    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at NATS full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary and benefits, a great team of people, currently running a world class ATC system

    Cons

    Training and development of operational grades pretty much non existent. Woeful internal I.T. systems make day to day work almost impossible at times. Standard of catering and provision for shift workers is unacceptable. Understaffed in critical areas with 3 year backlog of trainees. ATC system upgrade looks to be a retrograde step.
