It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Mission is critical, senior leaders at AA level are incompetent.

I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration)

Pros

Most important job I'll probably ever have. I felt like I directly made a difference in the security of the country.

Cons

Political gamesmanship at its finest. Positining instead of concentrating on the job at hand.

    I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration)

    Pros

    Health benefits
    Easy entry into federal employment
    Consistent hours
    No previous education required to earn 30k per year
    Job security for people who are able to meet bare minimum requirements

    Cons

    Inconsistent from top to bottom with training, promotions, policy enforcement, working conditions
    TSA treats public with very little respect or dignity. For officers who do management will target you for being "soft"
    Breakrooms are filthy with no amenities usually.
    Management is far removed from daily opperations and exhibits very little competent or ability to respond to threats
    Work force is negative, lazy, and insensitive to people
    TSA is a national liability as a disaster waiting to happen because employees are too busy planning cultural awareness events instead of mastering job skills and networking with other DHS agencies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Require testing and prior job experience for all positions and promotions. Stop hiring elderly and recent highschool grads and expecting them to perform sensitive and complicated jobs at the level that our country deserves. Take a hard look at the millions of sop changes and ask if it is possible to train let alone enforce so many changes. Hire and retain more military veterans. They will be TSA's best chance to turn around that joke of an administration.

    Management needs to be more consistent in applying policies at different airports. There is too much effort to make sure that the agency looks good to the public.
