    Pros

    Family and Community Oriented company. Co-workers are a close knit group. Excellent recognition for employee performance. Focuses on Work-Life Balance and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Offers assistance and incentives for achieving personal goals. Excellent communication on health of the company from CEO.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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

    "Very Challenging Business - But Opportunities For Improvement"

    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.
