    Pros

    Great people and Good mission..Lots of opportunities if your willing to relocate for them.

    Cons

    past few years have been rough but seem to be turning a corner...

    Advice to Management

    Having us sign a statement each year acknowledging our salary is fine and expected..but calling it a "rewards statement" is a bit degrading..I work for a living and EARN my salary..

    Pros

    Seems to be winning again and fixing the former management team's mess-- the damage was huge. No more Flippen behavior courses and other wasteful projects that added nothing-- all gone and repairs underway.

    Cons

    The CEO needs to communicate substantially more and be project presence.Tell the company where we are and where we are going. He needs to visit offices outside of Virginia. He needs to convince us that he is prepared to lead the company through the transformation back to being strong and tell how how he plans to do it and how we can help. This is a big problem, no communication , no staff meetings-- just a back hole.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO needs lead.

    DynCorp Kuwait was a good experience. But it depends on management, which seems to be a rotating door...

    Pros

    money was good, living conditions were great for the employees in the southern region. not so good for the employees in the northern region.

    Cons

    not many cons... there is always room to complain about management, but what company can you find room to complain about the management. I would suggest working here.

    Pros

    i believe in our mission to support the military and other government entities. Benefits have generally been good. Work location is okay. Plenty of parking.

    Cons

    We were too tied to military efforts so with the drawn down in Iraq and Afghanistan we've had to lay off a large number of employees.

    After letting go a long term CEO, we hired someone who last two weeks and now have an interim CEO! All within the last 3 months. Too much upheaval. Some benefits have been scaled back. No increase in two years.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify our portfolio. Listen to employee suggestions.
