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."
