    I worked at US Department of Commerce as an intern (less than an year)


    Given significant responsibilities
    Given work with minimal supervision
    Worked on actual, useful projects, not on any fluff projects
    Very flexible in schedule

    Sometimes guidance was vague
    Only a small travel subsidy provided after a complicated process

    Positive Outlook
