Great place to work
Team Leader Assistant (Former Employee), Bangor, MEFebruary 16, 2013
I had an amazing experience working for the U.S. Census bureau. The management was helpful and quick to rectify any problem with crew members under my supervision. The work expected was clear and reasonable at all times

Your experience depends largely on your department & supervisor
mid-level (Former Employee), Washington, DCAugust 21, 2012
Pros: benefits except healthcare, internal promotion, social activities
Cons: long hours, no life balance, big egos, internal politics, cronyism, hr always sides with manager, incompetence
Work long, hard hours, stay late, do way more than what you are assigned, take the initiative, and be a team player to get ahead here. The pay here seems to be higher than most associations, though it varies wildly. If you look the wrong way at a boss, you can expect a reprimand from HR, and don't be surprised if the boss claims that they're 'restructuring' – more... and 'absorbing' your position. The communications shop is overbearing and makes a point to insert itself into everyone's business. The manager and director level employees aren't always qualified to have reached that level (we're talking 25 year olds who were promoted after two years of performing standard admin work, but climbed up because they have "the look" and take marching orders without question). Heavy politics and 'friends of the family' action hear. I admit that I learned a great deal here and made some amazing contacts. HR is obsessed with hiring those with Master's degrees and above, so the best way to get in is to start at the bottom. And don't be surprised if you trip over some very large egos. They're EVERYWHERE at the USCC. Overall, it's a decent place to work with okay benefits and a big, conservative, "we try to be everything to everyone" mantra. They could benefit from a more focused platform of goals and reigning in of egos, especially those on the 6th and 4th floors, but it'll never happen. Location isn't the best. – less

Job Summary
National Account Manager (Sales) (Former Employee), Minneapolis MNJune 24, 2012
The Chamber provided a very professional workplace on a day to day basis. I would still be working their but they consolidated the Minneapolis office to Dalls and I could not relocate at the time due to family obligations.
