Intresting Place to work, but stuck in the past
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Lexington, MA – July 6, 2018
MIT Lincoln Laboratory is a really interesting place to work, with many different options to work depending on your interest, there is almost something for everyone. The benefits are really good, and the personal employee interest groups (groups for Veterans, Woman, LBGT, and more) give people the chance to network inside the lab.
But as an administrative assistant, I find this job dull. When I came in for my interview I asked if I would be able to have a flexibly work schedule and the ability to work from home at least 1 day a week, I was told yes to both. But once I started I found out that was not true. They basically treat you like a 1950's secretary and don't know anything and this was the only job you could get. The only chance to move up in this position is if want to move up to division admin. or get your masters degree in finance then become a business admin.
Basically if you are an engineer or someone who has multiple degrees this is a great place for you. If you are an administrator, don't expect much.
Nice people, Intersting Place
