    I have been working at DynCorp International

    Pros

    Got paid on time. Uniforms were provided and we had most specialized tools to perform all facets of aircraft maintenance.

    Cons

    Being away from home, but that's expected when signing up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Pay is decent looking from the outside in, but once you are in you receive more and more tasks.

    Cons

    Some of the worst management. Employees are belittled, micro-managed, and at times harrased and it is accepted by Human Resources. Retaliation is also a fear all employees have. Management sticks together even if proven wrong. Human Resources is there to protect management and the company NOT the employee. Company is all about metrics instead of taking the time to take care of the customer. This company is also all about who you know. Opportunities are given to only certain people.

    I worked at DynCorp International

    Pros

    Above average compensation stateside and abroad. This compensation package has helped many families over the years. Be aware that this is a government contractor which has varying staffing needs.

    Cons

    Working stateside I found the number of layoffs were unsettling and caused stress within the department. (To be expected) Upper management was not as affected though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The good ol boys network / hire your friends for upper positions has a lot of internal attention but not a lot of respect.

    Pros

    There are a few incentive rewards with healthcare to earn reward money. Fair amount of places to get discounts and perks, ie. AT&T. Tuition assistance is very generous along with relocation reimbursement.

    Cons

    Upper management does not know what is going on or how to run the program. There are many issues, one being the current health insurance change and no coverage in this area. Possibility of layoffs and a reduced workforce. Overtime has currently been banned due to the budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to be informed of what it is really like to work at a site and realize that the great plans that are drawn up in a cubical, will always work. Professional micromanagers and this creates issues as one can imagine.
