    "Very Challenging Business - But Opportunities For Improvement"

    Current Employee - Executive in McLean, VA
    Current Employee - Executive in McLean, VA

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    Great group of dedicated colleagues who are really focused on the mission of the customer. Our new CEO is a good fit for the company, but the leadership void created by parent company Cerberus took its toll over the past couple of years. There are some promising business prospects out there if the company can brand itself and right size properly.

    Cons

    Many good and talented people have left the company or been pushed out. The strategic advisers, industry and government SME's who are paid an exorbitant amount of money, have developed scant new business. The two Managing Directors that are seconded to DynCorp add little demonstrative value, do not take the time to listen or care about the input from others, are very difficult to work with to the point of being toxic, and consistently exhibit behaviors in direct contrast to company values. As a long time employee, some fundamental changes need to be made to ensure the future success of the company.

    R&R package leaves a lot to be desired when compared to other companies and not the highest paying for the same job working for another company with better benefits and pay.
