I have been working at MIT full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Highly dynamic position that requires extensive research experience and broad spectrum of knowledge in various fields. Besides the ability to conduct own research, collaborating with other researchers and supervise graduate students are also part of the duties. Relatively relax and flexible work environment.

Cons

Low salary, and relatively low pressure. Everyone in the academia doing their own job, lack of chance to improve inter-person skills.
