    Pros

    Had a great chance to work on a variety of topics with some very knowledgeable professionals who were great mentors

    Cons

    EPRI is a nonprofit that does a lot of 3rd party evaluations, so there aren't really any products to be worked on other than technical reports

    I worked at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly and very inviting. Each person I encountered made sure I was okay and comfortable. What I loved the most is that you had your own private cubicle. I also had a nice a great view. My schedule was very flexible. When I applied for this internship I did not know it was paid. However upon being hired I was told it was $14/hr. For a college student that is a huge plus.

    Cons

    The only con was that I was unable to obtain a job at the company upon graduation.
