I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent Mission and dedicated people

Cons

Leadership thinks knowledge is hierarchical - the people that know the most are at the top. This is definitely false.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen too the employees and quit trying feather your own position. Don't hire technically incompetent deputy administrators.

    I have been working at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. You MAY find and keep a friend or two. You MIGHT even meet ONE or TWO good supervisors/managers. Great experience gained. You'll meet a lot of different people & stars.

    Cons

    Terrible management at ORD airport, too much favoritism, too much like high school, promotions based on who you know & who's on your panel for the interview, terrible work-life balance, they don't care how sick you are, if you can breathe "GET TO WORK"! Government shuts down, no pay "GET TO WORK"! I can probably count on one hand how many people deserve to be in a supervisory or management capacity! It's bad!!! Run away!!! I would too if I hadn't gotten so complacent & numb to all the garbage & politics. When you can finally get a door open for a promotion, you find yourself in a whole new load of garbage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The devil is a lie!!!!! Start CARING for your frontline people ORD management!!!! Officers matter & have feelings & lives to carry on with too!!!!

    I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Passengers are fun and engaging, no control of how employees treat each other or how they are treated by mgt. lots of unfair and uneducated decisions--unless you are political--for this low paying job...each check point is different

    Cons

    Bad Management, no people management skills, most supervisors and managers do not work hard enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage/ this is a business--need to standardize practices...Get better supervisors and managers on the floor.
