Current Employee - Senior MultiDisciplinary Systems Engineer in McLean, VA

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.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Systems Engineer in McLean, VA

    I have been working at MITRE

    Pros

    Commitment to training and education
    Many different opportunities
    Work life balance is the best
    Comprehensive benefits

    Cons

    Promotion is very difficult even if you have done a great job and there is little feedback as to why someone got promoted over someone else, and the fact you have to wait a year in between promotion cycles is very long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proactively find your best employees and mentor then so that they do not find incentives to leave.
