    I worked at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, compensation is decent, good work-life , no personal growth

    Cons

    Low employee moral, no raises in several years..at least let employees wear jeans for moral, leadership is old school, benefits USED to be good, not anymore. Office culture is boring compared to new trendier companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on employee moral with little things that go a long way.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    After April 2013 working in IT got 75% better. A lot of improvements have been made within the IT department as a whole and there are good IT managers willing to give you a chance to move up if you work hard. Training is okay. Most of the training I've gotten to advance my career has been done on my own initiative, at my own expense, and on my own time. There is a lot of opportunity to learn and get experience with a wide spectrum of technologies. Not a lot of perks company wise that I can think of.

    Cons

    As far as job security, it's only good when there's a major war going on.

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Mentors
    Opportunities to grow and advance in your career.
    Educational/tuition reimbursement opportunities.
    Set policies and procedures set in place for almost anything (I didn't realize how valuable this was until I worked for a company with no policies/procedures).
    Great Benefits

    Cons

    Work/life balance - at times I was working 70-80 hours per week, on-call and expected to be available 24/7.
    Some favoritism
    Some people in management positions did not deserve them or do a good job in them, making it more difficult for their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I feel like this is a good company to work for, but a lot of that has to do with the department and people that you work with/for. I believe that it opened many doors for me and taught me so much.

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work. They have good ethics and training programs for employees. I would go back to work for this company under the right managers.

    Cons

    Management sometimes does not get all the information needed to make decisions. In some instances management takes the word of others instead of coming to their own conclusions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should screen managers and offer classes on management to managers as to how to communicate more effectively.

    Current Employee - IT Manager in Fort Worth, TX

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Information Technology department is constantly working toward a standards-based ITIL compliant process structure, which means that IT personnel are able to better control the pace of problem response, and prioritzie work more effectively. Additionally, I have never been anywhere where I was able to steer my own development quite as much as I've been able to do at DI.

    Cons

    The Alliance location isn't particularly well managed from a work-space considerations standpoint. Over-crowding, too little parking, and ever-decreasing cubicle spaces are a chronic problem with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the crowding problems. Make Change Management in IT a little more user-friendly. Don't require documentation that isn't necessary, or doesn't make sense to the Change process. Improve documentiaton overall, especially in the CI aspect of the CMDB.
