    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...

    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

    When working on a base supported by dyncorp the facilities were adequate and well maintained. The management was easy to contact if needed.

    Cons

    The isn't very many state side positions available when you redeploy so expect to either stay deployed or look for work else where.
