    Pros

    When working on a base supported by dyncorp the facilities were adequate and well maintained. The management was easy to contact if needed.

    Cons

    The isn't very many state side positions available when you redeploy so expect to either stay deployed or look for work else where.

    DynCorp Kuwait was a good experience. But it depends on management, which seems to be a rotating door...

    Pros

    money was good, living conditions were great for the employees in the southern region. not so good for the employees in the northern region.

    Cons

    not many cons... there is always room to complain about management, but what company can you find room to complain about the management. I would suggest working here.

    work ethics, respector of employees,protection from outsiders,good co-ordination of duties and responsibilities, no segregation at work place, respect to each others culture and religion

    Pros

    New management is more professional, listens, makes decisions based on facts and details, and engaged. the company feels better run and more competitive.

    Cons

    The damage from prior management is fairly deep and will take time to fix. The BEST thing that happened was new management-- and a real merit based leadership approach instead of hiring and promoting based on cronyism, friends, and family hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on talent-- getting the right people in. Also, travel beyond Virginia and Texas. Finally, the CEO needs to tell us where we are going and the focus areas-- the strategy.

    Pros

    It is a corporation that has been a leading aviation service provider for many years. This business line has performed well for several years.

    Cons

    The business systems are eith antiquated or non-existent. There seems to be a lack of business vision outside the Government Services Industry which is a well that is dry at the moment. Much instability at the top of the corporation undergoing three CEO changes in the last 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek a CEO that has a robust businesss vision in the commercial market rather than keeping eggs in the same Government Services Industry basket.
