    "The schedule is incredibly draining; there is more stress from the schedule than the job."

    Former Employee - Air Traffic Controller in Fremont, CA
    Former Employee - Air Traffic Controller in Fremont, CA

    Pros

    The work is challenging and the compensation is good. The psychological rewards of controlling lots of planes is great.

    Cons

    Say goodbye to spending normal holidays with your family. You will be tired most of the time because of the schedule. The schedule is unnecessarily ridiculous. Rarely are 2 days in a row starting at the same time. Overnight shifts are routine.

    Advice to Management

    Two words. Hire. Locally. The satisfaction of many controllers I have met is closely matched with whether they are working in a location of their choice. People are lured by the salary into locations they dislike; and no amount of money makes them happy.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, working together as a team brings you closer to your coworkers. I also travel abroad and get to see the world.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that there is not an abundance of overtime to be worked when you need that extra spending money.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example, we recently had a high profile executive manager get into some trouble with the law for drinking while driving, and he would send out periodic emails that broadcasted against such acts.
