I have been working at MIT full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The Sasisekharan lab was the best lab that I could have ever worked for. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, accepting, and helpful. They were good people. Everyone worked really hard and together. It was a real community even though people were working on separate projects. Also, the spirit of MIT is just great in itself.

Cons

Nothing. It might be nice to have more cheap, good places to eat for lunch even though there are already a lot.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Terrific. Keep it up!

    Good reputation, however, professors are too busy with business instead of teaching

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MIT is a great school, because it attracts the best talents around the world, however, the professors should pay more attention to people, instead of their business

    I have been working at MIT full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The culture of curiosity and investigation. Good health coverage with convenient on campus facilities. Relatively generous vacation and personal day policies. Wide availibility of technical and social activities.

    Cons

    Annual compensation increases tend not to keep up with inflation. Although the policies are fairly generous and most peer and supervisior interations are positive, human resources as a department if fairly obstructionist if issues do come up between emplyees and supervisor and more interested in problem issolation than resolution. (pick your supervisor and peers well in your interview ).

    Also while equipment and physical resources are easy to aquire expanding personel (even if demonstrably cheaper than adding equipment and external contrats) can be difficult whech results in cronic (though not generally severe) understaffing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend more time on developing human resources in a positive what rather than simple law suit avoidance
