    I worked at US Census Bureau full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I met some great people and I helped with important work that affects all of us in the United States, from elections to your GPS.

    Cons

    Staffing levels are considerably reduced when the decennial census concludes. If you're looking for job security, wrong place! Some of the work is extremely boring and repetitive, but requires a great deal of attention to ensure that an error isn't committed. Management and worker churn can lead to redundant work and double-checking. Communications breakdowns can leave you in the middle of field and management disputes. Some managers were more concerned about pushing cases through than in whether a house was accurately ennumerated, and one told people to shred documents that had to be archived. Senior management eventually dealt with these abuses and sent in a really crack manager to oversee things, but the wheels turn slowly.

    I worked at US Census Bureau part-time

    Pros

    The people were great to work with. Lots of teamwork and it was very refreshing to go out and meet people in the community as oppose to sitting in an office all day.

    Cons

    Management could have given more direction. Hours may be long depending on if you can complete the assignments or not.
