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

    Pros

    i believe in our mission to support the military and other government entities. Benefits have generally been good. Work location is okay. Plenty of parking.

    Cons

    We were too tied to military efforts so with the drawn down in Iraq and Afghanistan we've had to lay off a large number of employees.

    After letting go a long term CEO, we hired someone who last two weeks and now have an interim CEO! All within the last 3 months. Too much upheaval. Some benefits have been scaled back. No increase in two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify our portfolio. Listen to employee suggestions.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in `Alījān (Afghanistan)

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

    Pros

    Compensation is very nice if you don't have an issue working 12 hr days, 7 days a week. They do have quite a few positions available and you are able to apply to another position for advancement. As long as you do your job, you will shine among the masses, as there are many third country nationals. The work is very easy.

    Cons

    Getting proper support is a constant battle since the DOD runs many of the operations, and the contracts state who is supposed to be responsible for a majority of the support. There is a quote "Do the right thing ALWAYS" As a worker, it appears many times that the quote is expected of them but not the upper echelon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company values are for everyone. Step in and make the necessary changes in order to give employees a better work/life balance. The workforce structure can be changed to enhance the work experience abroad. Possibly try some short time off on given days.....eg. 2 to 3 hours on scheduled days, just to break up the drone effect. It could be 1 day per week and would help a great deal.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, Good work/life balance, Good benefits.

    Cons

    Neglected to build good teamwork among immediate teams and cross functional teams. Need to review policies on bullying, diversity and proper treatment of co-workers (constant bickering, picking on individuals, arguing among workers). Good employees will not want to stay here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the egos at the door. Just because they have years of experience doesn't mean they can treat people any way they want. Make corrections immediately with employees and build a team and don't allow certain individuals to break the team down.

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

    Pros

    The New leadership is much more professional, trustworthy, and focused. While the company has challenges, it feels like we have actual leadership now. The prior management was largely focused on friendships with each other, not business, and the results show the damage -- the only people hired or that prospered were friends of the CEO-- now, merit and competence seems to count. the new management is much, much better.

    Cons

    The damage from prior management will take months, if not years, to reverse. Over the past 2 years, the company was eroded-- it will take time to overcome the prior leadership dysfunction. that said, I am confident that it will be turned around.

    Pros

    Get your foot in the door for contracting, the company doesn't care about you or your bills.

    Cons

    Management, no room for growth, HR tells you one thing and then you have to do different even though its unethical.
