    Current Employee - Lab Manager in Cambridge, MA

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

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing, they offer everything from insurance to tuition assistance. Also, they match whatever you put into your 401K up to a certain amount.

    Cons

    Depending on what your position is, your work/life balance can be rather hectic. If you are working in the labs then its very likely you will put 40+ hour work weeks. If you work in the office, you have many vacation days/personal days/sick days.

    I worked at MIT

    Pros

    Great education, I got to do wonderful things with wonderful people. Fantastic environment and attitude towards learning.

    Cons

    I would not recommend going there for undergraduate education. It is too hyper focused to give a decent understanding of the larger context of technology work.
