"At MIT, it really comes down to your manager, lab, and coworkers as to what the environment will be like. I have seen very supportive teams, as well as ones that treat genders differently. Try to chat with team members to get a good sense of what the job will be like. "

"There are great benefits, including a solid family leave policy, access to childcare (if you get on the waitlist early enough), and lot's of opportunity to learn and grow. Once you're in the door here, it's easy to move from department to department over the years, to grow your income and expand your network. You can find departments with great work life balance. "

"The level of job flexibility, family-friendliness, and just general work environment changes quite a bit from department to department, especially between academic and support/administrative staff. Keep that in mind!"
"There are women networks that are quite supportive and provide a lot of mentorship. Sometimes it just takes time to reach out to find the correct resources."
"I was happy with the benefits although I cannot speak to parental benefits as I did not make use of them at the time."
"I've worked for MIT's Lincoln Laboratory, and MIT main campus for a total of 15 years. Professional women are a minority at MIT; they are fa majority among support staff, the lowest classified, where they are treated as hourly service workers. When MIT does mention "Women at MIT", it means women faculty, students, and some administrators completely ignoring the majority of women who work there. MIT is very much male dominated. Any benefit(s) that might greatly improve conditions for working women must have a demonstrated benefit to MIT's male-centric culture."
