I have been working at MIT full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

If you are content to be a drone with no prospects for growth or learning, this is your place.

Cons

Managers are the worst. Morale is poor. No one really cares about their job. Typical employee goal is to do as little as possible and if something goes wrong blame everyone around them.

Advice to Management

Need to change the company culture.

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

    Pros

    the challenge and the steep learning curve. also, the school expectancy that its students should be proficient in more than one field of science. A very good place to meet exceptionally smart people. also, it was surprising how much money the school pay for student group for extra-curricular activities

    Cons

    Hard. sometime depressing. challenging research topics. not all departments have a system in place to graduate their students in 5 years or less

    Advice to Management

    better screening accepting students. sometimes it seems they dont match well a student profile/knowledge/background to a research topic. Not all departments have a good system in place for student development and research progress

    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.
