    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    High pay for austere locations. They have the transition to a hostile environment down to a science.

    Cons

    Over-supervised and nit-picky. Rules must be followed regardless of how inane they are and how illogical they may be.

    Advice to Management

    Rehire those who already have training.

    Pros

    Steady work and descent pay, good shop environment in most locations.

    Management is horrible, to much favoritism. Upper management doesn't stand up for the workers. And to top it off they are hiring all Europeans, for the cheap labor.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing workers Fire management that is the problem, when the car doesn't drive straight, you check the driver before the wheels.

    It is one the growing and goal oriented company in the world .So,it should hire dedicated, trained and qualified workers. It would be good to replace the job for the workers if mission of the company is completed. I would recommend this company to a friend- I am optimistic about the outlook.

    Pros

    Good pay...pay on time...well-recognized company brand (could be a CON in certain aspects as well)

    Cons

    Recycle current employees over and over...many times outside/above their competency level...time with the organization weighs more heavily than expertise...not entirely accurate with all aspects of their contract (living conditions, length of contract, etc)...little-to-no advancement opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Get new blood into BD areas and listen to the advice of "new" folks...you're losing long-duration contracts because you are stuck in your old ways!
