I have been working at MITRE

Pros

* work/LIFE balance
* Good benefits (health/retirement/PTO, etc)
* competitve starting salary

Cons

* many seemingly interesting projects actually turn out to be a powerpoint engineering job; workload doesn't exist at MITRE since the money is from government. That's why you can have work/life balance and good pay+benefits.
* at caasd only two kinds of skills are needed: air traffic management (ATM) related and JAVA, while at c3i, cyberspace security is the core topic. (still, it requires computer skills) As for analytical skills, as long as you have the degree and graduate from a prestigious school, that's sufficient.
* MITRE is more like an IT company than a real engineering & research company.
* direction is not clear even at higher managements. It takes time (weeks or months) for them to make collective agreement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

make soft-shell easier. Let the employee have the freedom to participate what projects they really are interested in.

    I have been working at MITRE

    Pros

    MITRE has flexible work schedule that allows a good work-life balance. However, there are times when client and project requirements demand more than the normal 40 hours. There is a culture of high quality in all the work we produce for the client.

    Cons

    The client is the Federal government and often I see exciting projects outside of the Federal space that I would like to be involved in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In some parts of employee evaluation, process is more important than outcome. Management needs to evaluate whether the process is stifling effective relationship with employees.
