Current Employee – been working at US Census Bureau

family friendly job, pretty much work 8 hours a day
Cons – Not willing to pay for things like master's degrees with the exception of the survey methodology program
Work is very, very, very boring-a lot of people say this.
Work comes in cycles, when there is no work, there is nothing to do and if you ask management for something to do they will give you a cold blank stare. I really do not recommend this job for a young person straight out of college for that reason. Everyone around me facebook surfs all day and you really can't blame them.
Cafeteria food options are terrible and expensive. I swear it looks like they just make the most random recipes with ingredients that do NOT go together.
Many of the managers are smart book wise but are terrible at management.
Advice to Senior Management – pay for higher education programs and not just surv method.
allow for more ease of movement between divisions -working on the same program gets boring quickly
