    I worked at FAA

    Pros

    Knowing you are doing something important.

    Cons

    Government bureaucracy and congressional inaction was very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never assume everything has been adequately communicated to the lower levels of the organization.

    I worked at FAA

    Pros

    Good caring and dedicated people
    Casual fridays
    Interesting work when involved with different departments
    40 hours and overtime is rare and must be preapproved.

    Cons

    Watch your back
    Don't do anything more than expected
    1 year probationary period
    Departments are dependant on annual budgets
    Any overtime or extra work must be preapproved or you will not be paid and may be reprimanded

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plenty of good people who care about what they do. Too much micrmanagement from DC or OK city that should be done locally.
