Pros

Great work in the public interest, generally good management and co-workers, flexible schedules, good benefits. With the Metro coming, the location is even better!

Cons

I can't think of any that I wouldn't find everywhere else. It seems that promotions are not easy to come by, I believe they could have a better performance evaluation system in place.

Advice to Management

Get out amongst the people more (pop your head in somebody's office and find out what they're working on).

    Pros

    - Plenty of freedom
    - Startup-like work environment
    - Many tech talks that interns are encouraged to go to
    - Good cafeteria
    - Interns are a part of all major brainstorming for their projects, and normally have a large say in what happens on the project.
    - Interns are normally given R&D projects
    - I was put in an office where I was sitting on $3000 chairs, working with equipment worth more than my entire pay at the internship
    - Friendly environment
    - Weekly meetings with supervisors that were mostly focused on making me comfortable

    Cons

    - Occasional bureaucracy
    - Supervisors tend to be extremely busy
    - Some projects are given very vague directions
    - Honest feedback isn't always given

    Advice to Management

    Give interns strict guidelines for their first project.
