    Typical government employee benefits. Telework, flextime, credit hours.

    Time off was okay. The work was on and off, and you accepted as much as you could handle. Granted, if you weren't available a lot, you might not get another contract, but the hours were pretty flexible. We also got a travel stipend, which was pretty nice, so a lot of people were enthusiastic about traveling a bit more to get to a site. And we got paid for training, which included the hotel if we had to stay overnight somewhere. There weren't any real benefits, otherwise, so that was the bad thing. No health insurance or retirement plan, though I suppose it does contribute to your overall time worked for the U.S. Government if you're racking up time toward a pension.

    After 5 years, 6 hours of vacation every 2 weeks. Can store as much as 240 hours. Legit sick days.

    I was working as a intern, so there was no benefits for me. Nevertheless, I did work whenever I wanted to, so very flexible hours and I get to write in how many hours I worked for the day.

    The worst thing is that employees aren't paid for accrued sick leave upon retirement.

    Middle management think and act as if the field Reps are insignificant peons Without good field work -good data - nothing else will work - It could be a great job if the chain of command were not so bogged down with Egos.

    There was no insurance or benefit package offered with the census. You did get paid for mileage and they did hand out small bonuses at the end of each operation.
