Excellent pay and retirement; interesting work; great co-workers

Cons

incompetent management; outdated equipment; lack of accountability throughout the organization

The F.A.A. needs professional management. Weak or burned-out controllers are not the answer.
The capacity of the NAS has failed to keep pace with demand. As the economy recovers, air travel will become unbearable once again.

    Pros

    Friendly people and you are not always worried about the state of the economy and the security of your job. The location of the DC office is also great, which is considerably right in the ehart of our nations capital, Washington DC. Federal employees also have perks that are not known, some of which are quite impressive.

    Cons

    Sometimes you run into a lack of motivation with other workers in governement and on your own team. The incentives for hard work arent exactly comparable to private sector either; in government, age and time with the business plays a big role when it comes to moving up.

    Advice to Management

    Most managers are nice and that reall y helps, but occassionaly, as in eveyrwhere, you run into managers that think they're too good and who are tough to work with.
