    I worked at DynCorp International

    Pros

    I really liked working there, especially because it was in the military camps, I felt secured despite working in a very hostile country

    Cons

    The LogcapIV was coming to an end thus most camps were forced to close down as the military were moving out of Afghanistan. This led to most of workers loosing there jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To consider re- hiring former employees in case another opportunities occurs

    DynCorp Kuwait was a good experience. But it depends on management, which seems to be a rotating door...

    Pros

    money was good, living conditions were great for the employees in the southern region. not so good for the employees in the northern region.

    Cons

    not many cons... there is always room to complain about management, but what company can you find room to complain about the management. I would suggest working here.

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    When working on a base supported by dyncorp the facilities were adequate and well maintained. The management was easy to contact if needed.

    Cons

    The isn't very many state side positions available when you redeploy so expect to either stay deployed or look for work else where.

    Pros

    It is a corporation that has been a leading aviation service provider for many years. This business line has performed well for several years.

    Cons

    The business systems are eith antiquated or non-existent. There seems to be a lack of business vision outside the Government Services Industry which is a well that is dry at the moment. Much instability at the top of the corporation undergoing three CEO changes in the last 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek a CEO that has a robust businesss vision in the commercial market rather than keeping eggs in the same Government Services Industry basket.
