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

    Pros

    A learning experience that has evolved thru the decades, I worked in the 1990 and 1980 census and hope to work on 2020!!

    Cons

    The computer system programs crashing from overloads of info...ya think? A little better planning would have gone a long way here. I was told they had 5 years to develope it so what happened?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the employees more bonuses for accurate comprehensive timely reporting.

    Current Employee - Statistician in Suitland, MD (US)

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

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, generous with education in some areas. You can learn about lots of different kinds of businesses or policy concerns. There's some room for moving around if you apply. The building is very nice, with a large cafeteria and a gym.

    Cons

    Lots of silly training and bureaucratic hoops to jump through. Project management lingo is out of control. Reality is that the math is baked into the structure, so very little understanding is required of you to do your job well, despite the education requirements you needed to get the job.
