I have been working at MIT full-time
Very vibrant community and a top place to do research. Hands down!
There are a lot of pressure.
I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MIT (Cambridge, MA) in February 2015.
Smooth, efficient, and quick. Felt collaborative instead of interrogative. Questions were relevant to the position being applied to. Interviewer was warm and enthusiastic for the interview. Questions focused a lot on how to contribute to the community / role.
