    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.
