    I worked at MITRE full-time


    The FFRDC role, when applied correctly, is a unique and important role. There are pockets of technical excellence within MITRE, but those pockets have been getting slowly killed over the years by bureaucracy and politics. If you aren't top tier technical talent and want an easy job where it's next to impossible to get fired, MITRE is for you.


    MITRE has a technical talent problem. They have been shedding top tier staff and have been replacing them with empty suit / program managers. The quality of the work they do has dramatically declined. MITRE is growing, however their new business areas are dominated by non-technical 'consultants' who masquerade as engineers. Cliques, politics, dishonesty, and abuse of technical staff abound. MITRE has sacrificed quality work programs for the sake of it's own organizational dysfunction.

    Advice to Management

    Admit you have a problem and stop relying on the fact that you are growing and continue to get work just by your company name and history. Get off the top deck of MITRE 2 and start engaging with the workforce who has talent and protect them. Trim the fat from your existing "technical" staff. Learn how to manage.
