    I worked at US Geological Survey as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    very flexible work schedule, paid holidays, per diem for days doing field work. I was given a lot of independence and a comfortable amount of responsibility as an intern. Some of the lab work was monotonous, but I was given the opportunity to do research, create laboratory experiment protocols, and learn about the work of most scientists in the office.

    Cons

    Logging OT is definitely discouraged, and certain types of lab work might require you to adjust your work schedule, but it depends entirely on your assignments. As it is part of the federal government, a fair amount of time is devoted to paperwork, and specific procedures regarding email, logging hours, etc., so expect that to be a regular part of your workday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. The effort to improve communication between different divisions of the USGS was interesting to see, even as an intern.
