Pros

MIT has a lot of very great people and a very lively community. Moreover, there is the infinite number of opportunities that you have access to and the things you can do with your life through those opportunities.

Cons

The school is a lot of work and you really need to learn to manage your time well. Sometimes, it is a little hard to focus with so many people around and so many activities going on. Although it is great to have so many opportunities, you also need to learn to choose.

    Former Employee - Graduate Research Assistant At MIT in Cambridge, MA

    I worked at MIT full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with motivated people who love to collaborate. Bright people who help their peers. Flexible schedule. Lots of opportunities to develop technical skills and build a network of peers.

    Cons

    You are at the whim of a professor, whose power-trips go unchecked. Low salary. Some professors expect you to work hours are long, although not always the case and may depend on which professor you work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please create a system of reviews for professors that holds them accountable for how they treat their subordinates and students.
