I have been working at MIT full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Incredibly egalitarian by pretty much any measure, at least in terms of aims and commitments. Very good benefits, including unusually good 401k matching.
And, of course, just the sense of pride and the stimulating environment that comes with working at one of the world's most respected institutions.

Cons

Could be more accomodating of flexible time and sometimes work from home for those whose jobs would permit.

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

    Pros

    Huge wealth of resources, amazing people, a place unlike any other in the world. Really the premier university for higher learning in the world.

    Cons

    No serious communication between upper management and regular workers. Also, no real room for growth within. Most admins are externally hired, and don't always understand

    Advice to Management

    Actually pay attention to the wants of your regular employees and students, and don't base decisions solely off of what you "think is best for them". Because you're wrong. A lot.


  2. "Great university, amazing people to work with!"

    I worked at MIT as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The jobs are relatively simple and the projects are loose in terms of time management.

    Cons

    The hours can sometimes be extremely long (12-16 hours a day) and can start very early in the morning (6AM or earlier).
