The staff is very kind at CERN, the food is nice, and there is a ping pong table. The conference rooms are expansive and have good air-conditioning and the internet is of high quality.

Being part of the summer student programme is truly an amazing experience. You are assigned a supervisor for your project who is very supportive and understandable that you came there to learn. Depending on the role you get, you can do programming, machine learning, hands on, experimental work, control systems or anything else really.

Geneva is a quiet city with friendly and heartwarming people. I would recommend CERN to everyone, especially if they want to travel a lot around Europe.

This was an internship that I had. It was fun being at this research institute because of the welcoming nature of my group. If you are from another country the hard part will be overcoming the jet lag.

Cern is one of the best places to be regarding the work environment.
However, Geneva and Saint Genis are not very lively after work...

My working experience at CERN is absolutely great. My team is friendly and productive and the whole organization has a great job culture. There are a lot of events for bringing the employers together depending on their interests, culture and positions. Working with ROOT team is very interesting. I had to find solutions in a variety of small and big problems and it was a great challenge for me. I really appreciate all of my collegues because they tried from my first day to make me feel comfortable and they give me the opportunity to improve my skills.

No please is like CERN if you want to do research in particle physics. Life there can be hectic sometimes but it is the best laboratory in the world for this field. Salary is usually commensurate. You will meet people from all over the world in a friendly place.
Pros
The best lab ever
Cons
Geneva is crazy expensive

Work was very independent. As long as you showed you were working and producing interesting results the management didn't interfere with the work. As I was a research assistant i was working closely with the Phd student who had designed the initial software.

Bad management, vertical hierarchy, some training available but no possibility of freedom, research or publications. No interest to do the best job, only to do a job.

CERN is a very nice place to work with highly motivated persons.
You will work with very interested projects, win a lot of oxperence.

But, the contracts are mainly for some years (2 - 5 years), and it's create a bad athmosphere.

As a research intern, it was definitely intimidating at times working alongside wizards in any number of fields. Nevertheless, you are guaranteed to learn a lot.
