A very good company to work for.

Aircraft Mechanic (Current Employee)
Frankfurt, Brandenburg (Germany)

I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 10 years

ProsDynCorp has limitless opportunities' to advance and become a team. DynCorp has many good guidelines and policies that keep in line with current mandatory procedures within the aviation community. Lots of good folks to work with at lower level maintenance.

ConsManagement most of the time seems to pick out younger inexperience folks to run maintenance of which they know little about. Although companies need to have a certain amount of younger workers with good ideals these folks need to have a certain amount of mentor ship with more experience and expertise.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet more experience workers run the day to day business of good company practices while offering incentives to mentor and teach younger workers to carry on the good name of the company and ensure each and everyone of us understands what the company is all about.

Good learning experience and good money gained.

Senior Recruiter (Former Employee)

I worked at DynCorp International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood money and experience gained.

ConsCut throat Management. Very cold on how they lay you off after giving 100% and considered a top recruiter in the company. Watch you back with this company.

Advice to Senior ManagementYes, its about the money but....the way you treat your employees it should not be a sweat shop and the good old boy system you have in place. Should be a real Team environment not the authoritarian management style.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not the best ran company from the operational point of view. Too many unqualified people in key positions at this place

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Kandahar (Iran)

I have been working at DynCorp International as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThe money is decent compared to what you can make in the US right now.

ConsTime away from family can be an issue for some. 30 days paid vacation at reduced pay. R&R system

Advice to Senior ManagementThe good ole boy network is in full effect with LOGCAP IV. Exactly what actual experience or training is required to be a manager/supervisor. The inmates are running the asylum.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Microcosm of a world of cultural contribution and service.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsIt has been my experience that there were a lot of good people working together that didn't mind getting their hands dirty for the good of the team, it was different at every FOB but there were enough positive people at each, to make a difference.

ConsSadly, as the case with other large employers, top management is mostly unaware of the issues that first line supervisors report to their managers, or so it appears because when you request a particular enabler, it is because its value or use in the field has been recognized as a force multiplier at a cost that is minimal compared to it overall value.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be to the advantage of any organization to seek out the information that only those that are in contact with specific issues are aware of. It's sort of like a minor leak in your tires but instead of dealing with it in the present, it's put off until it becomes an issue that cannot be ignored. Usually, at the time that it's condition becomes a priority, something else has become just as important but now you have to split your resources to remedy both with little to no margin left to handle the daily requirements.

Great company at times. The program / management team an employee has will either make you love or hate the company.

Supervisor (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood people, strong values, decent benefits, competitive pay, military / vet friendly, branching into commercial contracts in addition to government contracts.

ConsLimited options for promotions and employee development. HR policies seem contradictory. Company owners have changed the way enterprise functions.. and it hasn't benefited the employees at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your current people rather than bringing on new VPs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
