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

    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.

    I worked at DynCorp International

    Pros

    work ethics, respector of employees,protection from outsiders,good co-ordination of duties and responsibilities, no segregation at work place, respect to each others culture and religion

    Cons

    weather conditions can at times go to extremes therefore you have to cope and also there are posibilities of rocket attacks and with proper trainings then you are able to avoid being a casuality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To consider in future a percentage of flat rate on each empoyees salary

    Former Contractor - Project Lead in `Alījān (Afghanistan)

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

    Pros

    Company support and assistance. Training was a minimum, but we were heading into a combat zone as civilians and a very fluid work environment. I will never be able to express my gratitude to the management and support personnel of DynCorp.

    Cons

    support for family in the states, especially for spouses. minimum understanding of the tax implications of promotion through the DynCorp system.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Fort Worth, TX (US)
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Fort Worth, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    Working out of Fort Worth office provided good sr. leadership visibility. Very patriotic company and does a great job recognizing veterans and their contractors operating in harms way. Programs are not very technically complex but the missions are unique and can't help but provoke a strong sense of patriotism. Program locations around the world provide interesting travel opportunities (Afghanistan, Iraq, GCC states) for those who enjoy frequent travel. The former CEO did a good job creating an intentional culture and reshaping the mindset of some leaders. Have opportunities to wear many hats if you are motivated. Like most places, your experience will largely be shaped by your boss and immediate peers.

    Cons

    Constant redirection is frustrating and makes it difficult to get anything done. Often seemed like just when started to get traction, the direction would change. Reinvent the same wheel over again in every different color... Leadership was slow to make strategic decisions; No raises for last 3 years...although understandable given the financial pressures.
    Although much of old boys club has been weeded out, some leaders still promote and reward unprofessional, incompetent, and/or hostile behavior, which often isn't addressed until something blows up. Very little work-life balance...everything is needed and needed now mindset, just so it can sit around and languish (for months, even years) waiting for senior leadership sign off. Virtually no automation...surprising for a company this large. Very poor communication...the oldest/largest "start up" I've worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management has a tendency to shoot the messenger so they miss out on the truth from the people who care, and promote the political animals with CYA mindsets instead. Est by example a culture that advocates and rewards truth vs. political expedience. Create formalized succession programs/career development.... Address employee concerns re: company health head on so you don't lose the good people to the frequent layoffs....pull the layoff band aide off at once vs. frequent quarterly/semi-annual mass layoffs that hurt morale.

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for Dyn-corp got me my foot in the door for being able to transition to a better security contracting companies.

    Cons

    They try to screw you every chance they get and were not helpful with any problems that arose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look out for all employees on every level. Even just showing an effort to help employees will increase moral which in turn will increase productivity.
