    I worked at National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The internship was very flexible. Management was friendly and helpful. There were many resources that I could get help from.

    Cons

    Some of the tasks were repetitive and a little too easy. However this could be because I was still a high school student.

    Former Employee - Fisheries Intern In Woods Hole in Woods Hole, MA
    Former Employee - Fisheries Intern In Woods Hole in Woods Hole, MA

    I worked at National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people there are really great. Dr. Ambrose Jearld is an absolute pleasure and as supportive a mentor for future scientists as you will ever find. I would recommend this to anyone who has not yet had an intensive research experience who wants to determine their attitude about marine-related research.

    Cons

    No real negatives. If you're looking for research experience in marine related fields, look no other place than NOAA. The housing wasn't great but the experience was authentic and Woods Hole more than compensates for the humidity. Watch out for the ticks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support summer research initiatives more to build future scientist reserves.
