I worked at DynCorp International

Pros

Generally, the employees are dedicated and turely interested in doing the right thing. Excellent vacation time, very good benefits, good location and facilities. (The covered parking is great.)

Cons

Unstable -- multiple headquarters lay-offs, triggered by the arrival of new CEOs. Also, frequent changes in policies and procedures, with uneven application across the corporation. This creates waste. Despite management's best efforts, to reward performance, the employees who succeed are too often their manager's favorites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too little of the management philosophy is actually applied day-to-day. Look into how employees are treated and the human impact of your decisions. You may be surprised at what you find.

    I have been working at DynCorp International

    Pros

    Competitive pay and the work they do in very difficult situations. In general good people within your work group family. Benefits are on par with other goverment contractors.

    Cons

    Management is in silo's and does not communicate well with different departments. Dis-connects between corporate office and the Fort Worth/Florida office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communications to team members. Have a better understanding of the actions that are being put in place so that team members are not put in a position to fail.

  2.  

    Shell game; entire business model seems like a bait and switch for expectations they've sold the gov't.

    I have been working at DynCorp International

    Pros

    Salary was above average and offices were clean, well-kept. Overall competence and motivation of employees is good. Bottom Line: They pay well, but part of that is because they are negotiated into contracts.

    Cons

    Controller overrules other departments by cutting their budgets.
    Zero corporate governance.
    All decisions made in Falls Church, FW seen as backwater..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful that you don't end up on the front page of the WSJ again, people might not be so forgiving.
