    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (more than an 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.

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

    Pros

    If you are really in need of employment and can't find anything else then work here only to gain experience and then leave after a year. Otherwise, I don't recommend working here.

    Cons

    DI is top heavy and pay only its upper management personnel. They don't care about the support staff, often lose bids on proposal due to POOR PAST PERFORMANCE ratings, and has a bad reputation with the government. They are a sinking ship!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house!! of your upper management who have fat paychecks, stop hiring your siblings, and other family members and promote HONESTLY within the minorities who are qualified. Stop promoting those caucasians who are NOT qualified. Stop lying to the government!!!

    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.

    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
