    I worked at DynCorp International

    Pros

    It was a great opportunity to get my foot in the door for working abroad.

    Cons

    Definitely the "Good Ole Boys Club". Many of the higher ups didn't think you were able to do a job unless you were either a man or a retired LTC or higher in your branch of service. Due to this fact that if you didn't have military experience, you didn't understand how to properly manage a dept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit trying to run your overseas projects like the military. Run it like a business.

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, in processing, freedom to act without supervision.

    Cons

    Lack of communication about future contract status. Poor relationship with the military.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involving the company with the supported organization is critical. The company allowed it relationship to lapse. A direct quote from a U.S. Army Colonel who was my supervisor and was pleased with my performance - "DynCorp is the Enemy".

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is that you are getting paid no matter what happens outside the wire. As long as you work your 84 hours, they will pay you for them.

    Cons

    The leadership is terrible, they are double minded, most do not know anything about the job they are performing. The company does not treat its employees well, there is no time off, no sick days, no holidays and they wonder why people are exhausted and complaining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees like adults and not someone you despise. Listen to our ideas on how to improve things and dont shut us out. Allow us to have some time off even if its not paid so that we can regenerate our minds and bodies

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for growth and advancement if you apply yourself. This was in a warzone and the people for the most part were like family.

    Cons

    The biggest CON is that most of the upper and senior management were not competent in their position. Their lack of skills and competency crippled the operation in many ways... Bad decision!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bridge the gap between working projects HQ, and corporate for a smoother and seamless operation.

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

    Pros

    Serve and support our military and Department of State all over the world. Recognition to families that have lost ones that were DynCorp employees. Great people on the ground that work hard and love what they do. Hire a lot of former military.

    Cons

    At high levels of leadership, they don't follow their published values, it is mostly for show. Let go of good people and they retain the political ones and no employment security. Company is in turmoil due to poor leadership, a lot of been fired but seems as if some are still there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Private equity company, retain those who produce and don't get fooled by political and suit characters who tend to be all air about themselves.
