    The benefits are amazing. They're a bit expensive but given the pay it's not a big deal

    Good work life balance, expensive healthcare

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Lexington, Massachusetts

    A ton of time off, there was only 1 or two months a year with no “holiday”, but you accrue vacation days so fast and they are so generous with vacation days, it felt like a part time job at full time salary.

    Excellent educational benefits and opportunities to learn. One of few companies with a pension.

    They have a solid benefits package that is a cross between academic and industrial benefits all under the MIT umbrella.

    401k with 5 per cent match plus non contributory pension. $5000 tuition reimbursement. Excellent health and dental insurance

    They like to point to their benefit package as something that sets them apart from other employers and for the most part it does, except for health insurance which costs more than my spouse's while providing about the same level of coverage. Being part of the MIT HR network definitely helps provide those nice perks (i.e. pension) that are not commonly found.
