    Excellent place to work as summer intern

    I worked at Lawrence Berkeley Lab as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The group I worked with was fantastic. The people were extremely friendly. The problem I was given to on over summer was part of a bigger research initiative and so I felt like I really contributed to some serious research. The bus facility to and from the BART station was also very useful. I also loved the Berkeley town.

    Cons

    The only drawback was that we were moved from newer facility to a very old building a couple of weeks into my internship.
