    Pros

    None!!! The pay still starts out at $68000 a year which is what it started out at in 2011. If you don't mind this pay for sweeping and mopping hanger floors when the customer is upset with the company then this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Site management is horrible. They are all untrained managers who are placed in position due to seniority. Don't believe the job description. You will not be training. You will be the one doing all the work. The UAE Army does not work. They pray and sleep. DynCorp is directly responsible for their Operational Rates. You will live in the worst part of Abu Dhabi and the apartments are moldy and roach ridden. DynCorp is so desperate to keep this contract that when AAMROC took over DynCorp becomes the sub-sub contractor and DynCorp employees had to wear AAMROC uniforms. How sad. You will be hating life as the most senior guys on site live the life in their huge villas and SUVs.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management: REPLACE SITE MANAGEMENT!! You're losing money hand over fist by allowing these clowns to drive this site into the ground. Many good people are hired and once they arrive they instantly want to leave because they realize they've been lied to.

    Pros

    Pay is on time normally

    Cons

    HR team is unresponsive and senior leadership is the worst. If you have a concer you will either wait weeks for a response and more often than not no response. High turnover and higher layoffs with little to no notice. 3 CEO changes in 18 months. Unless you need it dontt bother. There are plenty of other contract companies out there

    Advice to Management

    Change HR leadership starting at the top then director level

    Pros

    Working for Dyn-corp got me my foot in the door for being able to transition to a better security contracting companies.

    Cons

    They try to screw you every chance they get and were not helpful with any problems that arose.

    Advice to Management

    Look out for all employees on every level. Even just showing an effort to help employees will increase moral which in turn will increase productivity.

  7. Great way to get your foot in the door for a better contracting job
    overseas. Pay is better than most jobs in USA.

    Pros

    There really isn't any positive aspects about this company except for the living arrangements downtown.

    Cons

    You live in a country with horrible people who consider anyone that is not
    muslin "Sub-Human." Supervision doesn't know anything except for
    micromanaging and babysitting lower level employees, which supervision has
    no respect for. Some of the leaders constantly refer to the technicians as
    "Airmen" which this is not the military anymore. When you suggest an idea
    to supervision they give you an attitude and then reprimand you later.
    Anytime an HR matter is brought up, supervision just tells everyone the
    matter was solved when it was never talked about. They prefer to sweep
    everything under the rug with high hope the employee with the complaint will
    get fired or quit so the problem will just go away.

    Advice to Management

    HR really needs to send someone in to look at the way management treats
    their employees and runs the program. The only advice to management is to
    quit so better more competent managers can be hired in their place.

  8. Only work for them if you're very desperate.

    Pros

    Living conditions are the only thing that is nice.

    Cons

    Management did not know anything about their job or the career field what so ever. The pay is horrible. Qatar is a horrible country. Management is so far into micromanaging that they actually block off hours on their schedule to physically babysit personnel. Promotions are based upon whether you drink with your boss instead of overall job knowledge and experience. The operations manager has no clue how to properly manage people.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of the upper management, superintendents and operations manager, at station and start fresh with a new group of employees that actually know their job and how to do it properly.

    Pros

    This company has very little that is positive, if the job market wasn't in the toilet, I would hve left already.

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement for women

    Pros

    If you are really in need of employment and can't find anything else then work here only to gain experience and then leave after a year. Otherwise, I don't recommend working here.

    Cons

    DI is top heavy and pay only its upper management personnel. They don't care about the support staff, often lose bids on proposal due to POOR PAST PERFORMANCE ratings, and has a bad reputation with the government. They are a sinking ship!

    Advice to Management

    Clean house!! of your upper management who have fat paychecks, stop hiring your siblings, and other family members and promote HONESTLY within the minorities who are qualified. Stop promoting those caucasians who are NOT qualified. Stop lying to the government!!!

    Pros

    High salaries per experience and a ton of flex time during the week.

    Cons

    I had a manager who broke every rule on the social contract. I reported it to Ethics because it was getting out of hand. Ethics said, "yeah, there are some bad managers out there but just because he lies or treats you bad does not mean anything.. but I will talk to them about the internal training you aren't getting". I was given permission for training immediately afterwards and a couple weeks after that I was let go in a so called "lay-off"! I contacted Ethics regarding "retaliation" and they wouldn't respond for 6+ months. Later found out that my boss had lied again to Ethics in a cover-up so Ethics just left it at that. Would not look into the matter.
    Turnover is significant. More than any company I've ever seen. I had 7 different managers during my few years tenure. None of whom are with the company any more. Further, leadership portrays unethical standards in cost representation to the government.

    Advice to Management

    The right thing doesn't come from you.
