I worked at US Census Bureau full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

you only need to do well on the test and then you will be considered for employment! they teach you everything you need to know to do your job and there were opportunities for advancement. I had no career path before working for census but by being in administration i discovered my interest in HR/Payroll. Today, 3 yrs later, I have been able to turn my census experience into a fulfulling and successful profession.

Cons

it was a temporary assignment so no matter how well you performed or how much you want to stay on, there is a set end date.

Advice to Management

looking forward to 2020- maybe we can have a more efficient payroll system by then? ;)

    I worked at US Census Bureau as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's nothing outrageous, if rigor and bureaucracy is your thing then this place is perfect.

    Even if it's not your thing, It's just a standard day job that doesn't mess with the rest of your life.

    Cons

    This can be said about a lot of places, but here it's primarily who you work with. If you're with a great bunch, it's a dream to work there, but if there's a bad coworker in the mix then things can go downhill quite fast.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize your divisions, it's much easier interning for multiple years when the policies remain the same.

    I have been working at US Census Bureau full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good work/life balance, gym in the building, teleworking opportunities, flexible schedule

    Cons

    political dependencies, inappropriate promotions (e.g. promotions based on quotas), building is located in a poor, not-so-safe area, if you're a motivated employee you will have to lower your standards to fit in, co-workers are lazy (on average)
