Pros

If you enjoy the opportunity of working with some of the brightest minds in the world, both faculty and students, as well as investigating a field of interest that you have chosen and developed yourself, you will love working at MIT.

Cons

If you enjoy strict working hours, and highly defined responsibilities, and a lot of team projects then MIT may not be the place for you. It's for self-directed, highly motivated, highly autonomous people. Boston is an extremely expensive city and it's mostly suburban, so be prepared for a commute.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

MIT "management" (really administration) are tops- I have never worked with more understanding or positive administration.

    I have been working at MIT full-time

    Pros

    This is an amazing place with some of the best peers and colaborators in the world. MIT has strong ties to many people and sectors so finding a network to support a new project or idea is easy. The hours are often flexible.

    Cons

    There is a strong culture of always needing to do better and a sense that what one produces is never as good as it should be.
