I worked at US Census Bureau as an intern for 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.
