ProsMultiudes of different equipment to work on, and write new NDI Techiques. I never know what is going to come through my doors.

Great company at times. The program / management team an employee has will either make you love or hate the company.

Supervisor (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I have been working at DynCorp International full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood people, strong values, decent benefits, competitive pay, military / vet friendly, branching into commercial contracts in addition to government contracts.

ConsLimited options for promotions and employee development. HR policies seem contradictory. Company owners have changed the way enterprise functions.. and it hasn't benefited the employees at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your current people rather than bringing on new VPs.
