    I have been working at University Corporation for Atmospheric Research as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked with incredibly smart and dedicated people towards an interesting scientific cause. My manager and mentors were very supportive in letting me work on projects that interested me and allowing me to work around my schedule while in school.

    Cons

    Not a lot of new people, which lead to some stagnant ideas. As an engineer, there is a limited upward mobility, with the scientists being at the top. The main experiments and directions are driven by the scientists and the engineers work under the scientists and follow their direction.
