I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent Mission and dedicated people

Cons

Leadership thinks knowledge is hierarchical - the people that know the most are at the top. This is definitely false.

Advice to Management

Listen too the employees and quit trying feather your own position. Don't hire technically incompetent deputy administrators.

    I have been working at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. You MAY find and keep a friend or two. You MIGHT even meet ONE or TWO good supervisors/managers. Great experience gained. You'll meet a lot of different people & stars.

    Cons

    Terrible management at ORD airport, too much favoritism, too much like high school, promotions based on who you know & who's on your panel for the interview, terrible work-life balance, they don't care how sick you are, if you can breathe "GET TO WORK"! Government shuts down, no pay "GET TO WORK"! I can probably count on one hand how many people deserve to be in a supervisory or management capacity! It's bad!!! Run away!!! I would too if I hadn't gotten so complacent & numb to all the garbage & politics. When you can finally get a door open for a promotion, you find yourself in a whole new load of garbage.

    Advice to Management

    The devil is a lie!!!!! Start CARING for your frontline people ORD management!!!! Officers matter & have feelings & lives to carry on with too!!!!

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

    Pros

    Good Government Benefits which may be the same as any other government agency benefits. It is inside work and you have some air conditioning and some heat.

    Cons

    Rude and selfish passengers, scheming co-workers, incompetent leadership, ridiculous rules, absurd human resource regulations and the ability to make you work 30 days without pay during the government shut-down.

    Advice to Management

    No loop holes, no exceptions, 3rd time violators should be placed on the "No Fly List"
