    I worked at FAA full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excitement, job satisfaction, doing something that gives one a great sense of self worth and good pay and good benefits make it a good job.

    Cons

    Top heavy management, getting a new boss every 2-4 years when there are national elections. Controllers often don't make good Supervisors of people. The skills that make someone an excellent controller don't often transfer to the management of human beings. There are some that are great, but the vast majority don't do well at it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn that you are not needed often in day to day operations. You need to learn to back off and trust the people doing the work to do a good job. The best Supervisors are ones that don't have to always be "in charge."
