I worked at DynCorp International full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

This is a great company to work. They have good ethics and training programs for employees. I would go back to work for this company under the right managers.

Cons

Management sometimes does not get all the information needed to make decisions. In some instances management takes the word of others instead of coming to their own conclusions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should screen managers and offer classes on management to managers as to how to communicate more effectively.

    Corporate employees are lemons who exist only to be squeezed.

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

    Pros

    Decent salaries and the working class employees are mostly good people who want to do good work.

    Cons

    DynCorp is owned by the private equity firm Cerebus who does not understand the business that DynCorp does nor has any interest in doing so. Their only interest is in squeezing as much as they possibly can out of DynCorp and its people. Innovation is non-existent as is employee morale. Since Cerebus has purchased us, company benefits have dried up. Employee raises are gone, insurance premiums have increased dramatically every year, training dollars are always the first to be cut from budgets, and even simple morale boost benefits such as blue jeans on Fridays have been eliminated. You are spoken to and treated as if you are lucky to even have a job. Employees work constantly under the threat of an oncoming reduction in force (RIF) and after each one, you are asked to work harder to make up for the missing personnel.

    As the US government reduces defense spending, DynCorp's prospects for growth and even sustainment are grim. The company has not positioned itself for this circumstance and is suffering because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, I cannot imagine any words will help. Even a small appreciation of your employees would be beneficial. Forgo your executive bonus program to reinstate merit increases for employees Invest in them with training dollars. Give them a reason to want to stay here. As it stands today, every employee I know is currently looking for outside employment. Aside from a paycheck, you have given no one a reason to stay.

    I have been working at DynCorp International as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good medical and 401k benefits

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement being a contractor is limited

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More selective screening of personnel for technical jobs should take place for highly skilled positions, ie just because someone changed oil on trucks does not make them qualified to work on all systems of a vehicle, extensive background and previous employer's should be contacted for references
