I worked at MIT full-time (More than 3 years)
Good environment for research and learning. Depends on PI. In my case, PI supported education as well.
Some PIs are too busy. People who work independently will take more benefit.
I applied online. I interviewed at MIT (Cambridge, MA).
There is a brief training period and a few meetings with management. The interview process isn't overly rigorous if you have a good attitude and demonstrate a willingness to learn the tour content.
