    I worked at MITRE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You will find you colleagues at MITRE to be highly professional people with deep levels of honesty and integrity. The support staff at MITRE (in Bedford & McLean) that helps global staff behind the scenes is also excellent.

    Cons

    MITRE is classified as a not-for-profit Federally Funded Research & Development Center (FFRDC). As such MITRE does not bid on or compete for contracts. Its funds are allocated by Congress and are disbursed by the government agencies that are its sponsors, supposedly to perform work that would be a conflict of interest for a private, for-profit Professional Services Contractor. However, in many cases, it is only at the dual headquarters of Bedford, MA and McLean, VA that one is likely to perform cutting edge research or systems engineering studies for the U.S. government. All too often, at other MITRE sites, the government customers (sponsors) see MITRE staff as completely interchangeable with the PSC staff that MITRE is not allowed to compete with. And to avoid losing government work and government dollars, MITRE management does not push back hard enough to enforce the bright line required by law. Although there were certainly reasons for my departure that were entirely my own fault, at least 40% of the reason, was that MITRE only paid lip service to my complaints that we were not being treated any differently than the other PSCs (such as Booz Allen Hamilton) that were supporting our U.S. Army sponsors. Although we held weekly MITRE teleconferences on this topic, there was no attempt to raise these issues with the U.S. Army civilian in charge of this particular group for fear of losing future sponsor opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    As someone who was "just staff" and who does not fully understand the complexities of the issues that management has to deal with, I am not sure what advice to give. However, I suggest that MITRE management either be honest with your own staff in telling them when a problem with a government sponsor (federal civilian) cannot be fixed until the following fiscal year, or show more boldness in complaining to the U.S. government sponsors that for Congressionally mandated legal reasons, MITRE staff cannot be treated as being interchangeable with the staff of Professional Service Contractors such as Booz Allen Hamilton.
