Current Employee - Security Manager

I have been working at US Department of Homeland Security full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

No two days are ever alike! If you are good at following basic guidelines and using your
"gut instinct" then it is a rewarding and challenging job.

Cons

No two days are ever alike. Many times you have to respond to irate passengers and to incidents that require you to make decisions that can have deadly consequences should you make the wrong decision.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am middle management, however, I would just say to treat people the way you would want to be treated.
