"Summer intern at HP Labs"

Pros

Interesting and challenging research projects, great intern social activities, opportunity to work with brilliant and world-famous researchers. Relaxed hours as long as you get the work done, opportunity to work from home (although it is a waste considering the kind of people that you can interact with).

Cons

The company website is almost impossible to navigate; hard to get all important information as a new hire. Need to dig around on old, seemingly abandoned wiki pages to learn about systems, benefits, etc. However, they seemed to be aware of this and working on it (e.g. through a "bureaucracy buster" initiative).
