    I have been working at DynCorp International (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    company benefits not to bad, pay for my area pretty good, and can be a stable place if you are a good worker and follow all guidelines & SOP's. Absolutely loved this company for years.

    Cons

    Very discouraging company these past couple of years.
    It's very difficult to move up unless you know and are friendly with upper management, or you are new to the company. IE.(fresh out of the army, and even then normally a DynCorp employee helps that person get a job) after watching 7+ people get promoted before someone who has been wanting promoted and is qualified to be promoted through the upward mobility packet system, plus company seniority over those people that are placed above them kind of discourages people from staying with a company as a career choice.

    Advice to Management

    stick to the upward mobility packet system you put into place and stop listening to managers input on how well the temp they put into place is doing. Because in actuality it's the people under those people who do the job that should get the credit and the promo's.

    Pros

    My co-workers are fantastic. Most people I've met really care about our customers and their missions. So much potential for the company to excel at doing good work.

    Cons

    Chaos. Constant change. Lack of stability in the upper managerial levels. Disconnects between what the the "workers" actually do (and how they do it) and what the "managers" think they should be doing it (and how).

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ways of conducting business. Be open to real innovation. Be open.

    Not too many cons. Middle management tends to be inconsistent and not held accountable for management of their teams.

    Stand behind your employees in work practices, ensure all rules are enforced for everyone not just a select few. Follow through to the best of your ability on initiatives sent down to employees. Needs stronger and more consistent middle management. Needs more experienced contract management teams in various programs need to focus on standardizing the way contracts are managed
