    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!


  2. "Good reputation, however, professors are too busy with business instead of teaching"
