Ideal employer for those willing to work hard, apply themselves, and who are dedicated to learning more about business

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than a year

ProsStrong company values for which people are held accountable; companywide sense of pride in the mission - people care about the work they are doing; opportunities to learn more to advance your career are limitless

ConsMarket dynamics make this a challenging time for anyone who contracts with the U.S. government; not a place for those just looking to "show-up" each day who are not invested in the work they do

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on core values across company; continue to hold people accountable for delivering results and living the company values

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Same as any other overseas contractor out there, lots of politics and many employees there for the paycheck only.
