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

    Pros

    In the field of Air Traffic Control (and if you have what it takes) - this is a rewarding career with competitive salaries, rapid pay raises (first 3 years of training), great benefits and management opportunities for those that show dedication and desire to do more.

    Cons

    Pay decreases if you decide to go "up the ladder" into management. Affirmative action can be a challenge for some - a benefit for others.

    Advice to Management

    For the 99% - you are doing great!

    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.
