    Approves of CEO

    I worked at DynCorp International (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, wonderful manager and challenging work. I enjoyed my time there and felt that I was working with intelligent people.

    Cons

    The war market at the time was hot. Without the country sending 100k+ troops overseas it will be difficult for this company to succeed.


  2. "Good but Unstable - Uneven Employee Experiences - Both Good and Bad"

    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 Management

    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.
