Current Employee - Air Traffic Controller in Nashua, NH
Current Employee - Air Traffic Controller in Nashua, NH

I have been working at FAA

Pros

Excellent pay and retirement; interesting work; great co-workers

Cons

incompetent management; outdated equipment; lack of accountability throughout the organization

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The F.A.A. needs professional management. Weak or burned-out controllers are not the answer.
The capacity of the NAS has failed to keep pace with demand. As the economy recovers, air travel will become unbearable once again.

    Current Employee - Computer Software Specialist in Atlantic City, NJ

    I have been working at FAA

    Pros

    I am not sure about the "best" reason, but one of the big reason I am here is job security, benefits while on the job and then retirement benefits. Also, if you land in a good group - like luckily I did - you have the benefit of working for some very smart people.

    Cons

    Just like any government - or actually, any organization of this size (I do not think it is really a government v/s private sector, it is small v/s big issue), there is a lot of bureaucracy and hoops to jump to get anything done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    small satisfactions go a long way. An example, a group pizza once a month - would go a long way.
