    I worked at RAND as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    RAND has a very collegial atmosphere, with many opportunities to work on diverse projects and build your own research path as you meet other professionals from a wide array of disciplines, all working in the same building.

    Cons

    The main hub in Santa Monica is a great office, but the cost of living and traffic are worth considering if seeking a job there.
