FAA Air Traffic Control
Air Traffic Control Specialist (Terminal) (Current Employee), Pueblo, CODecember 10, 2014
Pros: changing environments (never work the same situation twice), fluctuating traffic volumes, exciting/quick paced traffic situations
Cons: rotating shift work (early, late, and overnight shifts), difficult problem solving (requires a complex process--often quickly resolved), large amounts of memorization
The typical work of an air traffic controller specialist (ATCS) involves a multitude of duties and collaboration between air traffic personnel, management, and support technicians. Flexible work hours, possible overtime, and rotating shifts are common among the ATCS community. The FAA management of ATCS employees and the union to provide a safe and – more... effective working environment. Although its a difficult field, ATCS personnel work well and communicate openly during shifts and keep open communication with management on difficult work schedules, staffing needs, and shift availability. – less

FAA Contract Worker
System Administrator II (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKMarch 21, 2014
Pros: freindly laid back enviroment
Cons: no career path to become a fed, no raises, not very good beneifits as a contractor, not very good pay for joureny man position..
Over all the FAA is a good place to work. It is a very laid back environment compared to call center work. Being a contractor, there is not the same job security as if you are Fed. Unfortunately because of furlows, and hiring freezes being put on government departments, there is not any in-roads to become a Fed from a contractor. Also due to the understandable – more... status ranking of veterans, anyone that is not military or disabled - has no chance of becoming a full time Federal employee. On the contracting company side, they do not want to pay the wages which are standard for the job, and prefer to offer the lowest paying salary for Journey man level workers who have actual Enterprise Server experience. They do not take their employees very seriously and make cuts to employees salaries by re-writing their job description on the contract, and then tell them to take the new lower wage, or they can walk from the job. – less
