    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are endless amounts of opportunities to improve as a professional . The mid level management are great and do all they can to ensure a great work environment

    Cons

    Company in a downward spiral . Poor top level management and declining profitable opportunities. The defense industry as a whole is suffering due to limited funding from the U.S. Government and this doesn't bode well for the industry as a whole

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    401K and paid time off. Being able to work with good people at the NASA facility at Ellington Field. Customer oriented.

    Cons

    Not an employee oriented company. Fail to recognized outstanding work or employees with years of knowledge and experience. Quick to fire or let key personnel that were critical to the contract walk away.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees that have more experience than you do working the contract and allow them to do their jobs in a safe and hostile free environment.

    Pros

    You will learned a lot about how not to treat people, and how not to run a team. You will also learned that some BIG pay checks are just not worth what you have to go through to get them.

    Cons

    Management had no moral compass. Discrimination and lying ran rampant among senior leaders. This company is burden on the military and all those who serve in uniform.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for the management. Some things you cant fix and the management at this company is one of those things.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The best reason to work for DynCorp International is by far the compensation given compared to jobs in the field of law enforcement.

    Cons

    Management is extremely incompetent. Employees are treated as numbers and not people. Management routinely lies to employees about any and everything. Management fosters an attitude of "window or isle seat". This means that if you continue voicing your concerns, you will soon be choosing a "window or isle seat" on your flight home after you are fired.

    Advice to Management

    Work on truthful communication with employees. Do not make up answers to important questions simply because you don't know the answer. Tell the employees the truth not what you think they want to hear. Also, in Afghanistan, too many decisions are made by people in Kabul who have no idea that there is a war raging in other parts of the country. Seek input from employees from these areas and make decisions based on the particular area they are in, rather than making blanket decisions that do not work in all parts of the country.

    Pros

    Good pay considering the economy...good 401(k) if you can stand to stick around long enough for it to pay off.

    Cons

    Dyncorp likes to squeeze their employee dry...you're just a warm body to fill a slot.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! Your company is being run into the ground by the "good old boy" system...promote your friends and run off everyone else. You are going to lose good employees.

    Pros

    Salary was ok compared to other companies. Always paid on time.

    Cons

    Long, long, hours. Purchasing Manager was not suited for leadership. Incredible workload with not enough staff. Manager did not seem to care about his people he just wanted the work to get done. They operate in dangerous countries.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better. They are your best asset.

    Pros

    Bad economical situation in my country. Because I have accepted to be here. Otherwise I would think twice to accept such a job.

    Cons

    Too many promises for good life,promotions and good salaries. It gives you hope all the time but at the end you become aware that those were just empty promises. It is very rare someone to be promoted. 90% from the Balkan people are not satisfied with their FNA contracts. Anyway, someone has to open the world map and to see that Macedonia and Bosnia are part of Europe.

    Advice to Management

    To be more concerned about its employees. People use to quit just because they are not satisfied with the money. If the company wants to have and keep the professionals with it they have to think about this issue. Otherwise only Kenyians and Indians will work here.


  11. Bad example of how the "contracting" world is supposed to be.

    Pros

    Compared to having a job and not having a job, you can always start networking to find other places for employment by networking with other contractors.

    Cons

    This company underbid many other contracting agencies to win the bids. In this business practice, they do have numerous oppurtunities, but the individual suffers because you salary is lower than what it should be, plus numerous cuts to the benefits package.
