Pros

World class institution of higher learning; very reasonable work/life balance; rewards initiative

Cons

People work very independently and, though it's changing, there is a "no praise" culture

Advice to Management

Could make it even more explicit to new administrative staff how universities work; especially the relationship between an independent faculty and the quality of research produced by American universities.

    Pros

    Joining MIT you will MIT is a fantastic place to work if you want to solve some of the most important problems facing the human race, or dreams fantastically about the applications of science and engineering to the future.

    Cons

    It's a high energy environment, not exactly a place where you get to sit down and smell the rose all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Hockfield and Co are doing a great job of continually expanding MIT. I feel like the tuition cost per student is perhaps overestimated.
