    I have been working at FAA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are many interesting and learning opportunities. The work seems endless. The NAS is on the cusp of a major transformation with commercial space and UAS, so the near future should be a very exciting time.

    Cons

    There are very few if any.

    Advice to Management

    None.
