Great place to work and serve our country in a positive manner
Senior Manager, Strategic Operations Security (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – February 20, 2016
My agency within the Department of Transportation is the Federal Aviation Administration and is responsible for the safe, efficient and secure movement of air traffic within the national airspace system. My small organization within the FAA Air Traffic Organization was responsible for air traffic management security. It requires a 24/7 mentality, a never fail attitude and great team work. The organization is responsible all air traffic security measures such as airspace around events like Super Bowl, VIP (President, etc.) visits, and other high profile events. In addition, the organization provides direct support to the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security and other intergovernmental organizations to secure airspace while allowing for the continued commercial access. Finally, the organization is responsible for the air traffic response to crisis and emergencies, such as wild fires, flooding, hurricanes, etc.
24/7 effects of always being on call.
