    Pros

    Excellent benefits, Gym access, huge number of club sports. Free tuition to take one class per semester. Minimal paperwork. Constant free food and lectures.

    Cons

    Boston is cold. Housing in the area is very expensive. There are no real cons other than this one, sorry.

    Pros

    MIT has a fantastic work environment and the best academic environment anywhere in the world. Highly recommended for a postdoc or a professorship.

    Cons

    The postdocs here don't have the same sorts of rights that they do elsewhere. A few that come to mind: gym membership costs are the same as staff rather than students, so $500/yr; the salary is a little low; and we have no consulting rights and the IP policy is definitely skewed in MIT's favor.
