    Pros

    Never a dull moment. Training was very comprehensive. The compensation was so good that you couldn't help but do a great job.

    Cons

    The 2010 Census Campaign was too short. I didn't have enough time to really get to know my coworkers. Too much time between serving in a civil service job without benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Find good field managers that will learn how to handle cultural diversity. Make sure that supervisors are fair to all employees.

At the US Bureau of the Census, people count. The Census Bureau is in the business of recording almost everything about the nation's citizens. As a division of the US Department of Commerce, the Census Bureau crunches and publishes statistical information collected every 10 years about the nation's economy, geography, and people, including housing statistics, community profiles, and education data.
