Working at Stanford was one of the best opportunities I've ever had.

I worked at Stanford University as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

It's an amazing place to work. I've met so many intelligent, interesting people and learned so much. I met each day with new challenges and I got so much insight into working in the laboratory fields and it helped me realize what I want to do with my life.

Cons

The man who was the assistant of the head of my lab wasn't very nice. He seemed distant and very aloof and he was not helpful to me at all. He was even rude at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be kind to interns. Just because we're in high school doesn't mean we don't deserve your respect.
