    I have been working at FAA

    Pros

    Networking opportunities allow you to learn procedures and requirements in different phases of FAA operations. Thus allowing you to market yourself eventually to different divisions within the FAA.

    Cons

    There can be road blocks in the form of management types that are not as qualified s they should be, who may impede your progress climbing the latter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When someone is washed out of one department and removed from duty, do not let career history and education lead you to believe they can handle similar duties in a different department.
