Iraq and Afghanistan
I worked for KBR on several contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan. I thought the management was terrible, the entire operation was pathetic, but it paid well working in a war zone. In the beginning they were ok, but then they started hiring people from all over the world and unqualified people from the US that somehow obtained secret clearance which used to be somewhat difficult to get. Once they started handing out clearances to anyone the entire company went down the tubes in Iraq and Afghanistan. Everyone knew you just had to play the game to keep your job. What a waste!
Administrative Specialist | Bethesda, MD | Oct 17, 2019
I worked in Bethesda Maryland for no less than 50 hours per week. Most people I worked with everyday were very nice professional people. My immediate manager was great. I was promoted 6 times and voted MVP twice. The only problem I ever had that was the General Manager. He was a Baptist preacher from Texas who could not accept "most" employees. I never imagined that no matter how well I did my job would not matter. Yet, what I learned inspired me to return to college and earn several degrees. I just hope I have the opportunity to be only judged on my professionalism. I'm sure there are better places to work.

Flexible work environment with great camaraderie!
Our office provides great support for each and allows the group to walk or take laps around the parking lot. Very safety conscience and the stress level is very low. It has shown to provide quality work from each and every employee ranging for the front desk clerk to management. I think pay rate for some job titles should be higher or meet the average pay rate or competitive with other similar companies. I guess you can say the work environment substitutes for the lack in pay. Happy to work here otherwise.

After many years the company allowed me to fulfill my expectations in a career. The learning curves were acceptable and worth well. The management teams were based on exceptional project experience.
ProsAbility to move throughout the company in numerous locations.

Pretty good company to work for
I have been with this company for a few years before, KBR. The workplace is family oreinted. I greatly appreciate working w/this team. We make a big difference in the background of Government contracts. We have the smartest Engineers and IT Staff. We have made many organizational changes to better the work we provide to the Gov. We are on the right path to success!

Working as a Civil Engineer in onshore environment is a good one. Most of my experience has always been offshore. Now working with KBR made me to have both knowledge both in offshore and onshore.
So it's a plus.

Old School culture. Difficult to get things moving.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the people around me. However we experienced multiple layoffs and they always occurred around the Holidays.
