Current Employee - Senior Administrative Assistant in Cambridge, MA

I have been working at MIT

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Great place to start career off. Not a place to stay at in the long-term.

    I have been working at MIT

    Pros

    Great benefits package, relatively good people to work with, looks great on the resume.

    Cons

    -No room for advancement. You'll be pigeonholed into the role of an administrative assistant forever.
    -The (some) students here have terrible egos and lack basic common sense.
    -The pay is what it is. Grateful to be working but for what is being paid and the work that's being done, it's depressing.

    Current Employee - Accounts Payable Representative in Cambridge, MA

    I have been working at MIT

    Pros

    The culture is very diverse and the benefits are exceptional. The intelligence and skills of the professors, etc. are immense. As one of the leading universities in the world, there is so much to learn as an employee. Great opportunity to experience a learning machine at its best.

    Cons

    The gap between hourly and salary employees is immense and difficult to change. The 'professionals' have many great perks, and the hourly employees have little.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication. Better HR practices for all employees
