    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    From what I've seen, once you are placed in a position, the program managers really do their best to take care of you, asking often how the work environment you are in is treating you, asking for feedback and just generally checking in on you

    Cons

    The hiring process is very confusing with all the different people you talk to and similar information all the different people require and they do not pay as well as other contracting companies in the same area doing the same job.

    Advice to Management

    I understand contracting is a bid for the lowest bidder kind of game, but when you are placing people in jobs, especially in high cost of living areas, you can't expect them to stay very long when other opportunities open for them. Your high turnover is due to your low balling of offers.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    While everyone's experience is different, these are my opinions.
    -Manager is awesome. Motivating, helpful, understanding. Best I've ever had.
    -Flexible schedule allows to have the work/life balance I need.
    -Opportunities to grow and move up/around.
    -Tuition reimbursement is a plus, but you have to be here two years afterward otherwise you have to pay it back.. so pretty standard.
    -Pay is competitive, not as great as Lockheed, L3, Raytheon, etc., but close. And there are many things that make up for the small pay shortfall.

    Cons

    -As with any government contractor, layoffs can be high depending on what department you are in. Luckily, I am in a pretty secure area.
    -Health insurance is now ONLY an HSA plan as of this year.

    Advice to Management

    Do some company wide events or lunches every once in a while. Everyone is so separated by program and department I haven't hardly met anyone outside of my group. Would be nice to have a little more of a team feeling. Other than that, keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Good pay and good co-workers. Everyone willing to help each other out.

    Cons

    Management extremely disorganized and hires totally unqualified people just to fill manning positions. Decisions are often made and reversed in the same day without being communicated between shifts. Different parts of the contract are not followed correctly or are omitted depending on what is convenient to management.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together.

    Good company for the type of service it performs.

    Management in Texas needs to be monitored more aggressively. They have too much power over the day to day operations and general employees are not taken care of properly.

    Advice to Management

    Executives should question management more often.
