    A company that you can start a new career with and advance in.

    Watch out for jealousy and impartiality due to buddy ship.

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I learned a whole lot working for Dyncorp. The pay was good . The education i got there furthered my career. I went from O&M Trainer to Government Auditor. The experience of working in the environment of overseas was a chance of a lifetime. I came way with much more than I went with. They work with you .

    Cons

    The long hours with no breaks. R&R being too short. Paid for entire insurance premium. Not pre-taxed. They dont pay unemployment fees here in the states.

    Advice to Management

    They need to listen better to their employees and not go by the buddy system. hire and fire based on indivisual work performance. not who they know.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, wonderful manager and challenging work. I enjoyed my time there and felt that I was working with intelligent people.

    Cons

    The war market at the time was hot. Without the country sending 100k+ troops overseas it will be difficult for this company to succeed.

    Pros

    Interesting variety of recruiting assignments to work on. Strong incentive to hire veterans or former military personnel

    Cons

    Very overbearing, antagonistic management style which fostered petty office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt a more collaborative, team oriented management style which recognizes good, intelligent, dedicated employees.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. Lots of opportunities for advancement (if you work under a good manager), great coworkers, good benefits and flexible hours.

    Cons

    Favoritism is ripe here. Opportunities go to those they like instead of those who are deserving and inadequate work is overlooked because of personal relationships. When ethics complaints are brought up, they are quickly dismissed or swept under the rug instead of being addressed, potentially making room for problems to grow bigger. Employees are afraid to use the Ethics Hotline in fear of being 'black listed' (has happened more than once to different people). If you do a good job your manager wants to keep you under their thumb instead of letting you advance in the company. Also steals employee ideas as their own. A company who hides behind a motto of 'Do the Right Thing, Always'. I don't know, maybe recruiting didn't get the memo.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul needed. This review is only scratching the surface. When you've worked at the company for a long time and the recruiters know the processes better than you, you need to go. The director is horrible. Smart, but not a good people person. Give awards, open your door sometimes, and don't just say hi to your favorite employees in the hallway and ignore the others. It's so obvious it's nauseating. Not all managers are bad here, some are actually pretty great. The department would benefit from manager reviews from the employees or investigations to weed out the corrupt ones. In a perfect world at least.

    Pros

    Coworkers and atmosphere could rival anywhere in the world in community and attitude. We are all one team and it really feels like we accomplish our goals together, with everyone's success in mind.

    Cons

    Management is promoted almost completely on favoritism. It is a joke how many chiefs it takes to round up so few Indians.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with yourselves. What actually IS your job?

    Pros

    I'll like to work on planes, I'm working on the same type of aircraft and do the same thing, when I was in the military.

    Cons

    More vacation time, convert vacation time to days.
