    Pros

    Its an ok job. Lots of former military doing what they did in the service.

    Cons

    It is very difficult to advance. Someone needs to leave or be fired before you get a promotion. Moving up is very difficult.

  3. "Finance and Accounting"

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, average working environment. Highly educated and very intelligent people.

    Cons

    You either fit in or you don't. If you don't, you're doomed. Zero instruction, no direction and if you ask for help, you're considered stupid. It was like working with a bunch of 8th grade girls that run around whispering and stabbing each other in the back instead of professional, educated people.

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn't matter, they wouldn't listen anyway.

    I worked at DynCorp International (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, Good hours, good equipment

    Cons

    Benefits high, Not very undersanding for time off (p-time), buddy system management, if your not 'in' you never advance

    Advice to Management

    lose the buddy system and quit micro managing. And when an Employee cant pass a security clearnace a simple NACI, they shouldnt be employed and quit inventing positions for ones like that. Im sure you know of whom I speak as he is upper management and can't even get on base..

    "Very Challenging Business - But Opportunities For Improvement"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Executive in McLean, VA
    Current Employee - Executive in McLean, VA

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    Great group of dedicated colleagues who are really focused on the mission of the customer. Our new CEO is a good fit for the company, but the leadership void created by parent company Cerberus took its toll over the past couple of years. There are some promising business prospects out there if the company can brand itself and right size properly.

    Cons

    Many good and talented people have left the company or been pushed out. The strategic advisers, industry and government SME's who are paid an exorbitant amount of money, have developed scant new business. The two Managing Directors that are seconded to DynCorp add little demonstrative value, do not take the time to listen or care about the input from others, are very difficult to work with to the point of being toxic, and consistently exhibit behaviors in direct contrast to company values. As a long time employee, some fundamental changes need to be made to ensure the future success of the company.


  7. "Large Organization"

    Former Employee - Hazardous Material Specialist in Poca, WV

    I worked at DynCorp International (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay and a chance to travel. Some down-time to work on personal items of interest. Many types of positions available. A chance to meet some interesting people, and great for creating a network.

    Cons

    Most of these positions should not to be confused with a lifetime career. I would only recommend these positions to people that are looking for some great pay for a short duration of employment. Austere environment type of living.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that are able to perform their duties based upon their skill set and experience, and not by whom they know.

    Pros

    Decent pay, good people for the most part, easy work.

    Cons

    R&R package leaves a lot to be desired when compared to other companies and not the highest paying for the same job working for another company with better benefits and pay.
