When it comes to explaining our unique environment and culture, our staff says it best: 

"Lincoln Laboratory provides access to urgent and compelling problems, and the license to pursue cutting-edge solutions — from the drawing board to operational systems." – Justin Brooke, BA, MA, PhD, ISR & Tactical Systems Division

"My career at the Laboratory has mainly been about opportunities—opportunities to work in the Pacific, to take classes at Harvard, to attend conferences, and to use a cutting-edge architecture like Eclipse Rich Client Platform. Such opportunities are a constant here — and available to everyone." - Jonquil Swann, BS, MS, Air & Missile Defense Assessments Group

"At Lincoln Laboratory, I’ve never been asked to do the same thing over and over again. I’m constantly working on new projects that present new challenges. I’m always developing my skill set." - Lisa Basile, BA, MA, Tactical Defense Systems Group


From a New Employee Network that assists new employees in transitioning into the Laboratory and local area, to active employee resource groups, MIT Lincoln Laboratory is a collegial and welcoming community. Our staff enjoy generous tuition assistance and in-house courses on technical subjects and business management, as well as an on-site fitness facility and numerous sports leagues and clubs.
