Pros

Times are tough so it is a paycheck. If you are politically savvy the environment could be right for you. If you like to travel to third world countries and carry firearms that's a plus.
There are a lot of good people in the company in lower management and the ground troops. Those people cannot be beat. If you work stateside you can't make as much money but you have less chance of getting taken out by a roadside bomb or bullets. So it's kind of a wash. Take out a real good life insurance policy for the family just in case.
If you like to be in meetings that are redundantly redundant, it's easy money there.

Cons

Ever since the company went public it has gone downhill. They even stripped the company picnic and Christmas party... and those were the only perks to begin with. After a large layoff if there was a grain of moral left it's gone now.
If you hate meetings there is a good shot you may not like the place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managements hands are tied. The problems stem from the very top. There is a good reason the CEO/Chairman has a 17% approval and falling.

    Pros

    If you are crook and want to make some easy money please do join DynCorp. The higher ups will help you to become a millionaire in short time. Get a job in Iraq or Afghanistan, join in Contracts department or Procurement and mint money. Or be a sub contractor to DynCorp

    Cons

    Good employees will not survive long, employees who dont add any values to the company makes more money and they survive there for long time. Screw up and Move up...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management should review on what value each person adds to the company. There so many non performing employees, they should get rid of them to reduce the overhead. There are so many upper managment people who protect these non performers and they make this company look bad. When ever there is reduction in employees, these people survive that through their contacts.

    Pros

    Overall the industry is fairly stable. While contracts may switch from one provider to another, the workers typically remain in the same job positions. For the most part the compensation is good, but not great.

    Cons

    As a corporate employee rather than working on a contract, I am overhead and considered an uneeded expense. As government oversight becomes more and more vogue, contractors have to pinch pennies to remain profitable, and when some contracts only return a few percent profit margin, it is easy to target overhead functions, even the ones that provide the innovations that helped win the contract in the first place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your line managers.
