I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Tried to do things differently than KBR; only a few previous KBR in Program Management at start of LOGCAP IV; old KBR Program Management has now taken over.

Cons

Failed to learn or implement positive aspects of KBR LOGCAP strategies; old KBR Program Management has now taken over. Needs new business; funding to LOGCAP is drying up.

Advice to Management

Figure out business development strategy; put the right, qualified management in the right positions.

    You ask for someone's opinion then just let it go in one ear and out the other

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    Pay is the only positive

    Cons

    Working for DynCorp International, DI and especially in IT can be compared to the TV show survivor. Pick your allies carefully and trust no one. Immunity can be gained if you have the right relatives in DI. Some very strong technical employees have been laid off in IT b/c they didn't want to play the game anymore. Large percent of the remaining technical employees are looking to leave because of the decisions the remaining IT Directors, CIO and CEO have made. CEO Steve Gaffney believes DI IT should be run on a skeleton crew, just keeping the lights on, like IAP where he came from. To make this happen Steve Gaffney believes 50-60 hour work weeks are to be expected as the norm for exempt employees. Watch for parts of IT to start being outsourced to the cloud and third party vendors to help make this happen.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.
