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

    Pros

    Other than the pay this is a HORRIBLE place to work. I am still here for the pay

    Cons

    Management knows NOTHING! Nobody listens to anything others have to say.

    Advice to Management

    RESPECT your employees and maybe you would be able to retain some real talent!

    Pros

    Cannot think of any positives here

    Upper Management blames middle management for issues and problems to protect themselves. No loyalty for anyone especially those of lessor position

    Pros

    Nothing at all. Working in a forced labor camp would be better.

    Cons

    Company treats people like cattle. Unless you are a pal or crony. Then you can break every rule and sop in the book and even get promoted for it.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say, like talking to a box of rocks. They don't care one bit. Employees mean nothing.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, the same pay as the market in fort worth

    Cons

    No strategic planning, Management from the leads to the directors are not eligible to be leaders, a lot of nepotism, worse place for your morale. company promote mediocre personal and let go hard working individuals. some recruiters are not even qualified for the position.
    The company is falling parts because management don't think ahead, they are still in the 1970s era and much more to say.lay offs started in 2013 and they just let go 40 more today, what a shame no progress..

    Advice to Management

    Dyncorp need a change of management and bring a fresh team from outside to overseas the changes that the CEO wants to implement , the old good boys club need to go for DynCorp to survive this though market

    I worked at DynCorp International (More than a year)

    Pros

    There wasn' t any jobs back home so I had to do what I had to do to save my house. The only Pros. was I saved my house.

    Cons

    Worked 84 hours a week or more. No time and half for anything worked over 8 or 40 hours a week. The rate of pay was horrible I felt a shame to tell anyone how many hours a week I was working and how much money I was bring home. I put my life on the line to work in a war zone and got paid peanut shells. DynCorp has no respect for there employee's. The health insurance was so expensive I had to go with out for me and my family.

    Advice to Management

    Electricians need to be treated with respect. Electricians should be paid very well for the knowledge and the skills that we have. Electricians should be paid over 100k for 40 hours and time and a half after 8. Saturdays should be paid time and half. Sundays paid double time. Holidays paid double time plus 8 hour straight time. What can you do in America with out electricity ? Nothing. America would be shut down if the electric was turn off. Electricity is the most dangerous profession there is.
