I worked at Inria as an intern for less than a yearPros
I stayed at INRIA (Rennes, FR) for two months for a PhD internship related to an European project (I was paid by the project).
I worked in a small team and the experience was good and productive.
Colleagues were nice.
Nice and new building, placed in a campus right outside the city.
You can easily move by bike, thanks to the fantastic public bike service.
All around there's green and hills, good place for walks (when it doesn't rain, see below).Cons
The weather! In less than one hour I often experienced (in order): rain, sun, cloud, hailstorm, sun, rain. And it was summer (June-July).
People are generally quite reserved, especially if you don't speak French.
Food in the cafeteria is quite of poor quality.Advice to ManagementAdvice

I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Inria in April 2013.Interview Details
I had applied for a post-doctoral researcher position in one of the Inria lab, by following their advertisement in dbworld forum. I had contacted the hiring manager by sending my latest resume, research statement and the transcript of my PhD study. Later I was contacted by the manager for an online interview process over skype. The interview went for 2 hours. In the interview I was basically asked questions about my PhD research topic. I was also asked about my understanding about the current project in which I would be hired and about my learnings from projects that I was a part of in the past. Moreover it was a very informal discussion and I enjoyed it thoroughly.Interview Questions
