    Pros

    There are a lot of smart people. The environment is friendly and motivating. Moreover, the opportunity is fair to everyone.

    Cons

    Too much pressure before obtaining a tenure. Extremely hard to qualify to be a professor here. Little assurance of a life time job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on keeping the traditional characteristic of MIT instead of expanding into totally new realms solely for commercial purpose.
