KBR was formerly known as Kellogg Brown & Root, and was also formerly a subsidiary of Halliburton. The company operates in 40 countries and offers services to customers in more than 70 countries. Businesses include Technology & Consulting, Engineering & Construction, and Government Services. KBR has a long history of working with the military, from World War II to the Iraq War. It also recently launched a veteran training program at Fort Polk Army Base, arming soldiers with knowledge in the pipefitting trade.
KBR has a 9/80 alternate work week, where employees work nine hours a day with every other Friday off, and workers seem to like this schedule. Employees at KBR also like the "friendly work environment, competitive salary, and good benefits" at the company. Some find that "executive management" is "uninformed" and "too wedded to 'the KBR way,'" but many agree that the company offers "new experiences and the opportunity to work in different countries around the world." – less
