Approves of CEO

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

Pros

You get to work with the best of the best.
Several opportunities to work on difficult problems and make a significant impact on science and technology.
MIT on your resume will guarantee you interview calls, and companies even by-pass some interview rounds to hire you.

Cons

You will be one among the many geniuses in the organization. Unless you are better than a genius, you will have a hard time neing recognized within the organization (receiving recognition outside the organization is much easier and almost guaranteed). If you are not a permanent researcher/faculty, expect poor pay.
