I worked at US Department of State as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Internship experience differs from office to office. The best case is if the office has substantive work to do, with fewer regular FSO's available. In that case, summer interns often fill in for actual FSO work, though it is closely supervised.

Cons

Summer interns may also have to do some office admin work.
