    Pros

    Seems to be winning again and fixing the former management team's mess-- the damage was huge. No more Flippen behavior courses and other wasteful projects that added nothing-- all gone and repairs underway.

    Cons

    The CEO needs to communicate substantially more and be project presence.Tell the company where we are and where we are going. He needs to visit offices outside of Virginia. He needs to convince us that he is prepared to lead the company through the transformation back to being strong and tell how how he plans to do it and how we can help. This is a big problem, no communication , no staff meetings-- just a back hole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO needs lead.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The salary was outstanding and was delivered on time every pay day.

    Cons

    Under my program, we were only allowed to have 14 days off per year which included travel time. The flight from Afghanistan to the US typically takes about 24+ hours so you lose a day or two of your vacation time.
