    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got a lot of experience testing electronics. I learned about the research industry. The work actually seemed important. I was able to apply skills I learned in school and got to learn a lot of new skills and use a lot of equipment that I would normally never even see.

    Cons

    I was either extremely busy or had no work to do for periods of a couple days. There are lots of meetings and conversations that you need security clearance to hear about. I know other interns who worked on projects without knowing what they were actually working on.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there is enough work for interns to do.
