I have been working at FAA full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Stable, predictable, very large organization, few surprises, good local management, and a generally hard working group.

Cons

Predictably: not very flexible, deciisions are based on funding cycles and not necessarily on what is best for the organization at the time, pay constraints are based upon FAA wide standards so performers are not well recognized, there is difficulty in eliminating poor performers as there is a disincentive for management - lots of work over a long period and then the posibility of no back-fill, budgets are tight so staffing is constrained, and senior management is not well versed in information assurance.

Advice to Management

General - education and the knowledge that goes with it is key. It seems to be the first thing cut and the last restored at all levels. Senior technology management seems to be lacking the education in information assurance. Management, in general, obtain their management skills/knowledge later in their management career and do not impart their skills/knowledge to their subordinates so the organization does not grow well from within. Management needs to mentor its new members and those with potential to become managers - do not be afraid of the new people growing and moving upward.
