Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Intelligent and helpful co-workers
Individual offices
Free parking
Good 401K plan, decent healthcare coverage
Bonus cash awards on a quarterly basis available to all employees (based on merit, project success)

Cons

When Balhaus left as CEO, the new management that came in wasn't nearly as good. There appeared to be a lot of alpha males in senior leadership, with the exception of a few areas.
None of DynCorp's employees seemed happy to be working there. Overall morale was rather low.
Some unexpected layoffs

Advice to Management

A little bit of personality and gender diversity couldn't hurt. Speak honestly during town hall meetings, people/employees know when you are not telling the truth.

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Tried to do things differently than KBR; only a few previous KBR in Program Management at start of LOGCAP IV; old KBR Program Management has now taken over.

    Cons

    Failed to learn or implement positive aspects of KBR LOGCAP strategies; old KBR Program Management has now taken over. Needs new business; funding to LOGCAP is drying up.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out business development strategy; put the right, qualified management in the right positions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is good, employees work hard and do care. Ability to dive into new technology or philosophy is very good.

    Cons

    Management, Directors, CEO are horrible. They Promote a system of core values, but ultimately fail to live up to these same values. The same people who promote this system could care less about their employees. They do not listen to employees nor do they have any rational thoughts and have absolutely zero leadership skills. Same DI for the last several years. Nothing has changed.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to people who pump money into DI. Get rid of DI Ceo, Get rid of senior leadership. Start a fresh group of leaders who believe what they put forth and deliver results. Management is in meetings all day long and is never visible, they have no clue to what happens at DI.
