My father works for DYNCORP. He loves it. The pay is good but what they neglect to tell you is that the first 100k or so is tax free but after that they tax you harder than normal. Given, my father doesn't do security work for them, he is a helo operator. But he still enjoys his job. In my line of work I deal with these guys alot. They seems to be a good company but I believe that I would rather work for someone like Blackwater, Executive Outcomes, KNR or someone like that. These companies pay better and their duty tours are not as demanding. Just my opinion.

Ive known several people who have gone off and worked for DynCorp...Ive never heard anything negative about them.
Ive known about 10 guys who have gone off and worked for them in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Iraq. They all loved it. Most did 2 yrs.

Not to rain on anyones parade here but I was in Kosovo and truthfully the DYNCORP presence there was slim. They did have people there but they were mainly tasked with deligate security. They never ventured outside the realm of the safe zone. I am not saying that their job wasn't tough, but they didn't see any action with their presence.

The bonus at the end is included in the $134,000...when I was there it was only $120,000 and the end bonus was $9,000...not sure what is it now...They gave you a $10,000 bonus if you signed up for another contract....

I posted this on another forum. It is getting hot in both Iraq in Afghanistan again or should I say hotter.. My team is still working and advised its getting crazy !!!!! Yea the bonus is included in the yearly gross... But they will give ya more if ya finish your first contract... After the first year you can sign up for six months at a time... Unlike Kosovo Iraq, Afghanistan and the Sudan are not UN Missions, you are only a trainer / advisor.. You have no Police powers... Your end of contract check will be between 20 and 30 K that includes your last months pay ..... Lots or promotions to go up for when you get your first 90 days done and they come with a raise........

Just returned from Afghanistan with Dyn… PAST in Virginia was an 80 hr breeze, nothing to it, the PT test is a little tough, but not bad.. The money is great and its in the bank every 28 days.. The logistics can be a mess sometimes, but all in all its not bad at all… Just have to remember you are going to be in a 3rd world & war torn country(s)Very rough on a family man. They do have their own camps and most housing is not bad at all now depending on your location in country military bases are close with a PX and all the supplies you need….Just get use to IED’s, riding around in armored vehicles, being a target everyday and the stinch is horrible! I would not go again, but thats me. No you cant negotiate more money or time off at first, but if ya finish a contract it may be possible for more money… Hope I was a help…....Good luck to you…

I agree logistics was a pain in the ass sometimes, at time you feel like Kevin Costner in Dances with Wolves, if you were in in outlying FOB and not in Baghdad you were forgotten about....but things were getting better when I left...You are embedded with the military and depend on them to get your mission done...
Sometimes getting in and out of country is a pain...one time I had to reschedule my coming home trip...but the money is good.....Hot or not if my wife did not have a problem with me going back I would there tonight.....

Amen brother! I enjoyed my time in the desert. The wife loved the money and I will probable do another mission when the kids get older… Just need to see them grow up right now... I am waiting for a Cuba Mission!!! If Castro will ever give out! And yes the logistics have gotten better, but if you are on FOB life its sucks!!! Not such a good time and the SF guys like to look for trouble!! But that’s their job… I enjoyed working with the military and they had the BIG GUNS!!!…

I'm currently in a FOB in Afghanistan working as a POLICE MENTOR for Dyncorp. I'll be glad to help. I did the same thing a few months back and left several "Posts" on this site and got very little help. I 'll be glad to answer any questions you have.
