    I worked at DynCorp International (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working on installations in hostile environments with US Forces on site for protection. Ability to get mail and Internet service was fairly decent. R&R every 120 days was very nice. Tax Free exemption up to the maximum allowable limit on salary. If you are up to it this is a great way to take care of a lot of financial responsible in a short amount of time legally.

    Cons

    Policy and procedures would change before there was an opportunity to see whether what was implemented would truly be effective or not.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the advice of the frontline managers more. If middle and senior management is ineffective time and time again re-assign them to a task they ccan handle and make way for personnel that can make the big decisions and execute in a timely and efficient manner.

    Pros

    Opportunity for personal and professional growth if you work for the right team or program. Compensation is fair, benefits are fair.

    Cons

    Government contracting is a cyclical industry and is currently struggling with wars winding down, government shutdowns etc. Work-life balance depends on your department or program. Layoffs have been quarterly and raises have not been given the last 3 years. Way too many VP's that you never see and wonder what they do all day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chasing every bright, shiny object. This company needs long-term vision. The next time you win a wind-fall of a contract, consider using some of the profit to invest in your systems, processes and people instead of slapping each other on the back and lining every executive's pockets with bonuses. Create a scalable work-force so you don't have to do lay-offs every 3 months which keep workers in perpetual fear of losing their jobs.
