Very smart people, great name to have on resume

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Lexington, MA

I worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory as an intern for less than a year

ProsGood group of interns every summer, ~150 interns. Very smart people, get to see different divisions and attend interesting seminars. Prospect for hiring back is very good if you are interested in starting a career there.

ConsLong bus ride if you accept the housing at MIT (45 minutes each way), office space is rather drab. Pay is not as good as large software engineering companies like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake lunches free.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
