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

    Pros

    It is a corporation that has been a leading aviation service provider for many years. This business line has performed well for several years.

    Cons

    The business systems are eith antiquated or non-existent. There seems to be a lack of business vision outside the Government Services Industry which is a well that is dry at the moment. Much instability at the top of the corporation undergoing three CEO changes in the last 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek a CEO that has a robust businesss vision in the commercial market rather than keeping eggs in the same Government Services Industry basket.

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is that you are getting paid no matter what happens outside the wire. As long as you work your 84 hours, they will pay you for them.

    Cons

    The leadership is terrible, they are double minded, most do not know anything about the job they are performing. The company does not treat its employees well, there is no time off, no sick days, no holidays and they wonder why people are exhausted and complaining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees like adults and not someone you despise. Listen to our ideas on how to improve things and dont shut us out. Allow us to have some time off even if its not paid so that we can regenerate our minds and bodies

    Pros

    Decent salary. Travel and training if it's within your job description.

    Cons

    Lack of communications between corporate and the 'folks in the field.' Educational benefits - yeah, if the class you're taking is looked upon as within your job scope, but highly subjective.
