Current Employee - Graduate Student in Cambridge, MA
Current Employee - Graduate Student in Cambridge, MA

I have been working at MIT full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The faculty and financial resources are better than at any other academic research institute I know of (from conversations with peers). There is (for better or worse) quite a large value associated with the name, and with this comes an expectation to publish in high-impact journals.

Cons

The expectation to publish in high-impact journals creates a high-stress situation, since for the most part the research is conducted in very fast-moving fields.
