there are probably better places and companies to work for
Recon (Former Employee) – OCONUS – April 27, 2016
Politics can be a problem everywhere, as a contractor, but are a hundred times worse within this Company. A large contribution to this and overall bigger problem was the Department of State, the Government Agency who oversaw the contract and interfered on a daily basis with DynCorp's Execution of and Operations of the contract. DynCorp lackekd the leadership at all levels of management, local and corporate, to confront this interference. Employees are the ones that suffered.
Treated me good and worked with a good bunch of people. I was more RADAR than anything else when I firsted started but had been qualified all system when I worked F-4's in the Air Force which wa pretty rare. The techs I worked with at Andrew's AFB on the Presidential Fleet and at Patrick AFB taught me a lot of the other systems which allowed me to advance to a program Avionics Lead at DI for the Dept of State INL Air Wing contract.
Challenging requirements, modifications and repairs

Aircraft Mechanic (Current Employee) – Maryland – March 2, 2016
I've worked for Dyncorp for two years now. They're a good company to work for. The work environment is not bad. I spent eleven years in the military and everyone I work with at Dyncorp are also veterans. The management on the other hand is not great. Supervisors seem clueless and don't really take care of their workers. Evaluations are a joke.

The job of QA Inspector is right up my alley. I love working on the Navy base. My boss is a great manager. My co workers are top notch for the most part.The most enjoyable part of the job is training others. The worst part is the large amount of overtime during the summer.
ARMAMENT / ELECTRICIAN (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – February 4, 2016
Overall, the job was fun. I learned a great deal with my time at Dyncorp. I enjoyed the maintenance aspect of the job. However, the compensation/benefits could have been a little better. Pay scales were even across the board with no room for advancement. Insurance was OK considering at the time I was only paying for myself and my spouse. If you enjoy working in the aviation field then this job is for you.

I enjoyed my experience and was given the support needed to do my work. I have learned to function in a multi ethnic environment and to appreciate differences. Management was very supportive and showed interest in my specific work assignments. Coworkers showed respect and interest in the nature of my work and motivated me at times even though my line of work was totally different than theirs.

A great group of talented highly skilled employees
IT APPLICATION TRAINER (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – April 26, 2016
I really enjoyed the group I worked with at DynCorp. Lots of smart people doing great work. My management was easy going and allowed for me to work my tasks with little supervision. People were nice and helped me to do a job that supported the success of the group.
Good job if you like repair station work. Lots of oversight and task management, this affects production. Small amounts of vendor and airline maintenance which is fun and financially rewarding if you can get in.

It was a pleasure working for DynCorp. We all felt that we were contributing to the well being of America' War Fighters in a positive way.
Fun at times but not always, It;s what you make it.
MECHANIC (Former Employee) – Ft. Hood, TX – November 24, 2015
work started at 7 am and ended at 3:30 pm on most days which was a plus. I got to travel at times to California and down to the Port in Beaumont. The team lead directly in charge of me and my team was an all around good guy but some of the higher management had no clue what was going on, and we perceived that they also didn't care. Most enjoyable part was getting to work along side soldiers and some of the people I worked with.
Good company with insufficient experience for LogCAP contracts
Project Controls Specialist/Estimator, LOGCAP IV (Former Employee) – Kuwait – November 21, 2015
Project I worked on for DynCorp Intl. was something new in their business so they had to go through baby steps. Personnel in field was greatly experienced since most of them worked on those projects for years (me too), but higher management wasn't so that created some initial hick ups. Work environment was good and professional, so learning curve was steep and after couple years everything was at its place and mission was almost flawless. I enjoyed working since Project Controls team I worked for was great and well respected.
Aircraft Mechanic (Current Employee) – Patuxent River, MD – December 16, 2015
They pay well and follow whatever the Navy says. If you are used to a military lifestyle, this job will suite you well. If you are more comfortable in a normal job where the military way of running things is a distant memory, I'd say pass. You do get to see some unique aircraft working here, that is a big plus.
Team Lead (Former Employee) – Ft. Bragg, NC – November 29, 2015
Hard to get full support on missions. Too many shortcuts were taken due to lack of funds. There was no real control or good information flow for employees due to not having a central work location. Corporate management was never there long enough to get a handle on all aspects of companies capabilities. This led to poor management decisions at lower levels.
