I worked at MIT full-time for less than a year

Pros

It was fun, I learned a lot the faculty were great. Everyone had a lot of fun and its cheap to work there and what not

Cons

It is research which isn't that cool I'd rather have worked in industry. Also I stayed on campus all summer which is kind of boring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work hard play hard

    I have been working at MIT full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to work with the best of the best.
    Several opportunities to work on difficult problems and make a significant impact on science and technology.
    MIT on your resume will guarantee you interview calls, and companies even by-pass some interview rounds to hire you.

    Cons

    You will be one among the many geniuses in the organization. Unless you are better than a genius, you will have a hard time neing recognized within the organization (receiving recognition outside the organization is much easier and almost guaranteed). If you are not a permanent researcher/faculty, expect poor pay.
