    I have been working at FDNY full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Flexibility of your work schedule. Good salary. Your co-workers become a second family. You have to work as a team, no loners. The job brings a tradition with it. Things are carried down from one generation to the next. A job you can take pride in.

    Cons

    You have to work long hours. You have to work holidays and weekends. The job can be dangerous at times. Physically draining at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep FDNY tradition alive. It is very important as I'm sure you know to keep traditions in place. They exist for a reason. To make only those who really want the job get the job. And to make sure that we work as a team not as an individual. And also to instill Company Pride.
