    Good Pay horrible management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPay is competitive and liked the location

    ConsCorporate needs to re-evaluate their managment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers should be open about changes within the companies and department. Directors should listen to what the lower level employees are telling them about their managers and make changes to the management instead of brushing them off.

    Bad example of how the "contracting" world is supposed to be.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompared to having a job and not having a job, you can always start networking to find other places for employment by networking with other contractors.

    ConsThis company underbid many other contracting agencies to win the bids. In this business practice, they do have numerous oppurtunities, but the individual suffers because you salary is lower than what it should be, plus numerous cuts to the benefits package.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very bad.

    Laundry Attendant (Current Employee)

    ProsBad economical situation in my country. Because I have accepted to be here. Otherwise I would think twice to accept such a job.

    ConsToo many promises for good life,promotions and good salaries. It gives you hope all the time but at the end you become aware that those were just empty promises. It is very rare someone to be promoted. 90% from the Balkan people are not satisfied with their FNA contracts. Anyway, someone has to open the world map and to see that Macedonia and Bosnia are part of Europe.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo be more concerned about its employees. People use to quit just because they are not satisfied with the money. If the company wants to have and keep the professionals with it they have to think about this issue. Otherwise only Kenyians and Indians will work here.

    Not the best experience, lack of professional leadership from supervisor.

    Buyer (Former Employee)

    ProsSalary was ok compared to other companies. Always paid on time.

    ConsLong, long, hours. Purchasing Manager was not suited for leadership. Incredible workload with not enough staff. Manager did not seem to care about his people he just wanted the work to get done. They operate in dangerous countries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your people better. They are your best asset.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    You would be better off elsewhere

    MCT (Current Employee)

    ProsGood pay considering the economy...good 401(k) if you can stand to stick around long enough for it to pay off.

    ConsDyncorp likes to squeeze their employee dry...you're just a warm body to fill a slot.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up! Your company is being run into the ground by the "good old boy" system...promote your friends and run off everyone else. You are going to lose good employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    DynCorp International needs a lot of work on communication with employees

    International Police Advisor (Former Employee) Jalālābād, Nangarhar Province (Afghanistan)

    ProsThe best reason to work for DynCorp International is by far the compensation given compared to jobs in the field of law enforcement.

    ConsManagement is extremely incompetent. Employees are treated as numbers and not people. Management routinely lies to employees about any and everything. Management fosters an attitude of "window or isle seat". This means that if you continue voicing your concerns, you will soon be choosing a "window or isle seat" on your flight home after you are fired.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on truthful communication with employees. Do not make up answers to important questions simply because you don't know the answer. Tell the employees the truth not what you think they want to hear. Also, in Afghanistan, too many decisions are made by people in Kabul who have no idea that there is a war raging in other parts of the country. Seek input from employees from these areas and make decisions based on the particular area they are in, rather than making blanket decisions that do not work in all parts of the country.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
