    I worked at US Census Bureau as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Job security, decent pay and low expectations are the primary reasons to work at the Census. If you are a "work for the weekend type" then it's hard to go wrong here.

    Cons

    The low expectations can certainly lead to job dissatisfaction for the more motivated employees. I was not captivated at all by any of the projects I worked on and shared this sentiment with most of the other people on my team. Some people dealt with this problem well but it was enough for me to decide not to pursue a full-time job here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It might be a good idea if management took time to discuss objectives and expectations with interns more often. This is done regularly with full-time employees.

    I worked at US Census Bureau part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    High paying for the kind of work you do.
    The hours are pretty flexible and short.

    Cons

    May have to work a graveyard shift or two.
    Had to get into teams of 3 or 4 to survey the homeless, so some areas may be a little sketchy.
