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

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing, they offer everything from insurance to tuition assistance. Also, they match whatever you put into your 401K up to a certain amount.

    Cons

    Depending on what your position is, your work/life balance can be rather hectic. If you are working in the labs then its very likely you will put 40+ hour work weeks. If you work in the office, you have many vacation days/personal days/sick days.
