Default L-3/Dynamic/Avenge

Minimalist Compare and Contrast:

W-2 or Contract Employee?

Training Contract?

Pay?

Conditions?

So far I know L-3 and Avenge are W-2 employers. Avenge pays 19,500 a month overseas. Avenge travels coach and is 60 on 60 off. Dynamic 107 on 97 off.

Dynamic is W-2 as well. The info in the other threads is excellent. A new thread may condense and update the status of these companies.

Hi All,

I got the interview and the call to work for Dynamic recently, and I had to sweat for a a week or so to get the interim clearance.

I was wondering if anyone can answer any practical questions on accomadations when deployed in the different areas. No, I'm not talking about a big tub to take bubble baths in lol. I kinda know what to expect on that.

What I'm wondering about is civilian communications such as Skype, internet, etc. Will I be able to Skype with my kids? Will I be able or have time to take an internet class? What's the access to internet like?

I'd appreciate any comments you can or are allowed to give.

Thanks

Your conectivity to "the world" depends on the type of contract the company is supporting and your particular bed down location. In my case, because of security, Skype was not allowed in our living area although it was allowed in the MWR (moral welfare recreation), building / tent. Same goes for general internet use---all depends on your particular location. Iraq is generally better in terms of infrastructure than Afghan.
