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.

    I have been working at MIT

    Pros

    Great colleagues, excellent classes, very high quality program, no other program of this caliber for the material I wanted to study.

    Cons

    Can be competitive even when no necessary, not as nurturing as it could be, seems like there is never really any time off, when not working, feel guilty for not working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to loosen up the lab atmosphere and promote more of a collegiate feel. Right now, if you are not part of a lab, it is hard to feel like you exist.
