    I worked at MIT part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Students get paid to do work on campus and work with professors they respect. Many times they get very valuable experiences and great recommendations

    Cons

    The pay is very low (9.25/hr), and the online application process is rather difficult to access for some reason... There needs to be a clear THIS IS THE APPLICATION LINK on the webpage. Sometimes, the professors abuse students to do BS work. Not super common though.
