Salary is competitive, benefits are less so. Many incredibly smart and dedicated people work here, and you'll rub elbows with people with interesting, unique histories and jobs.
Leadership prioritizes government satisfaction over everything, at the detriment of their employees. They'll take the "customer's" side 100% of the time and throw the employee under the bus. Keeping up appearances and cozy relationships mean more to KBR than supporting their actual employees, addressing inefficiencies, or having the integrity and courage to tell entrenched federal civil servants something they don't want to hear. KNR has poor business ethics, wasteful and bloated in middle and upper management. They put on a good show, but the truth is they'll do just about anything to keep the federal pork rolling in. Hiring practices are best described as "catch and release." I was told several outright lies by a hiring manager and HR that convinced me to leave a secure job, and was laid off months later at their financial whim (a situation they also told me several lies regarding). They don't care and don't see front line employees as humans deserving of security and support -- just disposable things to be used then thrown out. It's a great gravy train if you're an overpaid, director-level professional schmoozer. If you're an average worker at KBR, keep your resume fresh and don't ignore recruiter calls. You may need them sooner than you think.5

Work from home. Equipment provided. good work / family balance.
working from home I believe people lose themselves or become insecure with job stability. You have to pull teeth to get answers, you have so many different people you have to go throught before a actual response is given. Very miss leading on the other end when your being hired in.1
