    I worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is better than what I would get in my home state.

    Cons

    Couldn't find anywhere to live. Had to move 5 separate times because I couldn't find a stable living situation which meant I had very little money left at the end of the summer. The hiring process was very stressful compared to my past internships. Expect a bunch of paperwork...

    Advice to Management

    Provide housing for students.
