    I worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Good group of interns every summer, ~150 interns. Very smart people, get to see different divisions and attend interesting seminars. Prospect for hiring back is very good if you are interested in starting a career there.

    Cons

    Long bus ride if you accept the housing at MIT (45 minutes each way), office space is rather drab. Pay is not as good as large software engineering companies like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make lunches free.
