Policy Analysts

Work Environment

Policy analysts work in typical business settings that are equipped with modern office equipment and technology. Most work 9 A.M. to 5 P.M., Monday through Friday, although some may work at night and on weekends to conduct time-sensitive research, draft important reports, or speak at conferences. Approximately 25 percent of economists worked more than 40 hours per week in 2014, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. This statistic for economists can probably be extrapolated to cover policy analysts in general. At large think tanks, senior policy analysts may be assisted by research assistants and administrative professionals.
