I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor for more than 3 years

Pros

Great human resources department which was responsive to employees needs especially when it concerned their safety, salaries, movements and working relations.

Cons

Time off was limited 30 days annually. Working at 12 hours a day ,7 days a week was stressful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Review company policy especially in terms of R&R.

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    It is an international company, perhaps the adventure to other countries, cultures, however the market is changing, expect a reduction in positions overall.

    Cons

    Lack of response from headquarters, even after I emailed the CEO about the issue. I requested a change of work area from local management, that was denied. It was a health hazard to all workers, including other military groups, and contract company employees. I heard in the aftermath, people have issues talking, are coughing, have headaches. Why do large corporation, supposedly experts in the field lack adequate procedures to prevent future health issues that their employees may experience. Not my idea of a company with great values, and the values they say is there operational foundation.

    No training in my field of IT. Corporate headquarters was not timely in IT issues, in adding support to overseas base. The management does not have the skill or the knowledge to adequately create an efficient and effective IT service level. No training in my field of IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I advised the management, never heard back. The CEO was replaced, however I doubt it was due to my email. Does management read this.... I doubt it.

    Workers make companies money, why allow future suffering from health issues?

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is OK.
    Because of a Twenty (20) word minumim I need to make up additional pro items. I wish I could make something up.

    Cons

    A PMO office that feels that the employees in the field work for them and not the other way. PTO is not very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach your PMO office how business works. Do not let your ego determine who is fired. The ego in the PMO office lost thousands of dollars in profit, erased goodwill with teh customer and any future customer input will prevent a follow on contract.
