    I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, especially healthcare and savings/retirement (employer matching etc) just have to stay until vested. Potential opportunities in other related agencies.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic structure - constant performance testing to retain job- high turnover - top position “political appointment” leadership doesn’t stay long enough to implement and fine tune programs.

    Advice to Management

    Really Read the annual satisfaction survey results and develop and implement responsive, well designed programs to boost employee morale at all levels. Get more permanent key leadership in top positions - need new “blood” !!!
