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.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (more than an year)

    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.

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

    Pros

    If you get in with the right manager/Sr. Leadership member, you can get promoted quickly and paid well. It was about 40 min from where I live and the surrounding environment offered great shopping and lunch options. I worked in the Corp home office in Ft Worth, and had the opportunity to travel. I learned a great deal there.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance, and the company values that they push publically is not what the actual culture is. It is everyone for themselves and when you try and build a team, it is pulled apart. I have never worked in a more gossip oriented environment in my career. No stability in leadership, with a high turnover in all programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your teams that do all the work, and make the impossible tasks happen. Stop hiring friends and family and start promoting the professionals who are qualified for the pay and positions that they hold. Recognize achievements and improve the culture. Appreciate your employees not just the Sr. Leadership.
