    I have been working at FAA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Work load is great. You are going to have a lot of free time so use it wisely.

    Cons

    Negotiate salary once you get hire otherwise it is hard to get a raise. Also moving up maybe hard as government employees tend stay longer
