Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a private research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The institute is a land-grant, sea-grant, and space-grant university, with an urban campus that extends more than a mile (1.6 km) alongside the Charles River. The institute also encompasses a number of major off-campus facilities such as the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, the Bates Center, and the...
Apparently, it is one of the best institutes all over the world. But, reality is unleashed by the most popular newspaper. The NewYork times wrote, "Marilee Jones, the dean of admissions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, became well known for urging stressed-out students competing for elite colleges to calm down and stop trying to be perfect. Yesterday she admitted that she had fabricated her own educational credentials, and resigned after nearly three decades at M.I.T. Officials of the institute said she did not have even an undergraduate degree."
Ms Jones publicly accepted, “I misrepresented my academic degrees when I first applied to M.I.T. 28 years ago and did not have the courage to correct my résumé when I applied for my current job or at any time since. I am deeply sorry for this and for disappointing so many in the M.I.T. community and beyond who supported me, believed in me, and who have given me extraordinary opportunities.”
Could not find the skip button (Former Employee) says"Could not find the skip button. This is was a postion that was an summer internship that has been incorrectly flagged for me to answer. Please discard this information."
Financial Coodinator (Current Employee) says"I've learned while working here that hard work does not pay off. They have no concept of cost of living in the Boston area. The department head is great. However, other managers leave much to be desired. Management is very good at hypocrisy and talking out of both sides of their mouths."
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) says"I have work at the Obgyn the manager and staff are bully and disrespectful to new hired staff. You also have to be there on favorite. Cons: None"
Lecturer (Former Employee) says"Bad place to work. People are weird. Secretaries and teachers are weird and strange. Do not pay enough for all the work you do."
Sale Associate (Former Employee) says"It was a door to door sales didn't agree with it at all. It was hard and we worked in all type of weather and at time have had cops called on us because we were walking through the neighborhood. Cons: i had many cons"
Director (Former Employee) says"I was hired for my experience to fill a leadership role and was then not to talk, nor do anything. Any attempt I made to contribute was rebuffed. I was told the concepts were too complicated for me to grasp right away, but in my experience, all they did was talk in circles and took no action. My contract was then terminated. I accepted the position in good faith and took myself out of consideration for other opportunities only to find my professional development compromised. Cons: MIT makes promises it can't keep, sets people up to fail, and doesn't hold itself accountable"
Director, Customer Support (Former Employee) says"Years ago, MIT was a great place to work. Over my many years there, I watched it steadily decline as new poorly skilled and either military or corporate minded leadership was brought in. By the time I left, it had become a very dysfunctional place in which bullying, public verbal abuse, misrepresentation of data, lack of communication and transparency, and hiding behind consultant reports and buzzwords had become the norm. Cons: All the rest"
Leadership (Former Employee) says"MIT Medical has so much potential that is being squandered. Wonderful people work there, and are treated badly. The management does not seek input from their many thoughtful, capable, and experienced employees. The culture is top down, with the worst people at the top. When they hear that employees are dismayed by lack of communication, they redouble there employees what to think and do. Management does not engage employees in problem solving or utilize the skills and experience of employees. This dysfunction applies at all levels of MIT Medical. Management is intent on applying the worst aspects of health care reform to demolish what was once a truly patient-centered system, turning it into a mediocre insurance-centered system. Management lacks imagination and staff are united only in their dismay at the unfortunate changes being imposed. It is a sad situation. Cons: Negative culture"

Admin (Current Employee) says"just when you expect MIT to be great and found out these people live in the 70s. Management is extremely poor. They def. play favorite, and they don't care. My manager is so cheap, he doesn't believe in reward employee that go above and beyond. He simply said "these people get pay to work and that's it". There's absolutely no growth. Very poor working conditions. It's like a zoo in the office everyday because nobody knows how to work efficiently and effective. It took 4 people to find 1 piece of paper very day for at least 30 mins. People show up to work and just sit on computer online shopping, and pretend to be busy, pushing their work to other people. Apparently, my coworker show up smelling like alcohol and there was complaint against him regarding alcohol incident but my boss does nothing about it. I don't know since when it's ok to be drunk while working. These people refuse to change for the good, they been doing whatever they do since the 70s for so long, they are afraid of technology. How ironic because this is MIT. They don't know how to work the printer, fax machine, and don't even get me started on how they DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE PDF to do a simple edit text and combine files. It's true that when you do your job so well that you get to do other people job. The people here are lazy. Cons: everything"
Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) says"Politics rule, saturated with favoritism, nepotism and bullies. Lower wage staff are not valued, harassment is ignored, backstabbing, bullies win and HR does nothing because they fear litigation."
RESEARCH ASSISTANT (Former Employee) says"Sometimes publishing rubbish papers fast is more important than the underlying science behind the paper. The work/life balance is not existent you live for the work."
Student Life Office Project Assistant (Former Employee) says"MIT Sloan is over-reliant on temporary workers. I was in my position for a year and a half and never received consideration for a full time position. I was very much treated like a temporary employee."
technician (Current Employee) says"Good benefits, especially transportation benefits. Average medical care at MIT medical. Busy work schedule, plans can change in the day for work. Summer is fun."
