This information can be answered during the interview. I am tired of answering the same material over and over again. All this information is all the same because It was all the same company.
Pros
Do not want to write about this
Cons
I am tired of the part of the application.

DynCorp is a relaxed but busy environment. Employees are tasked to do their jobs and are expected to do so with minimum to no supervision. A typical day can be very demanding requiring at least two personnel to carryout day to day activities.

I enjoyed my tenure years working with the Company. I also learned a great deal while working there, both from my colleagues as well as the company itself.

The hardest part of the Job is to maintain professionalism as not to offend anyone regardless of one personal views.


The best part is representing the greatest country in the world and known that one is making a difference, regardless how minor it may seems to others.
Pros
The free lunch and traveling tickets do make things somewhat impressive.
Cons
Vacation times are too short due to the distance of home country.

Not really sure where this company is headed. work life balance isn't great at all. the compensation is well worth the lack of life balance though. not a bad company to work for but not a good one either

Job Culture
It is a misogynist culture; a boy's club with a strong mission that the company completely ignores. With important customers and programs across the world, the focus is always in the numbers and not the quality. There are some fantastic employees who go above and beyond, some of which are still there and some of which are long the-most of which were fired for insane unbelievable circumstances. Leadership is a huge problem, mostly due to who owns the company. There is so much conflict of interest, personal vendettas and egos that have helped drive this company in the wrong direction. You always feel like you are walking on eggshells and at any given time, misfortune could strike.

Sure, one could say there is always risk when working for a government contractor; however, there is much to be said about what the culture and environment springs upon its employees that scream immorality, irresponsibility, and completely untrustworthy.


This company DOES NOT do the right thing. There is no sense of accountability or team. It's a culture of dog eat dog. One will be lucky to encounter upward mobility. And if you are a woman, you get the respect from peers, but not your manager. Expect hostility, expect to be demeaned and belittled; and yelled at by grown men with obscenities. Fight for every dollar and every hour worked and always save every performance review and document every negative encounter. This company should be sued for its malpractice, violation of it's own ethics and rules, and will make threatening statements and lies to defend its name, no matter the cost.
Pros
Travel, great PM leadership, does great work for government
Cons
Poor Management, Lack of competitive pay, lack of equality for women, poor work culture

They are relatively good bunch of people, but their managers change frequently and one may end up with someone totally horrible, or totally wonderful.

Strong company with good prospects. The company has had a strong turnaround. Enjoy working here but cost location is far too expensive. The TX office is also a great place where one could be assigned.

A typical day at work at Dyncorp was full of demands and requirements. I learned to be assertive and passionate about my work.It was a great opportunity to be a manager. Travel was the hardest part of my job. The most enjoyable part of my job was the employee relationships.

When DynCorp won the contract it was more important to paint the walls and lay carpet than take care of the customer and their employees. There has been so much failure with this company and the customer it is sad to watch.
Pros

Pros
Work/life balance was good with interesting work given and great co-workers who are team-players.


Cons

Negative, narrow-minded management with certain project managers at the top who are micro-managing. Also, there are low salaries being offered with absolutely no room for growth. There may have been some racial-profiling there as well.


Advice to Management

Treat all employees fairly if you want to retain good talent, instead of just favoring the favorite ones.
Pros
Great team (with the exception of management and senior employees), flexible schedules
Cons
Bad management, micromanagement, low pay, unfair treatment of emplloyees

What made this job most enjoyable was the diversity of people who worked there and who all seemed to want to be team players. Little competition and cooperative workplace.
