I enjoy working here.

Cisco Voice Engineer (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAfter April 2013 working in IT got 75% better. A lot of improvements have been made within the IT department as a whole and there are good IT managers willing to give you a chance to move up if you work hard. Training is okay. Most of the training I've gotten to advance my career has been done on my own initiative, at my own expense, and on my own time. There is a lot of opportunity to learn and get experience with a wide spectrum of technologies. Not a lot of perks company wise that I can think of.

ConsAs far as job security, it's only good when there's a major war going on.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at DI as an Administrative Assistant. In my position, I supported many departments within the company.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I worked at DynCorp International full-time for more than a year

ProsAs an administrative assistant, I enjoyed the individual as well as the collaborative group training. The compensation was good. I feel if my contract would not have run out their was potential for me to grow.

ConsI really do not have anything to say negative about the leadership. I worked well with the staff. The only downside to my employment is my contract was cancelled.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to stay on track with your training programs with your employees as you provide services in support of aviation.

Good first job where I gain lots of education and experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I worked at DynCorp International full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat Mentors
Opportunities to grow and advance in your career.
Educational/tuition reimbursement opportunities.
Set policies and procedures set in place for almost anything (I didn't realize how valuable this was until I worked for a company with no policies/procedures).
Great Benefits

ConsWork/life balance - at times I was working 70-80 hours per week, on-call and expected to be available 24/7.
Some favoritism
Some people in management positions did not deserve them or do a good job in them, making it more difficult for their employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall I feel like this is a good company to work for, but a lot of that has to do with the department and people that you work with/for. I believe that it opened many doors for me and taught me so much.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
