    I worked at US Bureau of Economic Analysis (More than a year)

    Pros

    Low pressure. Good work life balance. No weekend work, and you can't get fired unless you do something very very stupid.

    Cons

    Can be very boring and career progression is minimal. Sometimes it's hard to see the impact of your work, if any.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to keep the job interesting and exciting and promote younger employees from within. Don't let people stagnate and be a drag.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Bureau of Economic Analysis.

    Interview

    Spoke briefly with an HR person, then had in-person interviews with two separate teams. Fairly standard interview questions, and questions about very basic familiarity with GDP and statistics. It was difficult to understand the differences between the two branches, so I relied more on judgments of personality. I was offered both positions and asked to choose, and I went with the supervisor who seemed nicer.

    Interview Questions

    • Experience with programming   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Offers are made based on education and experience. Even so, I thought my offer was low, so I asked about it but was not able to negotiate.
