What I like about working at MIT is that it’s an opportunity to put puzzles together. If you like to work hard and you want to contribute, you can do that here.

Lisa Breede
— Human Resources Administrator, MIT Media Lab

MIT has been at the forefront of flexibility for parents. Because this is a 24/7 community, with students and families living here, it’s not just an employer. Your family becomes part of the MIT family.

Alyce Johnson
— Manager of Staff Diversity and Inclusion, Human Resources

In my role there’s something new to do every single day. The senior leadership here treats people with respect, people here are willing to share their knowledge, and they’re experts in what they do.

Richard Lay
— Special Projects Officer, Office of Sponsored Programs

I arrived here a soldier and I’m a veteran now and a strong veterans' advocate. What I like most about working at MIT is the commitment level and passion of everyone here. You don’t have to be a PHD or a rocket scientist to contribute here.

Leo McGonagle
— Executive Director, Gordon Engineering Leadership Program

I came here through a program that re-trains mature workers. You feel such a sense of community here, and you can re-invent yourself many times. At MIT, there’s a whole world here. 

Juanita Battle
— Patient Services Representative, MIT Medical

I love the diversity of MIT. I like that there are so many walks of life. You are dealing with the top minds in the world, and being able to exchange dialogue with them is really cool.

Aaron Donaghey
— Supervisor of Event Planning, Campus Activities Complex

It’s more than just an employer, it’s a community. When someone says they’ve been here 25 years, it’s not like 25 years at a corporate organization, because you might have had five completely different careers here.

Kariuki Thande
— Financial Officer, Department of Physics
