I have been working at MIT as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

- great people to work with (smart, creative, friendly, and helpful)
- surrounded by the latest technology
- excellent facilities and resources for whatever you want to make
- exciting research topics in every department
- great location (right next to Boston)

Cons

- crazy workload (don't forget to eat your meals!)
- paperwork takes forever to go through
But overall, not too much to say here.

Advice to Management

Keep up the sense of freedom and invention that I've loved about this place!

    I have been working at MIT as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I gained some research experience, particularly how to model laboratory experiments, and in the process I learned that scientific research wasn't for me.

    Cons

    I was never really included as a full-fledged member of the lab. I was paid poorly and overall did not have a great experience.

    Advice to Management

    I would say that in the future you should be sure that you iron out a specific payment plan with any employee you take on before offering meager wages and weekly hours that are not enough to live on.

    I worked at MIT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    MIT offers great benefits, including tuition assistance, good insurance, and a good 401k match. There is a real sense of community at MIT, and my coworkers were excellent. The work/life balance was also very good for this position.

    Cons

    There was not a clear career path, and it was a little difficult to find the next step. But if you met with HR and tried actively to stay in the community, you could find a job in project coordination and eventually management.
