Pros

Good pay, benefits -what you would expect working for the gov. That's about where it ends though with no career advancement.

Cons

Not much room for real advancement. Any training you might have talked about doing gets cut as funding dwindles. Sometimes can't even do your job at the end of FY as, again, funding dwindles.

Advice to Management

My manager is OK and tries his best. Just hard to deal with the bureaucracy to try to get anything done.

    Pros

    Great flexibility in your schedule.

    Cons

    No training, promotions based on favoritism, disparate work assignments.

    Advice to Management

    You shouldn't be a manager if you are trying to get your name in the Marquis lights. Your job is to train and develop your employees. If you do that well, you are a good manager. If you help your employees work like a team, then you are a great leader. But, if what you are seeking is to make a name for yourself as a great attorney, then go work for a private law firm where you can prove yourself. Otherwise, your victory will be like celebrating art in a dark closet. If you came to government, chances are you are lacking somewhere - don't make others pay for your inability to shine in the real world.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    incompetent management; outdated equipment; lack of accountability throughout the organization

    Advice to Management

    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.
