Current Employee - IT Manager in Fort Worth, TX (US)

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

Pros

The Information Technology department is constantly working toward a standards-based ITIL compliant process structure, which means that IT personnel are able to better control the pace of problem response, and prioritzie work more effectively. Additionally, I have never been anywhere where I was able to steer my own development quite as much as I've been able to do at DI.

Cons

The Alliance location isn't particularly well managed from a work-space considerations standpoint. Over-crowding, too little parking, and ever-decreasing cubicle spaces are a chronic problem with this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix the crowding problems. Make Change Management in IT a little more user-friendly. Don't require documentation that isn't necessary, or doesn't make sense to the Change process. Improve documentiaton overall, especially in the CI aspect of the CMDB.

    I worked at DynCorp International as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    DynCorp manages multiple projects but this review is of the LOGCAP IV project. It was a very challenging project, supporting the troops overseas with high opportunities to grow, advance and enhance your skills.

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to administer a subcontract when the home office has such high control over remote project. Often speedy growth and the natural high turn over of projects of this nature lead to unqualified personnel in management/supervisory positions. Due to the imbeded nature of this project it is much more work than life but that is clearly outlined in advance. Not all projects are best managed from the other side of the planet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate - It is more than just meetings with speeches.
