Not much Growth unless you move around in the system.

Dysfunctional and poorly led administration
Director, Customer Support (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAJune 7, 2016
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.
Pros
Brilliant students and faculty; wonderful campus
Cons
All the rest
