Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at DynCorp International full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Pay
Working with US and foreign military

Cons

Working 84 hours a week
Working in dangerous places of the world, such as Afghanistan
Management without the actual management experience, fired or transferred from other companies/locations, demoralizing the crew.
Extremely beurocratic way of doing things.
Promotion based uniformly on who you know and what friends you have - merit is at the bottom of the list.
Hiring of unqualified/inexperienced crew, who through connections and intimidation reach management positions.
Lots of harrassment and downrite racist behaviour towards racial and ethnic groups.

Advice to Management

Management in KBR brought the company down, and now they have all transferred to DynCorp.

    Advice to Management

    Have them at least complete a training course before taking the position. Also would be a good idea to have manager over personnel that can actually do the job of there staff.

    Pros

    A great opportunity to develop your team building skills, network with people in the same job skill sets. Pay and benifits are about average for the industry.

    Cons

    Higher management needs to quit being concerned with taking care of the "overhead" personnel and focus on the true money generators who are out in the "field" doing the actual work that is billed
