  1. "Intern at MPL, SIO"

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Scripps Institution of Oceanography for less than a year

    Pros

    Surrounded by lots of intelligent people, beautiful location, plenty of opportunity to learn and to delve into a variety of different projects. Atmosphere is very research oriented which is conducive to learning.

    Cons

    Scientists can be a little difficult to work with at times. One can easily get stuck doing something mind-numbing or mundane that the PI or someone didn't want to do.Other than that, there were not many downsides.

    Advice to Management

    Try to ensure that all interns have a solid variety of projects to work on. That is, ensure that one person doesn't get stuck with boring work while the other gets to do design.
