    Pros

    Nothing much professional much about this company with such a management on Site and Head Office.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to bother how their employees are doing with such a low salary (pay cut also food allowance only R.O 23 ) with the new WRM III contract.

    Advice to Management

    Pay cut of almost 40 - 50% for Employees with winning of new contract of WRM III but also food allowance only R.O 23 for Asian work force is unacceptable and harassment.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    DynCorp won and took over the contract I was already on.

    Cons

    Problems with the website to enroll for benefits, taxes weren't taken out of paycheck, lack of response from corporate personnel to resolve the problems.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to the employees every once in a while and present yourself. I've been working on this contract for over 10 years, but now that DynCorp took it over, all management has changed and I don't know who is even running this thing.

    Pros

    Currently, I have no pros.

    Cons

    Health benefits cost way too much and spouses are not included unless they do not have access to healthcare. The morale is extremely low and management believes their people should be grateful they have jobs. Process change is needed, but either they don't want to change or they don't know how to implement it. So, they don't and tasks are left undone. Doing more with less is the vision, but the worker bees are tired and burned out.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your people and listen to them. They have great ideas. Remember: your people will make you look good, but its a two-way street. Learn how to lead and grow your people, not just manage them. Subscribe to the Harvard Business Review for leadership methods that work, because what you're doing is causing people to leave. Also, consider what it take to be competitive in recruiting. The millennials have hit the workforce and they will not tolerate a lack of innovation or opportunities to make an impact. The good 'ole boy mentality will no longer work. Remember: loyalty is earned.

    Pros

    Good working group, very experienced and knowledgeable subject matter experts, company has new CEO that is innovative, expanding business platforms, and looking to increase overseas partnerships.

    Cons

    CEO, CFO, VP and Upper management are discontented from middle and lower management and staff personnel. On-site visits are rehearsed, political, and disingenuous. High turnover, low morale, and no promotion opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Start investing in your number one assets "employees". Perform focus group with CEO and CFO and middle and low staff management personnel. It will be an open opener for Lou!!
