    Good learning experience and good money gained.

    Senior Recruiter (Former Employee)

    ProsGood money and experience gained.

    ConsCut throat Management. Very cold on how they lay you off after giving 100% and considered a top recruiter in the company. Watch you back with this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYes, its about the money but....the way you treat your employees it should not be a sweat shop and the good old boy system you have in place. Should be a real Team environment not the authoritarian management style.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Microcosm of a world of cultural contribution and service.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt has been my experience that there were a lot of good people working together that didn't mind getting their hands dirty for the good of the team, it was different at every FOB but there were enough positive people at each, to make a difference.

    ConsSadly, as the case with other large employers, top management is mostly unaware of the issues that first line supervisors report to their managers, or so it appears because when you request a particular enabler, it is because its value or use in the field has been recognized as a force multiplier at a cost that is minimal compared to it overall value.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be to the advantage of any organization to seek out the information that only those that are in contact with specific issues are aware of. It's sort of like a minor leak in your tires but instead of dealing with it in the present, it's put off until it becomes an issue that cannot be ignored. Usually, at the time that it's condition becomes a priority, something else has become just as important but now you have to split your resources to remedy both with little to no margin left to handle the daily requirements.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great company at times. The program / management team an employee has will either make you love or hate the company.

    Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsGood people, strong values, decent benefits, competitive pay, military / vet friendly, branching into commercial contracts in addition to government contracts.

    ConsLimited options for promotions and employee development. HR policies seem contradictory. Company owners have changed the way enterprise functions.. and it hasn't benefited the employees at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your current people rather than bringing on new VPs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    DynCorp was a great working experience for me, and I am thankful for the opportunity.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros-Great Work Environment
    - Friendly people
    - Nice flow that was in place for getting things taken care of.

    Cons-Communication was lacking
    - Had issues getting some approvals due to upper management being out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere could be more time spent in investing in your employees and making sure that the objective that you want to be achieved be communicated clearly and made known up front.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
