    Former Employee - Aviation Site Supervisor in Gardēz (Afghanistan)

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits
    Good 401K and health plans

    Cons

    Management sometimes offers little support
    DynCorp seems to have the propensity to hire incompetent managers/supervisors just to fill holes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the managers you hire can do the job AND have management experience or at least offer them training on how to treat their employees.

    Horrible Company. After two years, I am only glad that the paychecks come on time.

    Former Employee - Air Traffic Controller  in  Kabul (Afghanistan)
    Former Employee - Air Traffic Controller in Kabul (Afghanistan)

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've never had any pay issues.
    THe company pays to get you into and out of theater.

    Cons

    Local management is often incompetent. Site leaders seem to rise to leadership through attrition rather than any qualifications or skills. Site leaders are often not qualified and use poor leadership techniques (e.g. micromanagement) to hang onto their positions and enforce rules that often seem arbitrary.

    Contract bidders underbid highly skilled, technical positions (Air Traffic Control) and overbid support positions (Airfield Operations), resulting in the former being paid at a higher rate than the latter. Moreover, the low pay results in a disproportionate number of marginally or un-qualified personnel on contract, or personnel who have difficulty getting jobs in the US because of undesirable personality traits.

    Redundancy at all levels. Training documents must be reproduced for each level because operations at varying levels are not effectively communicating with each other. Certifications that are not pertinent to positions are copied and kept on file by the company.

    The benefits package is weak, especially for a multimillion-dollar corporation with over 100,000 employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of vetting site leadership. Ensure that pay scales are congruent with industry norms (Air traffic Controllers with DI make an average of 30k below industry norms).
