    Great Company, Local Management Needs Work

    Mentor (Current Employee) Kabul (Afghanistan)

    ProsVery Good salaries, excellent people, professional company

    ConsLocal Program Managers and Deputy Program Managers seem to believe they are the primary focus and SOW earners are the supporting players. Usually the best logistics, support items, housing etc goes to the PMO and staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop using previous rank as a factor in hiring for leadership positions. Remember that the PMO and staff are supporting the SOW earners, not the other way around.

    Very disappointed with the there process at DIFZ, if your a US citizen

    Procurement Analyst (Current Employee) Kabul (Afghanistan)

    ProsA great opportunity to develop work in different areas of the company

    ConsManagement needs more leadership skills and people skills before making judgement calls on a business/personal matters.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to be more aware of the policy and procedures they put in place for the company and employees not just a certain race or group of people. Management needs to be aware of the political games of there Managers they have on the ground instead of investigating the matter on there own.

    A very good company to work for.

    Aircraft Mechanic (Current Employee) Frankfurt, Brandenburg (Germany)

    ProsDynCorp has limitless opportunities' to advance and become a team. DynCorp has many good guidelines and policies that keep in line with current mandatory procedures within the aviation community. Lots of good folks to work with at lower level maintenance.

    ConsManagement most of the time seems to pick out younger inexperience folks to run maintenance of which they know little about. Although companies need to have a certain amount of younger workers with good ideals these folks need to have a certain amount of mentor ship with more experience and expertise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet more experience workers run the day to day business of good company practices while offering incentives to mentor and teach younger workers to carry on the good name of the company and ensure each and everyone of us understands what the company is all about.
