    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Cambridge, MA (US)

    I worked at MIT full-time (more than an year)


    I liked the benefits package I received from MIT, I also enjoyed the difference in day to day work, fun events around campus, community feel, and location, career stability (MIT will always exist)


    Career development, hard to jump from assistant role to an administrative role, not as much growth opportunity, raises are every 6 months but very little

Be prepared to talk about why you chose to study a technical discipline, and what things you do outside of class and in your own time to cultivate your interest in engineering. These people are not so concerned with things like athletics and ordinary club activities, they want people who are intrinsically motivated to learn about science and the interview process reflects this.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) really takes the prize.
