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

    Pros

    The New leadership is much more professional, trustworthy, and focused. While the company has challenges, it feels like we have actual leadership now. The prior management was largely focused on friendships with each other, not business, and the results show the damage -- the only people hired or that prospered were friends of the CEO-- now, merit and competence seems to count. the new management is much, much better.

    Cons

    The damage from prior management will take months, if not years, to reverse. Over the past 2 years, the company was eroded-- it will take time to overcome the prior leadership dysfunction. that said, I am confident that it will be turned around.

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor (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.

    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.

    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.
