    It brought a lot of confidence and motivation to me personally. I had the opportunity of having a good manager too

    The trainings were adequate but not frequent enough for the whole team to benefit from it.

    I have been working at DynCorp International

    Pros

    The company does not have very many 'pros.' When you are working a contract for this company, you are only a number to which they must pay an income.

    Cons

    No consistent raises and/or incentives. On exit after company lost its recompete bid, it used underhanded tactics to give employees less of their hard earned income due to a 'last-day=first day of pay-period' so no matter how many hours of 'authorized' overtime the employee worked, they received 8 hours of pay! Then, during the next to last pay period, the company did NOT pay out EARNED VACATION TIME! Unsat!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You might want to NOT pinch pennies with departing employees who have earned you very GREAT profits throught their tireless efforts! Gives your company a very cheap appearance!

    Pros

    It was a good place to work Nice living conditions and such

    Cons

    they contractors were starting to be forced to live with third country nationals so DynCorp could save money. US contractors had different benefits' and could not enjoy them because of the living conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't allow Money to make or influence your future issues.

    I worked at DynCorp International

    Pros

    I really liked working there, especially because it was in the military camps, I felt secured despite working in a very hostile country

    Cons

    The LogcapIV was coming to an end thus most camps were forced to close down as the military were moving out of Afghanistan. This led to most of workers loosing there jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To consider re- hiring former employees in case another opportunities occurs
