    Management have no clue what they are doing.its a total chaos. We are losing contract because some recruiters can't and will not be able to deliver results. A lot of nepotism still around.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Nothing at all. Working in a forced labor camp would be better.

    Cons

    Company treats people like cattle. Unless you are a pal or crony. Then you can break every rule and sop in the book and even get promoted for it.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say, like talking to a box of rocks. They don't care one bit. Employees mean nothing.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement, if you are willing to go anywhere.
    Although most employees are severely overworked, they are hard workers and team oriented.
    Everyone gets Merit, when there is one.

    Cons

    Continuous Restructuring and turn over at Senior Leadership level. The ones who stay, have no where to go. Gossip is rampant at all levels, mainly due to lack of downward communication.
    Merit program is so little it is almost insulting. One in last 4 years, and there is no differentiation for top performers. Promotions/raises have ridiculous limits and constraints, unless you're Senior Leadership.
    Absolutely no loyalty from Senior Leadership. You are just a number.

    Advice to Management

    Start over. Listen to your SMEs and quit embarrassing yourself, costing company money. Stand up for your people. Leadership is much more then just looking up at your boss for next title.

    Pros

    You will learned a lot about how not to treat people, and how not to run a team. You will also learned that some BIG pay checks are just not worth what you have to go through to get them.

    Cons

    Management had no moral compass. Discrimination and lying ran rampant among senior leaders. This company is burden on the military and all those who serve in uniform.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for the management. Some things you cant fix and the management at this company is one of those things.

    Pros

    There are endless amounts of opportunities to improve as a professional .
    The mid level management are great and do all they can to ensure a great work environment

    Cons

    Company in a downward spiral . Poor top level management and declining profitable opportunities. The defense industry as a whole is suffering due to limited funding from the U.S. Government and this doesn't bode well for the industry as a whole

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Pay is on time normally

    Cons

    HR team is unresponsive and senior leadership is the worst. If you have a concer you will either wait weeks for a response and more often than not no response. High turnover and higher layoffs with little to no notice. 3 CEO changes in 18 months. Unless you need it dontt bother. There are plenty of other contract companies out there

    Advice to Management

    Change HR leadership starting at the top then director level

    Pros

    If you are really in need of employment and can't find anything else then work here only to gain experience and then leave after a year. Otherwise, I don't recommend working here.

    Cons

    DI is top heavy and pay only its upper management personnel. They don't care about the support staff, often lose bids on proposal due to POOR PAST PERFORMANCE ratings, and has a bad reputation with the government. They are a sinking ship!

    Advice to Management

    Clean house!! of your upper management who have fat paychecks, stop hiring your siblings, and other family members and promote HONESTLY within the minorities who are qualified. Stop promoting those caucasians who are NOT qualified. Stop lying to the government!!!

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High salaries per experience and a ton of flex time during the week.

    Cons

    I had a manager who broke every rule on the social contract. I reported it to Ethics because it was getting out of hand. Ethics said, "yeah, there are some bad managers out there but just because he lies or treats you bad does not mean anything.. but I will talk to them about the internal training you aren't getting". I was given permission for training immediately afterwards and a couple weeks after that I was let go in a so called "lay-off"! I contacted Ethics regarding "retaliation" and they wouldn't respond for 6+ months. Later found out that my boss had lied again to Ethics in a cover-up so Ethics just left it at that. Would not look into the matter.
    Turnover is significant. More than any company I've ever seen. I had 7 different managers during my few years tenure. None of whom are with the company any more. Further, leadership portrays unethical standards in cost representation to the government.

    Advice to Management

    The right thing doesn't come from you.
