    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, Good work/life balance, Good benefits.

    Cons

    Neglected to build good teamwork among immediate teams and cross functional teams. Need to review policies on bullying, diversity and proper treatment of co-workers (constant bickering, picking on individuals, arguing among workers). Good employees will not want to stay here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the egos at the door. Just because they have years of experience doesn't mean they can treat people any way they want. Make corrections immediately with employees and build a team and don't allow certain individuals to break the team down.

    I have been working at DynCorp International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The New leadership is much more professional, trustworthy, and focused. While the company has challenges, it feels like we have actual leadership now. The prior management was largely focused on friendships with each other, not business, and the results show the damage -- the only people hired or that prospered were friends of the CEO-- now, merit and competence seems to count. the new management is much, much better.

    Cons

    The damage from prior management will take months, if not years, to reverse. Over the past 2 years, the company was eroded-- it will take time to overcome the prior leadership dysfunction. that said, I am confident that it will be turned around.

    Pros

    Get your foot in the door for contracting, the company doesn't care about you or your bills.

    Cons

    Management, no room for growth, HR tells you one thing and then you have to do different even though its unethical.

    More frequent meetings, consistent procedures within job title. Stop with personnel to inform

    I worked at DynCorp International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Many of the supervisors are top notch and supportive of their people. Though contracting can be difficult to get into, DynCorp's size dictates that they have to hire more personnel than their competitors. Wide variety of contracts and locations to work. Know what you are getting into, especially in war zones.

    Cons

    Though well paid, they pay lower than their competitors. Some supervisors seem just to be filling space, not in contact, except email, with their people; all they do is forward email up and down the line. DynCorp, at least overseas, is not supportive of family at all. You are expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get supervision into the field, with their people, if you can.

    Pros

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

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!!!
