Pros

I worked in MIT Sloan and was given a nearly limitless budget for experimentation. The difference between this and typical universities purses was highly significant.

Cons

MIT bureaucracy is similar to government (many levels of redundancy) - making it sometimes difficult to do things outside of the box (especially when they deal with making or spending money).

Advice to Management

"Management" in this case is supervisor dependent. For me, it was excellent.
