    Pros

    Decent wages, but only if you're not accounting for the horrendous/hostile work environment you have to endure to receive them.

    Cons

    Take your pick, as there are far too many to list.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management ("Management" is a stretch) is to actually hold the supervision you appoint accountable. All it takes is a review of Supervision's management style/practices to see that they are completely incompetent. They are completely encompassing the phrase "fake it 'till you make it." They have all come straight from active duty and attempt to run a civilian workplace as such. They do not hold themselves accountable for any transgressions and are utilizing "knee-jerk" management styles to attempt to fix problems without actually analyzing the root cause of said problems. This comes as no surprise because that would, ultimately, lead them back to themselves and they can never be the problem. My heart goes out to all to have to put up with this environment.

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    Work/life balance was good with interesting work and great co-workers who are team-players.

    Cons

    Negative, narrow-minded management with certain project managers at the top who are micro-managing, along with low salaries, and absolutely no room for growth. There may have been some racial-profiling there as well.

    Advice to Management

    Stop your micro-management, racial-profiling, and let hard workers get recognized, instead of brown-nosers, especially if you want to retain good talent.

    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 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.
