    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor (less than an 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 team leads are good first line managers. Working with team mates if the best part of the job.

    Cons

    Dyncorp has very little concern for employees. When complaints about recent 60% pay cut were voiced! management related they had hundreds of propel to take out place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instructional knowledge is something you should try to hang on to. The new contract in Palestine will go into default, can't run two sites at 30% staffing

    Got to do the job I had in the USAF for a civilian company.

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor

    Pros

    Good pay, can do the same job you had in the military.

    Cons

    Qatar sort of sucks, and not having SOFA status as a civilian in Qatar makes you a 2nd class citizen with no equal rights who are regarded as gods by the police.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be "my daddy", I am a grown man. Micromanagement sucks.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (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.

    Pros

    I learned alot but ...........

    Cons

    .............not a minutes rest. 7/12s. Lousy accomodations. Always the worst on FOB. Management, all former KBR didnt seem to learn much from LOGCAP III. Bad morale (QEST). Overworked, stress out the ears, mind numbing paperwork. QEST auditors are disrespected and hated by all and the hostility wears on you.Makes you hostile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How bout a day off. Better living quarters. Not enough attention to mental health and stress. A very passive approach. People suffer in silence. How bout some real MWR. Organize events instead of just setting up tents.General order #1 sucks. Beer making kits should be distributed to all.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, some opportunity if you are former military and know how to be a political animal.

    Cons

    Top leadership is fluid, 3 CEOs in 4 years, layoffs are frequent, no pay raises no matter how well you perform, "You get to keep your job"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother, they wouldn't listen.
