    I worked at Space Telescope Science Institute as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice office, warm atmosphere, great location and amazing cafeteria. The working hours are flexible and employees are encouraged to work from home once a week.

    Cons

    Main con is the fact that things move slowly in the office. For security and bureaucracy reasons, the projects take longer than they should. Communication between teams to reach agreement brings even more overhead to the projects.
