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.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be a clear THIS IS THE APPLICATION LINK on the UROP webpage.

    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.
