Hey bro. My record level vectrus job offer is now on hold thanks to biden policies. Any follow up as to the best competing contractors comment you made? KBR still top tier? Will return the favor thanks!0 ·April 25
LordQarlynHey bro. Where was this job to, Afghanistan? If so, I probably can't help for another Afghan job for obvious reasons. That said, Vectrus does have openings around the Middle East, and Iraq should still be open. I am assuming you are looking for overseas preferably deployed assignments. Iraq is still on the table, and will probably have a contingent US and NATO presence for at least a couple more years.
Also, General Dynamics IT (GDIT) is a good employer, they have several contracts in Kuwait and around the Middle East, and pay better than Vectrus, and you are an actual employee, meaning your employment is not tied to a contract. I mention ME because those places the employers tend to provide housing and transportation for the employees, as compared to Europe and Far East Asia jobs.
SAIC, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and L3Harris also have good postings in the ME. Boeing and Northrup Grumman don't have as big DoD footprint in the ME as the others, but do have foreign military sales contract jobs here and thanks to ITAR requirements, a lot of them must go to US citizens, and Boeing has a significant commercial aircraft presence here too.
Smaller but noteworthy DoD companies here include Leidos, BAE Systems, Booz Allen Hamilton, and CACI International
KBR is covering mostly NORTHCOM, and Afghanistan, for now. Vectrus is the LOGCAP contractor for the Middle East. PAE is however handling Department of State LOGCAP type contract in DoS facilities in Iraq. These contracts do have IT positions, but most are given to non US citizens.
