    I have been working at DynCorp International as a contractor for more than a 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

    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.

    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

    There are many opportunities for growth and advancement if you apply yourself. This was in a warzone and the people for the most part were like family.

    Cons

    The biggest CON is that most of the upper and senior management were not competent in their position. Their lack of skills and competency crippled the operation in many ways... Bad decision!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bridge the gap between working projects HQ, and corporate for a smoother and seamless operation.

    Pros

    Decent salary. Travel and training if it's within your job description.

    Cons

    Lack of communications between corporate and the 'folks in the field.' Educational benefits - yeah, if the class you're taking is looked upon as within your job scope, but highly subjective.

    Pros

    I learned alot but ...........

    Cons

    .............not a minutes rest. 7/12s. Lousy accomodations. Always the worst on FOB. Management, all former KBR didnt seem to learn much from LOGCAP III. Bad morale (QEST). Overworked, stress out the ears, mind numbing paperwork. QEST auditors are disrespected and hated by all and the hostility wears on you.Makes you hostile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How bout a day off. Better living quarters. Not enough attention to mental health and stress. A very passive approach. People suffer in silence. How bout some real MWR. Organize events instead of just setting up tents.General order #1 sucks. Beer making kits should be distributed to all.
