I have been working at MIT full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The Sasisekharan lab was the best lab that I could have ever worked for. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, accepting, and helpful. They were good people. Everyone worked really hard and together. It was a real community even though people were working on separate projects. Also, the spirit of MIT is just great in itself.

Cons

Nothing. It might be nice to have more cheap, good places to eat for lunch even though there are already a lot.

Advice to Management

Terrific. Keep it up!

    Good reputation, good people to work with

    Cons

    Very competitive environment, very little attention from your advisor

    Advice to Management

    MIT is a great school, because it attracts the best talents around the world, however, the professors should pay more attention to people, instead of their business

    I have been working at MIT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are great to work with, and the environment is stimulating. There is always a great variety of interesting events going on around campus if you look for them.

    Cons

    If you're a postdoctoral fellow with your own fellowship funding, you don't get the same benefits as postdoctoral affiliates, who count as employees. Fellows only count as "affiliate" status, which means they end up paying much more for health insurance, the campus gym, and so on. It's unfortunate, and doesn't seem to me to make much sense.
