    Pros

    Salary and benefits are king! If you really know your stuff and have an ample amount of experience i.e. 10 years or more, then this is a great paying, I mean awesome paying job that should not be passed up. Well, provided you are a single person or have a very patient spouse who doesn't mind waiting for you while you put some dough away for your future.

    Cons

    Comunication. After having to meet some pretty strict criteria to get the job, you may feel a bit ripped off by some of the inexperienced individuals that pop up every now and then. The lines of communication leave something to be desired which is no atmosphere for the inexperienced in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Feedback is the best keyword. When asked for information, at least let someone know you are awake received the request and are working on it.

    The impact we face as a Goverment Services Industry.

    Pros

    Strong company values for which people are held accountable; companywide sense of pride in the mission - people care about the work they are doing; opportunities to learn more to advance your career are limitless

    Cons

    Market dynamics make this a challenging time for anyone who contracts with the U.S. government; not a place for those just looking to "show-up" each day who are not invested in the work they do

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on core values across company; continue to hold people accountable for delivering results and living the company values

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gaffney's vision, leadership, mentoring. Completely different company since Cerberus bought us.

    Cons

    "It's not my job"; "It's the COE's fault", "COE's do not support us" and like statements from middle management and below that tarnish relationships. Common statements within BATs and COEs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't compound bad decision made several years ago and perpetuate it. It might be better to snap a chalk line and start over.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Our Owner and our Chairman/CEO are the best that I've worked for. They always seem to have the DI Star in mind when they must make those tough decisions regarding staffing. I have never seen the CEO unkind--firm, yes, demanding, yes, but kind.

    Cons

    The uncertainty for the company staff because of the uncertain win or lose in government contracting.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more all-hands communication
