    Pros

    Easy work physically, but requires you to think. Work with great people. Management is great

    Cons

    Rotating shifts, high cost of living in Bay Area. Commute times are horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let me use my 15 years of aviation experience, project management skills, supervisory skills, and knowledge I gained from my college education to better the organization.

    Pros

    Work life balance, keeping up with technology. Opportunities to shine.

    Cons

    Too many laggards with personal fiefdoms, no one wants to be held accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove obstacles out of the way and let us finish projects on time and under budget. PMO, business office and engineering departments need to be shaken up to bring in more customers. Hold folks accountable for wasting tax dollars on unprofitable projects.

    I have been working at FAA

    Pros

    Very fast paced and exciting place to work, I learned so much about the aviation field. I definitely appreciate the opportunity to be a part of something so special.

    Cons

    I felt out of place being the only african american and the only women at my airport. Nothing against the field it self just wasn't for me.

    Former Employee - Air Traffic Control Specialist in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at FAA full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Extensive knowledge gained, amazing income potential, great benefits, and you get to have a rewarding career with great retirement options.

    Cons

    You have to get through the academy with at least a 70. There is a lot of information to learn in a short period of time. I don't think the academy should be graded as you will get training on how your facility wants you to operate when you get there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow instructors at the academy to give help to the students who ask for it without repercussion.

    I have been working at FAA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and job security of working for the Government are undeniable. It's a very rewarding profession. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to have this as my career.

    Cons

    There is a lot of stress, not a lot of mobility, upper levels of management can be heavy handed. Congress controls the budget so you work with less resources than necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop interfering in things you know little to nothing about. The controllers are the stakeholders and know what works and what doesn't. Our involvement has proven to deliver equipment on time and at a reduced cost.
