Pros

Opportunity to travel, work in various location and meet differnet people. DynCorp has the vibe of a small family company with a fortune 500 persepctive.

Cons

The only down fall with DynCorp is lack of formalization acrosss the company regarding processes. This CON makes work harder at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Only advise is to increase communication with employees and clearly set expectations. This will increase the ability for employees to mature to full performance.

    Pros

    DynCorp International, at the heart, has some very patriotic missions I am proud to support. As a former military person, it is good to see that patriotism still extists outside the military, and that our country is willing to assist other countries in times of need.

    Cons

    Though a great deal of upper management is now gone or replaced, there are a few that still linger from the old days. These managers were at their best when it was ok to treat employees like dirt. At this point in the world economy, they know they have us by the balls and take every advantage they can to exploit our dedication and hard work. Some of the managers are very catty, hold grudges for genuine and benign mistakes and blacklist well-meaning, very capable staff because of their own personal agendas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the social agreement you signed and follow it. At this time, you do not. You have no interest in seeing your employees grow with the company or developing intercompany relationships with any other goal than to point fingers. Grow the hell up and act like adults already. I think Mr. Gaffney could be a great leader if everyone in this company wasn't so scared to stand up and tell him exactly what's going on. His vision and ideas sound good, in practice, but they aren't being accomplished because the Sr. management crowd is full of spite and ill intent.

    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.
