"Fantastic Opportunity"

Former Contractor - Partnership Specialist in Dallas, TX
Former Contractor - Partnership Specialist in Dallas, TX

I worked at US Census Bureau as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Great flexibility and independence to reach out to communities and partner to get a good count. Working with elected officials and community groups could be challenging but in the end it is worth it. I wish this was a permanent job as it would make the decennial census a lot more easier or at least you had a lot more ground covered, more groups involved.

Cons

It's the government so lots of paperwork.

Advice to Management

Keep the Partnership program as an ongoing initiative, will produce better results.

    I worked at US Census Bureau as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fair standards for job performance and fair pay. Opportunities for advancement. Good source for part-time and temporary work. Training is very thorough and management communicates through the ranks. When co-workers' vehicles were vandalized while canvasing in risky areas, they were reimbursed for the `cost of repairs, at least in part.

    Cons

    Many positions are being eliminated sur to stupid federal budget cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Waste less paper....

    I have been working at US Census Bureau full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Clear roles and responsibilities. Good opportunities for advancement. Pleasant work environment and fulfilling work because it is constitutionally mandated.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic and rigid organizational structure. Limited ability to make significant change to how things are done. Technology is not up to date. Pay scale is good for government but not up to par with the private sector

    Advice to Management

    Processes are too rigid and this limits the ability of people to contribute and limits the ability of the organization to change. Can stifle creativity, motivation and interest.
