Hard but fulfilling work

Graduate Student Researcher (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA (US)

I have been working at MIT part-time for more than a year

ProsIf you like hard but meaningful work, this is the right place. Knowing that you are at the cutting edge of research is exciting. Graduate stipend is good enough to live on, and health benefits are great.

ConsAs other people have pointed out, you are working with the best and brightest, so it is easy to get down on yourself if you aren't "perfect." Sometimes the hours are very long--expect to work 50+ hours a week for a "part-time" RA.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
