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

    Pros

    The pay wasn't as strong as, say, KBR and some of the other companies. However, you received a lot more of the freedoms you'd receive working a normal job.

    Cons

    You're not completely free. Having a family can be difficult. Hard to move up, depending on the project.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Our Owner and our Chairman/CEO are the best that I've worked for. They always seem to have the DI Star in mind when they must make those tough decisions regarding staffing. I have never seen the CEO unkind--firm, yes, demanding, yes, but kind.

    Cons

    The uncertainty for the company staff because of the uncertain win or lose in government contracting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more all-hands communication

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

    Pros

    Great pay, and experience! Raises were annually started off at $27.00/hr after one year of work and one raise I ended at $30/hr

    Cons

    The location of work was pretty bad, it was southern Maryland and the cost of living down there was outrageous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work was great while I was there, it isn't the normal professional work environment due to the majority of the people being prior military there is a bit of hazing going on at times.
