    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    International company. Government contractor. A good and long standing relationship with the military.

    Cons

    There's no downside for me personally. The dept of Dyncorp that I work for has been bought out by a new company.

    Advice to Management

    No advice that I can think of. I've worked at DynCorp at Andrews Air Force base for 15 yrs and have no complaints.

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not really any positives to this position

    Cons

    Pam Saenz is very controlling, micro manager, refuses to approve vacations for new employees, horrible group to work in, very low salary

    Advice to Management

    Look at the manager in the group, maybe she is the problem and reason people don’t stay long or won’t even accept offers

    Pros

    Flexibility and familiarity in position

    Cons

    Management fails to appreciate and develop from within

    Advice to Management

    Develop your people. This department is too concerned with a piece of paper (degree) to validate a person, rather than consistent performance, talent, and tenure. Instead of promoting from within, the management has brought in outside candidates which have failed over time.

    Pros

    Very high pay, you cannot find any other aircraft working pay like this in the area

    Pros

    Support the troops, work with veterans.

    Cons

    Terrible leadership. CEO and Aviation President need to go. Morale is at it's lowest. Attrition is high. Pay is terrible. No opportunity for promotion. Time to drain the swamp at DI. Benefits are terrible. Mandatory long hours. No raises.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people

    It's challenging and its keeps me on toes and it took me out of my comfort zone...I admire the people because they are willing to help anytime

    The management should try as much as possible to select African employees and even other countries as well...so as to interact with other tribes to learn from each other

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A decent company if you were E-5 and below and you need more experience in the field. A great stepping stone into another company. Decent pay. Lots of good people to work with.

    Cons

    You start out as a Aircraft Mechanic and there isn't a lot of room to move up(unless you were senior enlisted or you have a degree but that's any job). Its a smaller community in Pax so unless you know people or you have been around a while you will be a Mechanic for many years(unless above). The pay is decent but the locals know that and capitalize. You cant really blame them ,that's the nature of the beast. More of an area con than a company con.

    Advice to Management

    None really. Dyncorp has been good to me and my family. I do wish that we had some better benefits maybe matching 401k or better medical but that is between the union and the company. I have never been left in need and I can provide for my family with the opportunity I have been given.
