    I worked at MIT part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    MIT is a wonderful place to work. If you are in admin staff you can count on solid opportunities for career development, generous vacation benefits, and great people around every corner. I have taken advantage of the TAP program (Tuition Reimbursement) and the pension and for many years used MIT Medical which has a small-town, caring, competent staff.

    Cons

    Performance reviews can be something you need to ask for. Dealing with some of the Ivory Tower perspectives can be maddening.

    I worked at MIT part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You are working with "the smartest guys in the room," determining the future of the smartest kids in the country. It's quite a responsibility - one taken extremely seriously, yet I don't know when I have ever laughed more at a job in my life! Working in admissions at MIT was and always will be one of the highlights of my career in education.

    Cons

    Long hours reading endless applications. Making sure you stop when students start to sound alike because you're tired. Then it's time to put the applications away and start again later.
