"Challenging, fulfilling, and an honor to serve our U.S. troops."

"I like working at KBR in the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program because of the complex mission of building bases and providing support for our U.S. troops."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"KBR is a great company to work for. Potential employees should have a good understanding of their job requirements and expect change once hired."

What don't you like about working at KBR?

"As with most companies, politics in the workplace is discouraging, but the lack of key personnel in critical positions was the biggest challenge."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Selection of candidates for key positions should be according to their skill sets and not their affiliation with organizations or current employees. A weak link in a key management position has a cascading downstream effect. Communication within management could also be improved to increase efficiency and effectiveness."

Posted 2 years ago in Houston, TX

What do you like about working at KBR?

"I enjoy my specific project. I have had the opportunity to use my creativity and knowledge to create a computer system like no other in our industry."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"It is a good place to make a decent wage and gather experience. Use it as a stepping stone to a rewarding career - somewhere else!"

What don't you like about working at KBR?

"The corporate culture, sub-par pay, and lack of respect by management to employees is unbearable. The structure here is such that only those with connections are promoted, while everyone is endlessly moved laterally. Management shows a clear disdain for subordinates and regards all employees as insignificant worker bees. People outside of management or without connections are treated with the same regard as a copier or computer. You are a resource, not a person. I have had several managers tell me, Everyone can be replaced."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would make sure my company had a culture which rewards talent, dedication, hard work, and results. People would rise in the ranks based on performance and the value brought to the company. In addition, I would dissolve the rampant nepotism that plagues KBR."
