    Pros

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

    Cons

    Lack 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 Management

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

    Pros

    This is a great company to work. They have good ethics and training programs for employees. I would go back to work for this company under the right managers.

    Cons

    Management sometimes does not get all the information needed to make decisions. In some instances management takes the word of others instead of coming to their own conclusions.

    Advice to Management

    They should screen managers and offer classes on management to managers as to how to communicate more effectively.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    They 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.

    Pros

    Program Manager came and visited quite frequently showed interest and concern. Pay raises were decent.

    Cons

    No matter if you worked or lazy, everyone got the same pay raise. Were too easy going, not all personnel were held accountable for their actions. Kept the same excess baggage throughout the length of the contract. Literacy tests and basic skills should have to be demonstrated when getting paid this well.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who work and care, send the slackers out the gate.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Excessive 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 Management

    Conduct 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.

    Pros

    DynCorp employees proactive, smart people who are a pleasure to work with in its office environment. The managers have a large network of resources and are constantly training to improve their job skills.

    Cons

    Travel is a must. Most jobs require light to heavy travel including overseas where many of their contracts are.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Fix 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.
