    I worked at DynCorp International (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working on installations in hostile environments with US Forces on site for protection. Ability to get mail and Internet service was fairly decent. R&R every 120 days was very nice. Tax Free exemption up to the maximum allowable limit on salary. If you are up to it this is a great way to take care of a lot of financial responsible in a short amount of time legally.

    Cons

    Policy and procedures would change before there was an opportunity to see whether what was implemented would truly be effective or not.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the advice of the frontline managers more. If middle and senior management is ineffective time and time again re-assign them to a task they ccan handle and make way for personnel that can make the big decisions and execute in a timely and efficient manner.

    I worked at DynCorp International (Less than a year)

    Pros

    First, and foremost...You get paid on time, every time! In all of my time with Dyncorp, there were no problems with pay...ever. The logistical support was great. If you are out in the field, and are in need of anything, they made sure you had it ASAP.

    Cons

    It is a very large company, and at times you'll feel like a number. Also...Dyncorp is known to be "The Lowest Bidder", which is another way of saying the they are one of the lowest paying contracting companies out there.

    Advice to Management

    A person touch goes a long way.

    Pros

    Great pay, challenging work, privilege to serve on the team training nad mentoring the military leadership of the Afghan National Army.
