    HR

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

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

    ConsLow 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 Senior ManagementWork on employee moral with little things that go a long way.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I enjoy working here.

    Cisco Voice Engineer (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsAfter 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.

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

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

    Good first job where I gain lots of education and experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsGreat 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

    ConsWork/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 Senior ManagementOverall 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    My experience at DynCorp International, LLC

    Senior Accountant (Former Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsThis 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.

    ConsManagement 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 Senior ManagementThey should screen managers and offer classes on management to managers as to how to communicate more effectively.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Opportunities to steer my own learning and discovery

    IT Manager (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementFix 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
