Pros

Government benefits
Great retirement with a pension
Working air traffic is a complete dream
Growth is there if you want to suck up to the big wigs
Union representation

Cons

Management is clueless to who you even are
Too political
Not enough communication between management and employees, even in the same building!

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    No opinion of CEO
