    Pros

    Good department(ME), great project, great mentor, fun campus, great people. Had lots of fun, knowing it was temporary. Advice is to take it if you want one year after Bachelors to apply for universities, or attempt GATE or other exams, Gets you basic salary, less work hours, get to stay on campus and enough time for your next move

    Cons

    Bad climate, ok food, and did i mention bad climate! Experience is mostly dependent on advisor, though. I got a great one, so not a problem for me.
