    I have been working at MITRE full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Depending on the project and location, flexible hours and mobile work add to the great work-life balance. Coworkers are intelligent, dedicated, and generally supportive. Stable and steady work, with good benefits.

    Cons

    Top-heavy structure and low turnover make it difficult to advance. Not a particularly youthful or lively place to work; Forced icebreakers and chess in the library is about as wild as it gets. Managers are MIA much of the time.

    The company has grown to the point where it is struggling to figure out what to do with itself. Benefits are being trimmed. It enjoys a cushy market niche and is still one of the more reputable government contractors around. If you are analytical, have good technical credentials, and enjoy collaborating to help the government, you will fit in well. If you are more of a doer, seeking advancement and cutting-edge technical work, you may get restless. Good for interns needing resume experience or late-careerists and retirees wanting to coast into an easy work routine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top-heavy management and overhead is taking its toll. Do something about the cost and value added of deadweight senior staff. 360-degree reviews would be a good place to start. Get out more and engage with customers and staff.
