Air Trffic Control Career

Air Traffic Controller (Former Employee) Denver, CO

ProsGreat 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementStay 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
