I have been working at MIT as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

They take really good care of their employees. The benefits are great and they support staff well with professional development seminars, large gatherings, and the work-life balance center.

Cons

Things are a little decentralized so it's hard to get things done sometimes. Students are also all very stressed and something that tension seeps into the staff atmosphere. Because things are so decentralized, I get the sense that the culture of individual offices varies drastically and thus impacts one's experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to try and coordinate university-wide staff communication.

    I have been working at MIT full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people. The best thing about MIT is that you have the greatest people here. The professor are wellknow in their field. Your classmates are smart and hard working.

    The future is good. You have a lot of opportunities here.

    Cons

    The compensation is low, for professors, graduate students, and postdocs.
    The professors expect a lot from their student. (maybe that is a pro.)
