Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at MIT.

Interview Details

For higher-level positions, expect to meet with at least 5 people, as well as the entire team (support staff). It will be a full day of meetings. You will be invited to a lunch, where you will be evaluated for your soft skills, personality, and ability to carry a sophisticated a conversation. Be prepared to talk about MIT news and things you might share with a donor.

Negotiation Details
MIT doesn't like to negotiate salaries. Push back and you'll work with HR directly, who likes to set a budget and keep it firm. Though there is room for negotiation, expect it to be tough. There's an unspoken rule that working at MIT is considered to be its own reward.

    The process took 1+ week - interviewed at MIT in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    It seemed like a good place to work but not too much room for advancement. The interview was fine and they were upfront about everything. Reading between the lines, one could see that the place was a decent one to work at with TONS and TONS, really an incredible amount of great benefits, but that the salary was going to be relatively low w/o much room for growth....
