I worked at MIT full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

MIT provided me multiple opportunities to pursue new areas of expertise. The leadership and culture fostered respect and deep cultural values for individuality and professionalism.

Cons

Departments can be quite large and at times one could question, "Does anyone know I am here?" However, camaraderie and opportunities to grow abound. No matter what interest you may have, someone at MIT was working on it and making the world a better place.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing - a remarkable place for dedicated professionals in every field.
