    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in `Alījān (Afghanistan)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in `Alījān (Afghanistan)

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation is very nice if you don't have an issue working 12 hr days, 7 days a week. They do have quite a few positions available and you are able to apply to another position for advancement. As long as you do your job, you will shine among the masses, as there are many third country nationals. The work is very easy.

    Cons

    Getting proper support is a constant battle since the DOD runs many of the operations, and the contracts state who is supposed to be responsible for a majority of the support. There is a quote "Do the right thing ALWAYS" As a worker, it appears many times that the quote is expected of them but not the upper echelon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company values are for everyone. Step in and make the necessary changes in order to give employees a better work/life balance. The workforce structure can be changed to enhance the work experience abroad. Possibly try some short time off on given days.....eg. 2 to 3 hours on scheduled days, just to break up the drone effect. It could be 1 day per week and would help a great deal.

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, in processing, freedom to act without supervision.

    Cons

    Lack of communication about future contract status. Poor relationship with the military.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involving the company with the supported organization is critical. The company allowed it relationship to lapse. A direct quote from a U.S. Army Colonel who was my supervisor and was pleased with my performance - "DynCorp is the Enemy".

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay wasn't as strong as, say, KBR and some of the other companies. However, you received a lot more of the freedoms you'd receive working a normal job.

    Cons

    You're not completely free. Having a family can be difficult. Hard to move up, depending on the project.
