Former Employee - Air Traffic Controller in Denver, CO
Former Employee - Air Traffic Controller in Denver, CO

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

Pros

Great pay and benefits. Great job security, after a rigorous training (3 years) purposefully eliminating those that cannot do the work, thus jeopardize countless lives on airplanes. Great people.

Cons

The FAA decides where you will work, and 50/50 chance of transferring to where you want to live. Management opportunities are abundant, however the relationship between management and labor has always been strained.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay focused on the work and the people that perform the work. Avoid pitfall of making budget the number one thing. Budget supports work, it shouldn't drive it. Spend more time and energy developing the next generation of leaders. FAA does very little to train it's leaders.

    Pros

    A view of New York like no other

    The uneven distribution of work to the bottom

    Divide the workload more evenly, otherwise a pretty good solid place to work at.

  2.  

    Bi-polar environment that thinks it knows what it wants but does nothing to ensure the local goals are achieved.

    Current Employee - Atss in Nashua, NH

    I have been working at FAA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    pay, flexible schedule (provided you request far in advance), good rate of earning leave once you've been in for 15 yrs, training schedule

    Cons

    work schedule(rotating shifts), required to schedule leave out 1 yr in advance, supervisor can change schedule throughout year after the annual schedule has been established, Congress uses your job as a political football cutting your salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remind the flying public and Congress that FAA actually produces income for the gov't and before FAA was required to be part of the General Fund we were able to cover all of our costs & upgrades and still have a surplus at the end of the year.
