    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Strong company values for which people are held accountable; companywide sense of pride in the mission - people care about the work they are doing; opportunities to learn more to advance your career are limitless

    Cons

    Market dynamics make this a challenging time for anyone who contracts with the U.S. government; not a place for those just looking to "show-up" each day who are not invested in the work they do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on core values across company; continue to hold people accountable for delivering results and living the company values
