    Pay on time and that's about it

    Pros

    Nothing at all. Working in a forced labor camp would be better.

    Cons

    Company treats people like cattle. Unless you are a pal or crony. Then you can break every rule and sop in the book and even get promoted for it.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say, like talking to a box of rocks. They don't care one bit. Employees mean nothing.

    RESPECT your employees and maybe you would be able to retain some real talent!

    Pros

    The best reason to work for DynCorp International is by far the compensation given compared to jobs in the field of law enforcement.

    Cons

    Management is extremely incompetent. Employees are treated as numbers and not people. Management routinely lies to employees about any and everything. Management fosters an attitude of "window or isle seat". This means that if you continue voicing your concerns, you will soon be choosing a "window or isle seat" on your flight home after you are fired.

    Advice to Management

    Work on truthful communication with employees. Do not make up answers to important questions simply because you don't know the answer. Tell the employees the truth not what you think they want to hear. Also, in Afghanistan, too many decisions are made by people in Kabul who have no idea that there is a war raging in other parts of the country. Seek input from employees from these areas and make decisions based on the particular area they are in, rather than making blanket decisions that do not work in all parts of the country.

    Pros

    Good pay considering the economy...good 401(k) if you can stand to stick around long enough for it to pay off.

    Cons

    Dyncorp likes to squeeze their employee dry...you're just a warm body to fill a slot.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! Your company is being run into the ground by the "good old boy" system...promote your friends and run off everyone else. You are going to lose good employees.

    Pros

    Salary was ok compared to other companies. Always paid on time.

    Cons

    Long, long, hours. Purchasing Manager was not suited for leadership. Incredible workload with not enough staff. Manager did not seem to care about his people he just wanted the work to get done. They operate in dangerous countries.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better. They are your best asset.
