I always supported the staff. Once I notice that one area of project was lacking progress. I immidiately went and talk to Sr Engineer to find out why he is not able to complete work as per schedule. He indicated that he does not have multivender quote for recomendation. I talk to procurement department and found out that perticular item was single source bid. I informed the engineer and he close that deliverable. It was possible because information was there and just one need to look for it.

Pros and Cons
Free lunch and Learn once a week, Free whole day picnic organized by Depat wher spouse attended
Work location was downtown so commuting was problem. Organization except you to work 8+ hours

Worked for C-5 Chief Engineer and his Section Supervisors to evaluate work progression of engineers and staff. Team work to improve performance was excellent. Provided research and analysis for cost of engineering services/parts obsolescence, etc. Provided multiple performance, cost and budget charts utilizing Microsoft products. Provided team meetings utilizing Microsoft Teams, etc. KBR provides employees with excellent team and skill training programs, etc. Hard work does not go unnoticed! Everyone we worked with in C-5 were quick to support our efforts, as well as, theirs.

Pros and Cons
Excellent work ethics and employee support. Equal pay for salary. Most excellent 401K plan.
None that I remember except Work Day training software issues.
