Current Employee - Air Traffic Control Specialist in Wichita, KS
Current Employee - Air Traffic Control Specialist in Wichita, KS

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

Pros

Job security, extremely fun job, great salary, great union, and great benefits.

Cons

Training is long and stressful, hours are hard at times, you work all holidays, the job itself is stressful, rule changes from law makers who know nothing of what you do.

Advice to Management

Quit the knee-jerk reactions. Implement a "test period" to proposed rule changes instead of imposing them. If the rule change actually helps, put it in writing. More ambiguous rules leave room for more mistakes which cause more problems.

    I worked at FAA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Money, benefits, frequent breaks, organized agency, you can become a supervisor if you are a horrible controller

    Cons

    Work life balance sucks, you'll never get weekends off unless you have 20 plus years experience, you have to chose leave a year in advance and its based on seniority, it's a macho based high school like environment,, limited career advancement opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Grab a headset and work some traffic.
