    I worked at US Bureau of Economic Analysis as an intern for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked directly with the Chief Economist on a Health Care project over the Summer. I got a large degree of independence and was able to learn a lot from her and the other economists I worked with.

    Cons

    It's government work, so it can be a bit boring, but overall nothing to really complain about.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at US Bureau of Economic Analysis in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    The Federal hiring process is SLLLOOOOOOW. I applied in May and received a phonecall in September. But then they weren't cleared to interview people until December.

    The people there are really top notch. They kind of ooze intelligence, which probably makes it an exciting place for nerds to be around. I was interviewed by several people....we discussed my research and analysis background plus my proficiency with different softwares. Topics really didn't deviate much from the extensive list of supplemental questions I answered just to submit my application.

    Reasons for Declining

    The people were excellent...but...they seemed a bit on the introverted side.
    I had two other job offers pending at the time; it was nothing personal, and I might look into other positions there in the future.
