    Pros

    Some of the most interesting work I've ever been a part of.
    Look forward to going in to work everyday because of my coworkers.
    Extremely forward thinking team, and company.
    Amazing location, in the heart of Silicon Valley.

    Cons

    Probably an unlikely chance of job offer after internship due to the size of the team.
    Expensive location to live, and no travel/housing accommodations for interns.

    Advice to Management

    Providing, or help finding, a place to live for the summer in the Bay Area (notorious for being one of the hardest places to find housing) would be incredibly appreciated as an intern.
