Pros

Times are tough so it is a paycheck. If you are politically savvy the environment could be right for you. If you like to travel to third world countries and carry firearms that's a plus.
There are a lot of good people in the company in lower management and the ground troops. Those people cannot be beat. If you work stateside you can't make as much money but you have less chance of getting taken out by a roadside bomb or bullets. So it's kind of a wash. Take out a real good life insurance policy for the family just in case.
If you like to be in meetings that are redundantly redundant, it's easy money there.

Cons

Ever since the company went public it has gone downhill. They even stripped the company picnic and Christmas party... and those were the only perks to begin with. After a large layoff if there was a grain of moral left it's gone now.
If you hate meetings there is a good shot you may not like the place.

Advice to Management

Managements hands are tied. The problems stem from the very top. There is a good reason the CEO/Chairman has a 17% approval and falling.

    Pros

    Working with different contracts. Travel.

    Cons

    It is no longer an employee company. DynCorp has gone through three company wide Reductions in Force RIFS this year. The focus was to lean the infrastructure as Bill Ballhaus states but the target was any employee who was at the top of their pay scale. All employees let go received two weeks pay and their benefits ended midnight the day they were walked out.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring Chiefs and Directors whose experience meets the job qualifications and not just someone whose salary fits the bill you want to pay.
