I have been working at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Ok pay, promotion opportunities abound (if you're willing to move even more so), benefits

Cons

This is no longer a security position, it's customer service. Be careful if you do get promoted however, don't start doing your new job until HR says you can start, otherwise you'll be cheated out of that first month or so of pay.

    Change the pay system to the GS Pay system that most government agencies use.
