    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.

    Pros

    Get to work out of my home with a very flexible schedule. Travel throughout the state of KY gave me the opportunity to meet and work with new people.

    Cons

    Job only lasted 17 months due to the census operations ending.
