    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    IF you're prior military, (aviation) It's a simple and smooth transition. I belive that with just military experience, DynCorp International has some of the best pay on Fort Campbell, and with the current cost of living the pay is really good. The medical benefits are also really good compared to other companies from what I hear.

    Cons

    Sometimes I hear that theres too much overhead in certain areas, and there is also very little to no room for professional growth or career advancement. If you were an aircraft machanic in the military then you'll most likley be an aircraft machanic with Dyncorp forever. And you run into the "ho hum" slavery of doing the very same thing everyday for the rest of your life.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell them to not be so greedy during the tough times.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you like travel, DynCorp is the place to be.
    My position offered quite a variety of work, and therefore wasn't the same old drudge.
    The 401k match is the best I have seen.

    Cons

    A politically based advancement program.
    People I saw promoted hadn't the vaguest idea of the type of work they were to manage.
    A co-worker tried to nominate another co-worker for a job well done. The manager over the area blocked the nomination because it would demoralize the rest of the team.This sort or petty nonsense is an every day occurrence.
    Upper management gives the "our employees are our most valued asset." line, but it's is utter drivel.
    An completely useless HR department when it comes to dealing with problem co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Take the "our employees are our most valued asset" line to heart instead of treating them as one of your expendable pieces of equipment.
