    I have been working at MIT Lincoln Laboratory full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best mix of the benefits of academia and Industry. Risky, interesting work, without the constant need to publish. Generally well-funded projects. Very flat hierarchy, with management promoted from the engineering ranks.

    Cons

    Publishing and conferences quite difficult due to release review process. Management that comes from engineering may not have the best managerial skills. Flat hierarchy makes advancement a bit mysterious.

    Advice to Management

    Advancement path is opaque. Promoting engineers to management has many benefits, but some basic management mistakes will be made.
