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

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.
