    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.

    Ownership is a mess. Many reductions have placed a strain on the people and the systems where breakage is beginning to occur.

    Listen to the people who have been around a while and focus on key areas instead of jumping in all over the place. Have a strategy and stick to it. Try to maintain some continuity of leadership and strategy.
