to keep your head above water. Pay rate is EXTREMELY LOW for the type of workload that is done there. They have people who are making $5-$7 more (with no High School diploma) than with people with a college degree. There’s ABSOLUTELY NO growth in the company. The company here is mainly females with 3-4 males (including the supervisor), so the males are stretched thin. The overall of the company is just to much with little pay. The Benefits are TERRIBLE, and EXTREMELY to HIGH.
Pros
Flexible Schedule, No Micromanaging
Cons
Low Pay, High Workload, High Benefits, No trust
