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

    Pros

    If you are really in need of employment and can't find anything else then work here only to gain experience and then leave after a year. Otherwise, I don't recommend working here.

    Cons

    DI is top heavy and pay only its upper management personnel. They don't care about the support staff, often lose bids on proposal due to POOR PAST PERFORMANCE ratings, and has a bad reputation with the government. They are a sinking ship!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house!! of your upper management who have fat paychecks, stop hiring your siblings, and other family members and promote HONESTLY within the minorities who are qualified. Stop promoting those caucasians who are NOT qualified. Stop lying to the government!!!

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation is very nice if you don't have an issue working 12 hr days, 7 days a week. They do have quite a few positions available and you are able to apply to another position for advancement. As long as you do your job, you will shine among the masses, as there are many third country nationals. The work is very easy.

    Cons

    Getting proper support is a constant battle since the DOD runs many of the operations, and the contracts state who is supposed to be responsible for a majority of the support. There is a quote "Do the right thing ALWAYS" As a worker, it appears many times that the quote is expected of them but not the upper echelon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company values are for everyone. Step in and make the necessary changes in order to give employees a better work/life balance. The workforce structure can be changed to enhance the work experience abroad. Possibly try some short time off on given days.....eg. 2 to 3 hours on scheduled days, just to break up the drone effect. It could be 1 day per week and would help a great deal.

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    High salaries per experience and a ton of flex time during the week.

    Cons

    I had a manager who broke every rule on the social contract. I reported it to Ethics because it was getting out of hand. Ethics said, "yeah, there are some bad managers out there but just because he lies or treats you bad does not mean anything.. but I will talk to them about the internal training you aren't getting". I was given permission for training immediately afterwards and a couple weeks after that I was let go in a so called "lay-off"! I contacted Ethics regarding "retaliation" and they wouldn't respond for 6+ months. Later found out that my boss had lied again to Ethics in a cover-up so Ethics just left it at that. Would not look into the matter.
    Turnover is significant. More than any company I've ever seen. I had 7 different managers during my few years tenure. None of whom are with the company any more. Further, leadership portrays unethical standards in cost representation to the government.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The right thing doesn't come from you.

    Pros

    Anytime you're working in a war zone you become a family with those on the ground.

    Cons

    This company hired much less qualified personnel who once worked for me into the lead positions that I held with other companies doing identical work. Military experience takes heavy preference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is legal but hiring ANY group over qualifications, experience, past successes will weaken the company in the long run.
