    Former Employee - Quality Supervisor in Fort Worth, TX

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My direct report and management team were professional and very team oriented. Corporate seems intent on building a company built on true professionalism and rooting out the "buddy system" systemic in overseas contracting.

    My experience with the company was overall very positive

    Cons

    Many departments lacked continuous improvement input from their front line personnel. Many of my friends from other departments experienced a far courser work life from their senior management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More emphasis on education, experience, skill, aptitude, and attitude during hiring.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are opportunities for advancement if you are ambitious, smart and willing to work hard. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Government contractors experienced massive growth during the Bush years and now the cycle has turned. Currently in 2014 this is a very challenged sector with downsizing occurring on an ongoing basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Information and knowledge is very compartmentalized and difficult to obtain, creating an inefficient work environment and often inconsistent results. A greater emphasis should be placed on leveraging the knowledge of SMEs who can greatly reduce the learning curve for more inexperienced or temporary staff.

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

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Limited 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 ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your current people rather than bringing on new VPs.

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    - You can make a lot of money, if you are at the management levels
    - The people, who are not in management, are very fun to be around
    - Great location

    Cons

    - Managers are entrenched in their positions for years
    - The company doesn't value their employees like most large companies
    - It's a contracts business and you take the ups and downs with it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at other companies and see how low your reputation is comparatively, with regards to employee satisfaction.

    Former Employee - Security  in  Fort Worth, TX
    Former Employee - Security in Fort Worth, TX

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Truly dedicated employees. 401k is the best. Medical benefits ok but expensive and lacking choices. Great missions.

    Cons

    Cut-throat management. High turnover in security & IT. Phony social contract from management. Lots of unethical management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put ethics above your precious six-sigma. Take a good look at upper management. Shift focus from "squeezing ever drop of blood you can from a turnip" to "serious national security." Know this: When the employment market shifts from employer's market to employee's market, your company is in some serious trouble.
