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

    Pros

    Many professionals involved in day-to-day operations. Excellent pay with great medical benefits.

    Cons

    Very few if any. Since DynCorp has a world-wide mission, many days and months away from family takes a small toll on family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. DynCorp is a strong company with a long tract history of satisfying the customer.

    Pros

    No two days are ever the same. Since this company has locations all around the world. There is always something happening, 24/7. The opportunity for growth is excellent. The general overhead is low, so everyone wears many hats. I am learning something new everyday. I love interacting with people all over the world. I get to work with true american heroes. The ethics are top notch. There is a social contract that is signed and followed to the letter. This definitely makes for a very pleasant work atmosphere. The leadership training is relevant immediately to our managers, not just something they can use in the future. I love it here.

    Cons

    You need to be available 24/7, 365. They keep the overhead low, but this creates a bottleneck sometime to get something processed. Some of the software applications need to be updated and more user friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer the bonuses to everyone, not just managers. This is truly a team environment. Everyone on the team needs to be rewarded, not just the managers.
