    I worked at RAND as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting work on policy related issues; could work on multiple projects at once; projects only last about a few months typically so you can move on to something new fairly quickly; free to work on my own time- in and outside of the office; intelligent colleagues;

    Cons

    Pay is contract based-- so if you're not billing to a contract you're not getting paid at all. In practice this usually means that you're working on projects you're not as interested in, but in theory it concerned me that I could go without pay at times with out much of a safety net.
