    I have been working at DynCorp International

    Pros

    Seems to be winning again and fixing the former management team's mess-- the damage was huge. No more Flippen behavior courses and other wasteful projects that added nothing-- all gone and repairs underway.

    Cons

    The CEO needs to communicate substantially more and be project presence.Tell the company where we are and where we are going. He needs to visit offices outside of Virginia. He needs to convince us that he is prepared to lead the company through the transformation back to being strong and tell how how he plans to do it and how we can help. This is a big problem, no communication , no staff meetings-- just a back hole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO needs lead.

    Pros

    The company does not have very many 'pros.' When you are working a contract for this company, you are only a number to which they must pay an income.

    Cons

    No consistent raises and/or incentives. On exit after company lost its recompete bid, it used underhanded tactics to give employees less of their hard earned income due to a 'last-day=first day of pay-period' so no matter how many hours of 'authorized' overtime the employee worked, they received 8 hours of pay! Then, during the next to last pay period, the company did NOT pay out EARNED VACATION TIME! Unsat!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You might want to NOT pinch pennies with departing employees who have earned you very GREAT profits throught their tireless efforts! Gives your company a very cheap appearance!

    Pros

    It was a good place to work Nice living conditions and such

    Cons

    they contractors were starting to be forced to live with third country nationals so DynCorp could save money. US contractors had different benefits' and could not enjoy them because of the living conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't allow Money to make or influence your future issues.

    DynCorp Kuwait was a good experience. But it depends on management, which seems to be a rotating door...

    Pros

    money was good, living conditions were great for the employees in the southern region. not so good for the employees in the northern region.

    Cons

    not many cons... there is always room to complain about management, but what company can you find room to complain about the management. I would suggest working here.

    Cons

    The isn't very many state side positions available when you redeploy so expect to either stay deployed or look for work else where.
