    Pros

    competitive pay with great benefits. The health and dental care are a fraction of what you would pay with a typical contracting company.

    Cons

    Not enough jobs overseas. Dyncoprs overseas presence has always been in the middle of the pack when it comes to overseas companies. A few more bids and wins on those bids will work great for a company with such promise.

    Pros

    Change in Leadership on the horizon; hopeful change in Proposals so that we may begin to win work.

    Cons

    Complacent work environment, Weak HR.... REALLY WEAK. No one is held accountable for their inability to perform the work that they were hired to do in Project Controls. HR decisions has hindered the ability of our direct manager. The people who know cost can not staff to the level needed with the talent required to make a difference. HR is the worst I have ever seen. We are not talking about most HR workers, I am talking about Management and Senior Management. They will not hold people accountable when management brings them an issue with their employees. Their actions are appalling.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable so that my manager who knows what is supposed to happen can make it happen. Replace HR with employees who can aid managers in managing when there is an issue. Do NOT lay off people who WONT or DONT work, Fire them!

    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..
