    I worked at IISC as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It was a great expereince with lots of concepts learnt. People are very courteous, and cope well with interns.

    Cons

    It isn't actually a con, but because of the nature of work at IISc, whatever you've been preparing on for a week might suddenly not be needed as it is research oriented.
