I worked at MIT full-time
-Great Benefits and opportunity to learn and collaborate with best minds in country.
-Not many cons. It's a good place to prepare for graduate school, but not a permanent career
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at MIT (Cambridge, MA) in May 2018.
Applied online, had a phone interview within the month, and was invited up two weeks after that. Throughout the process, the emphasis is on finding out if you know your own strengths and weaknesses. For the former, describe times when you used them; and for the latter, what did you learn from it / how have you improved. Other parts of the interview were professional (ascertaining you had the appropriate background) and personal (hobbies, workplace/area culture) in nature. Included lunch and a tour of the facility.
