No opinion of CEO

I have been working at MIT full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great colleagues that are always willing to help out and provide advice.
Freedom to pursue own research interests (if adviser lets you)
Lots of resources when needed, never felt constraint by lack of resources

Hours can be long and unpredictable.
Actual situation very dependent on research advisers.
Some infrastructure (office and lab-space out-dated).

Advice to Management

Invest in existing infrastructure, not just new buildings on campus.
