    Most locals mistreat you.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Pay is competitive and liked the location

    Cons

    Corporate needs to re-evaluate their managment.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be open about changes within the companies and department. Directors should listen to what the lower level employees are telling them about their managers and make changes to the management instead of brushing them off.

    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.

    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.

    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

    I am not sure that I have anything positive.

    Cons

    The cons of working at DynCorp is the employees are not teamplayers. The training is not adequate. You are expected to perform your job without asking questions. The environment is more figure it out on your own. If you make mistakes you will lose your job. You are expected to work late. The salaries are inflated.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with employees


  9. Shell game; entire business model seems like a bait and switch for expectations they've sold the gov't.

    Pros

    Salary was above average and offices were clean, well-kept. Overall competence and motivation of employees is good. Bottom Line: They pay well, but part of that is because they are negotiated into contracts.

    Cons

    Controller overrules other departments by cutting their budgets.
    Zero corporate governance.
    All decisions made in Falls Church, FW seen as backwater..

    Advice to Management

    Be careful that you don't end up on the front page of the WSJ again, people might not be so forgiving.

    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.
