    I worked at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    401K and paid time off. Being able to work with good people at the NASA facility at Ellington Field. Customer oriented.

    Cons

    Not an employee oriented company. Fail to recognized outstanding work or employees with years of knowledge and experience. Quick to fire or let key personnel that were critical to the contract walk away.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees that have more experience than you do working the contract and allow them to do their jobs in a safe and hostile free environment.

    Pros

    You will learned a lot about how not to treat people, and how not to run a team. You will also learned that some BIG pay checks are just not worth what you have to go through to get them.

    Cons

    Management had no moral compass. Discrimination and lying ran rampant among senior leaders. This company is burden on the military and all those who serve in uniform.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for the management. Some things you cant fix and the management at this company is one of those things.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Close to home thats about it!

    Cons

    Corporate has a high turnover they are difficult to deal with. Dont expect to get paid equally women make alot less than the men do. Also do 3 times the work as managers and get paid less. Union workers are lazy most of the workforce sits all day doing nothing, those are the first to file a grievance when they cant get there way. Accounts payable is awful. Supply Chain has made it so difficult for the local suppliers to do business with you. The DI Star is a joke noone adheres to it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting the good ones leave! Pay the women equally! Stop lettin gpeople go and piling their work on other people.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement, if you are willing to go anywhere.
    Although most employees are severely overworked, they are hard workers and team oriented.
    Everyone gets Merit, when there is one.

    Cons

    Continuous Restructuring and turn over at Senior Leadership level. The ones who stay, have no where to go. Gossip is rampant at all levels, mainly due to lack of downward communication.
    Merit program is so little it is almost insulting. One in last 4 years, and there is no differentiation for top performers. Promotions/raises have ridiculous limits and constraints, unless you're Senior Leadership.
    Absolutely no loyalty from Senior Leadership. You are just a number.

    Advice to Management

    Start over. Listen to your SMEs and quit embarrassing yourself, costing company money. Stand up for your people. Leadership is much more then just looking up at your boss for next title.

    I worked at DynCorp International (More than a year)

    Pros

    There wasn' t any jobs back home so I had to do what I had to do to save my house. The only Pros. was I saved my house.

    Cons

    Worked 84 hours a week or more. No time and half for anything worked over 8 or 40 hours a week. The rate of pay was horrible I felt a shame to tell anyone how many hours a week I was working and how much money I was bring home. I put my life on the line to work in a war zone and got paid peanut shells. DynCorp has no respect for there employee's. The health insurance was so expensive I had to go with out for me and my family.

    Advice to Management

    Electricians need to be treated with respect. Electricians should be paid very well for the knowledge and the skills that we have. Electricians should be paid over 100k for 40 hours and time and a half after 8. Saturdays should be paid time and half. Sundays paid double time. Holidays paid double time plus 8 hour straight time. What can you do in America with out electricity ? Nothing. America would be shut down if the electric was turn off. Electricity is the most dangerous profession there is.

    Pros

    Paid housing, insurance and company vehicle.

    Leadership lacks integrity and upper leadership tries to cover up illegal activity.

    Advice to Management

    Hire personnel that have a stellar military back ground not folks that were forced out of the military.
