    I worked at DynCorp International (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-Workers were great people who truly care!

    Cons

    Company lacks the ability or leadership to move forward to the 21st century. Systems and process are over 20 years old tech. Instead, they throw people at problems, then lay them off once or twice a year as a replacement method from actually performance managing and rewarding top performers. High lack of mentorship, lack of job progression, focus or career path.

    Advice to Management

    get the stomach to centralize your systems, instead of wasting money on band-aids, performance manage your employees, and eliminate waste and manual effort. You would make more money in the long run.

    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
