    I have been working at FAA full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours, people you work with and pay are all great pros of working for the FAA. The FAA does a great job of screening people and having the best people with great personalities for every job. The consistent pay is also great as it provides support and a stable income to provide for my family.

    Cons

    Some cons working as a controller are the swing shifts. its tough to plan around and can sometimes interfere with your family but its a great career nevertheless.

    Former Employee - Consultant in Washington, DC

    I worked at FAA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Performed as a contract and full time support consultant covering a twenty one year span. Translation, a job that provided longevity and security. Served as a asset manager and documentation manager for aeronautical products.

    Cons

    I received in-house training on automated inventory systems to manage IT assets located throughout the US. Too widely dispersed, accountability in some cases were very challenging

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Federal Government no recommendations.

    Pros

    aviation is wonderful....something new happens every day....you cannot make a mistake so every day
    is perfect. Everyone respects the ATC and the job he does.

    Cons

    equipment breaks down much too often. The controller must maintain strict awareness 100% of the
    time while on duty.

    Pros

    Stability, work life balance and office culture.

    Cons

    No incentives for salary growth, stock options etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide incentives for growth and a more incentive based reward system which could at least somewhat try to match private sector.
