    I worked at KBR full-time

    Pros

    Very systematic and structured way of doing things in KBR. Staff (those who were around then) were top notch, and technically sound. Singapore office was a champion of Detailed Engineering for world class projects, with a presence of 30 years in Singapore.

    Cons

    Job security is market dependent, just like its competitors. Can be expected to submit deliverables on the last day of work despite being retrenched. Limited opportunities for young engineers to gain site / overseas exposure due to project requirements.

    Give more opportunities to the younger ones.
