    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good Salary, some very good qualified people, not much else good to say about Dyncorp

    Cons

    Disorganized, no direction, lack of planning, management does not listen to employees, to much turnover from layoffs and voluntary, long hours expected by all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, find other ways than layoffs to keep the bottom line looking good. You know the government is going to be cyclical, but you consistently hit the hard working people with layoffs instead of finding another way. Live the Code of Conduct instead of just spouting it.

    Great company at times. The program / management team an employee has will either make you love or hate the company.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good people, strong values, decent benefits, competitive pay, military / vet friendly, branching into commercial contracts in addition to government contracts.

    Cons

    Limited options for promotions and employee development. HR policies seem contradictory. Company owners have changed the way enterprise functions.. and it hasn't benefited the employees at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your current people rather than bringing on new VPs.

    Pros

    Great pay up until they lay you off

    Cons

    If you have any integrity or skill, you WILL be replaced.

    They hire old, used up generals and affirmative-action square-fillers who bring in their own yes-men. It is entirely unimportant to do a good job; just smile a lot and hope your boss doesn't have a buddy looking at your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign and hire competent leaders

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent salaries and the working class employees are mostly good people who want to do good work.

    Cons

    DynCorp is owned by the private equity firm Cerebus who does not understand the business that DynCorp does nor has any interest in doing so. Their only interest is in squeezing as much as they possibly can out of DynCorp and its people. Innovation is non-existent as is employee morale. Since Cerebus has purchased us, company benefits have dried up. Employee raises are gone, insurance premiums have increased dramatically every year, training dollars are always the first to be cut from budgets, and even simple morale boost benefits such as blue jeans on Fridays have been eliminated. You are spoken to and treated as if you are lucky to even have a job. Employees work constantly under the threat of an oncoming reduction in force (RIF) and after each one, you are asked to work harder to make up for the missing personnel.

    As the US government reduces defense spending, DynCorp's prospects for growth and even sustainment are grim. The company has not positioned itself for this circumstance and is suffering because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, I cannot imagine any words will help. Even a small appreciation of your employees would be beneficial. Forgo your executive bonus program to reinstate merit increases for employees Invest in them with training dollars. Give them a reason to want to stay here. As it stands today, every employee I know is currently looking for outside employment. Aside from a paycheck, you have given no one a reason to stay.
