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

    Pros

    Many professionals involved in day-to-day operations. Excellent pay with great medical benefits.

    Cons

    Very few if any. Since DynCorp has a world-wide mission, many days and months away from family takes a small toll on family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. DynCorp is a strong company with a long tract history of satisfying the customer.

    I worked at DynCorp International

    Pros

    It was a great opportunity to get my foot in the door for working abroad.

    Cons

    Definitely the "Good Ole Boys Club". Many of the higher ups didn't think you were able to do a job unless you were either a man or a retired LTC or higher in your branch of service. Due to this fact that if you didn't have military experience, you didn't understand how to properly manage a dept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit trying to run your overseas projects like the military. Run it like a business.

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor for less than a 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".

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for 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

    Decent salary. Travel and training if it's within your job description.

    Cons

    Lack of communications between corporate and the 'folks in the field.' Educational benefits - yeah, if the class you're taking is looked upon as within your job scope, but highly subjective.
