    Pros

    The team leads are good first line managers. Working with team mates if the best part of the job.

    Cons

    Dyncorp has very little concern for employees. When complaints about recent 60% pay cut were voiced! management related they had hundreds of propel to take out place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instructional knowledge is something you should try to hang on to. The new contract in Palestine will go into default, can't run two sites at 30% staffing

    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.

    Pros

    Lots of work to do. The people are great and you get to help those that serve this great country.

    Cons

    Cerberus (owner) is killing the company since they keep trying to bring in commercial best practices in the a government / military world. It just doesn't work.

    Also teams are too lean as it stands. Once LOGCAP goes away the company will be hurting. Plus they are one huge contract away from imploding since they barely have the staff to keep the lights on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, many have which been with the company for over 10 years. Also, get away from Cerberus as fast as you can or they will totally sink the ship and alot of good people will loose their jobs.

    Pros

    I learned alot but ...........

    Cons

    .............not a minutes rest. 7/12s. Lousy accomodations. Always the worst on FOB. Management, all former KBR didnt seem to learn much from LOGCAP III. Bad morale (QEST). Overworked, stress out the ears, mind numbing paperwork. QEST auditors are disrespected and hated by all and the hostility wears on you.Makes you hostile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How bout a day off. Better living quarters. Not enough attention to mental health and stress. A very passive approach. People suffer in silence. How bout some real MWR. Organize events instead of just setting up tents.General order #1 sucks. Beer making kits should be distributed to all.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, some opportunity if you are former military and know how to be a political animal.

    Cons

    Top leadership is fluid, 3 CEOs in 4 years, layoffs are frequent, no pay raises no matter how well you perform, "You get to keep your job"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother, they wouldn't listen.

    A Large company with varying job opportunities in the defense industry

    Pros

    As a foreign national working for an international company, it was a good overall experience. Lots of learning areas on the job. International work exposure. New cultures. Fantastic.

    Cons

    Poor pay for foreign nationals (FN) employees. Obvious difference in the treatment of US citizens and FN especially those from africa. Long hours of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more job opportunities to Foreign Nationals from Africa.
