    Pros

    The company is full of intelligent, helpful, team players.

    Cons

    The company has made benefit cuts to compete with this poor economy. I hope once the economy turns around the company will remember that the employees gave up benefits in bad time hoping to have them returned with good times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to coach and mentor your employees, they are an investment.

    DynCorp Intl CFTs NAVAIRGSE Maint/Support CSL-1 EL SALVADOR was good in the early years when the team was fresh in 2001.

    Pros

    Nice people, compensation is decent, good work-life , no personal growth

    Cons

    Low employee moral, no raises in several years..at least let employees wear jeans for moral, leadership is old school, benefits USED to be good, not anymore. Office culture is boring compared to new trendier companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on employee moral with little things that go a long way.

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time

    Pros

    It is an international company, perhaps the adventure to other countries, cultures, however the market is changing, expect a reduction in positions overall.

    Cons

    Lack of response from headquarters, even after I emailed the CEO about the issue. I requested a change of work area from local management, that was denied. It was a health hazard to all workers, including other military groups, and contract company employees. I heard in the aftermath, people have issues talking, are coughing, have headaches. Why do large corporation, supposedly experts in the field lack adequate procedures to prevent future health issues that their employees may experience. Not my idea of a company with great values, and the values they say is there operational foundation.

    No training in my field of IT. Corporate headquarters was not timely in IT issues, in adding support to overseas base. The management does not have the skill or the knowledge to adequately create an efficient and effective IT service level. No training in my field of IT. Corporate headquarters was not timely in IT issues, in adding support to overseas base. The IT management, locally and at the headquarters, does not have the skill or the knowledge to adequately create an efficient and effective IT service level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I advised the management, never heard back. The CEO was replaced, however I doubt it was due to my email. Does management read this.... I doubt it.

    Workers make companies money, why allow future suffering from health issues?

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is OK.
    Because of a Twenty (20) word minumim I need to make up additional pro items. I wish I could make something up.

    Cons

    A PMO office that feels that the employees in the field work for them and not the other way. PTO is not very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach your PMO office how business works. Do not let your ego determine who is fired. The ego in the PMO office lost thousands of dollars in profit, erased goodwill with teh customer and any future customer input will prevent a follow on contract.
