I have been working at Lawrence Berkeley Lab as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

-Awesome location - Berkeley is AMAZING
-Easy access to the city (San Francisco)
-The internship coordinators are awesome and they have a very organized and fun program
-Meet tons of other interns and develop meaningful relationships
-Work on a project that has an actual significance
-It was a very satisfying and rewarding experience
-The culture is awesome up at the lab -- people are open and welcoming
-Mentorship opportunities or almost limitless, whether they be formal or informal, or whether that mentor is a person in your lab or outside of your lab

Cons

You may be placed in a project that may not particularly interest you but it is usually something that suits your skills. The coordinators are also willing to work it through with you
