colleagues: friendly, inviting, helpful. they all made a point of making me feel welcome and were happy to help and explain the project to me and give me advice
work/life balance: worked from 8:30-6:00. plenty of time to myself to work out, see friends, and enjoy my time in a new city
there were times I didn't have much work to do because of the stage of the project and just sat around doing basic research to learn how to use different tools or better understand the project. Because I did not have a long term project (most only lasted a few days) I would constantly have to reach out to see what else I could do
Advice to Potential Interns
Reach out to the recruiters/interviewers and ask them about their experiences.
Try to get assigned to a project that you find interesting.
make sure you decide if the work or the location are more important to you
