    Pros

    Great people and Good mission..Lots of opportunities if your willing to relocate for them.

    Cons

    past few years have been rough but seem to be turning a corner...

    Advice to Management

    Having us sign a statement each year acknowledging our salary is fine and expected..but calling it a "rewards statement" is a bit degrading..I work for a living and EARN my salary..

    Pros

    Good company when they are winning deals... shuffled 3 CEO's and 5 CIO's in 3 years,

    Cons

    Running joke as we never know if our bade will work to get into door. Always lurking are layoffs and once an "all hands meeting" is announced we check to see if our peers on there as it is their way to move all from office that are not or sometime are getting layoff.

    Advice to Management

    Win deals and be prepared financially when market slows so you do not cut good people.

    Pros

    Good pay, very former veteran friendly. If you're sharp with a great attitude, you can go as far with DynCorp.

    Cons

    Longevity is contract dependent. Same with most companies that rely on government contracts; unless they win a re-compete or a new contract, you're looking for another job every few years.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you give your stellar performers every opportunities to take courses like the Sis Sigma series, even when you think you can't spare them. Don't send the folks you CAN spare.
