Former Employee - Airway Transportation Systems Specialist in Tallahassee, FL

I worked at FAA

Pros

Great pay and benefits,Very diverse workload with ability to set priorities,challenging and highly technical workload,great training

Cons

Brown noses advance well, You have to brag on yourself exceeding in all areas for performance bonus which some find fun since they sit around on smoke break 1/4 of day,allowing co workers to carry load.
Must be able to handle high pressure situations during equiptment outages.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get out of politics,Honor hard workers instead of special projects keep technical inspectors centrally located instead of in field office where they can be supervised

    FAA is a good place to work usually...all government offices have a lot of bureaucracy.

    I have been working at FAA

    Pros

    Federal Employees have great job security. Most projects that aren't understaffed and overworked are very flexible with when you take time off. Dress code is relaxed...probably too layed back sometimes. The location and pay are great considering the local economy does not make living in the area too expensive.

    Cons

    Management typically is incompetent. At least 50% of the people you work with aren't worth what they are paid either. You have to focus on the positive people to stay sane. Incentive and recognition aren't the strong points.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just manage the people...don't reward everyone especially when most of them aren't doing the work.

    I have been working at FAA

    Pros

    salary is great, overtime is paid when working over 40 hours. You can work at your own pace to get the job done. it is like a fire man you wait for equipment to break, then fix it.

    Cons

    Managers distrust employees, they do not respect workers and bully to get their way. stress level is high. The overall job satisfaction of the employees is low due to conflict with management. managers second guess you, they also do not want enough employees, so they aften have more work than can be completed, and expect it to be done in the same time as when there were 30 percent more employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your workers, listen to their evaluation of problems, do not be condecending to the workers. Even though you push us to run liuke a business, we all know we really can't, and YOU DON'T OWN THE BUSINESS, THE TAXPAYERS DO. Finally, we both work for the citizens of the USA.
