    Former Employee - Aircraft Mechanic in Kabul (Afghanistan)

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

    Pros

    The pay was excellent. When I got paid on time I like seeing that large check. I also met some really nice people

    Cons

    Getting paid every 28 days. Afghanistan- Sometimes you didn't get paid or there was a mistake on your check. If you were lucky, the would fix it 28 days later, or 56 days later, or 84 days later. Is that even legal? Lot of back stabbing. Team lead, site superviser, TI are the jobs people fight for.
    Poor leader ship and poor support. Ole boy network is alive as well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If it walks like a duck and smells like smoke.... well you know the rest

    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.
