    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 worked at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    Benefits and pay scale are above average. I worked out of country and had a small problem with logistics at first. Upper management was quick to help solve my problem. Good company to work for.

    Cons

    None comes to mind. I did hear of a co-worker having some issues with a medical claim. Pay could always be a little more, especially in a hostile environment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat employees with respect and help them whenever you can. I would love to join the team again if the right contract or position opens up.

    They low balled the contract. They have took away too much from the workers.
