    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

    Pay and uplifts, Tax free.

    Cons

    Management is power hungry No personal time off schedule except R&R. No concerns for motivating the team. Just act as if they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To get more from your overseas Logcap teams give more.

    I have been working at DynCorp International as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Anytime you're working in a war zone you become a family with those on the ground.

    Cons

    This company hired much less qualified personnel who once worked for me into the lead positions that I held with other companies doing identical work. Military experience takes heavy preference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is legal but hiring ANY group over qualifications, experience, past successes will weaken the company in the long run.

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is that you are getting paid no matter what happens outside the wire. As long as you work your 84 hours, they will pay you for them.

    Cons

    The leadership is terrible, they are double minded, most do not know anything about the job they are performing. The company does not treat its employees well, there is no time off, no sick days, no holidays and they wonder why people are exhausted and complaining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees like adults and not someone you despise. Listen to our ideas on how to improve things and dont shut us out. Allow us to have some time off even if its not paid so that we can regenerate our minds and bodies

    Pros

    Good Pay, Decent benefits, 4% matching 401K

    Cons

    Profit comes before people. Great for stockholders, not great for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be straight with employees. Several upper-level management people left the company a few months before our contract rebid, we were told all of them left for "personal reasons". If logistics is your bread and butter, be straight and let the employees know that you do not plan to drop your profit margin to get the rebid.
