    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Our Owner and our Chairman/CEO are the best that I've worked for. They always seem to have the DI Star in mind when they must make those tough decisions regarding staffing. I have never seen the CEO unkind--firm, yes, demanding, yes, but kind.

    Cons

    The uncertainty for the company staff because of the uncertain win or lose in government contracting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more all-hands communication

    Pros

    The company is full of intelligent, helpful, team players.

    Cons

    The company has made benefit cuts to compete with this poor economy. I hope once the economy turns around the company will remember that the employees gave up benefits in bad time hoping to have them returned with good times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to coach and mentor your employees, they are an investment.

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great HR, Finance Department.Excellent compliance ethos. Never an issue with corporate, and they went many extra miles when abrupt endings occurred on contracts they had.

    Cons

    Some Senior project management lacked skills in administrating and managing people. Many were hired for their credentials, rather then their abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a good program, provided excellent overall support and handled the day to day issues well. More clarity of what field management can and can't do would be appreciated.

    Pros

    Gaffney's vision, leadership, mentoring. Completely different company since Cerberus bought us.

    Cons

    "It's not my job"; "It's the COE's fault", "COE's do not support us" and like statements from middle management and below that tarnish relationships.
    Common statements within BATs and COEs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't compound bad decision made several years ago and perpetuate it. It might be better to snap a chalk line and start over.
