The experience gained here was rewarding in supporting our troops and the US Navy Fleet directly.

Aircraft Mechanical II (Current Employee)
Baltimore, MD

I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 10 years

ProsMultiudes of different equipment to work on, and write new NDI Techiques. I never know what is going to come through my doors.

ConsLack of training incentives to progress, to learn more, at least new currnet techniques To many individuals carrying the administrative load of people in higher places, preventing the artisians to progress.

Advice to Senior ManagementA little more discipline with consequences is needed across the board. If you lead by example people will respect you, and they will follow.

My time was short

Avionics Technician (Current Employee)
Patuxent River, MD

I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for less than a year

ProsGood pay and union support, the people I worked with were top notch people. They provide a good travel bonus.

ConsThey have a lack of vision, expensive benefits, the cost of living is very high. There is not a lot of things to do in the area unless you go the D.C. or Baltimore.

It was ok but definitely not anything to write home about.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fort Campbell, KY

I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than a year

ProsThe pay is pretty decent depending on what you do. The benefits are pretty good as well.

ConsExcessive favortism shown to friends of management with job opportunities. Management discourages anything regarding promotions with intimidation. A lot of double standards but they are minimal in severity, just aggravating to see.

Advice to Senior ManagementConduct honest assessments rather than "checking the block" so hard working employees are recognized for their hard work. Also, please do away with the "good ole boy system". There is nothing more frustrating than seeing a supervisor appoint (promote) a friend instead of another qualified person.

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

Opportunities to steer my own learning and discovery

IT Manager (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

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

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
