    Pros

    The benefits and job security of working for the Government are undeniable. It's a very rewarding profession. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to have this as my career.

    Cons

    There is a lot of stress, not a lot of mobility, upper levels of management can be heavy handed. Congress controls the budget so you work with less resources than necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Stop interfering in things you know little to nothing about. The controllers are the stakeholders and know what works and what doesn't. Our involvement has proven to deliver equipment on time and at a reduced cost.

  2. Nowhere to go.
