    I worked at DynCorp International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Many of the supervisors are top notch and supportive of their people. Though contracting can be difficult to get into, DynCorp's size dictates that they have to hire more personnel than their competitors. Wide variety of contracts and locations to work. Know what you are getting into, especially in war zones.

    Cons

    Though well paid, they pay lower than their competitors. Some supervisors seem just to be filling space, not in contact, except email, with their people; all they do is forward email up and down the line. DynCorp, at least overseas, is not supportive of family at all. You are expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get supervision into the field, with their people, if you can.

    Pros

    Pay and uplifts, Tax free.

    Management is power hungry No personal time off schedule except R&R. No concerns for motivating the team. Just act as if they do.

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

    Pros

    Anytime you're working in a war zone you become a family with those on the ground.

    Cons

    This company hired much less qualified personnel who once worked for me into the lead positions that I held with other companies doing identical work. Military experience takes heavy preference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is legal but hiring ANY group over qualifications, experience, past successes will weaken the company in the long run.
