Current Employee – been working at MITRE
Pros – MITRE is a good place to work if one needs a work-life balance, is at an advanced stage of his/her career (near retirement) or wants job security.
Cons – MITRE is not a good fit for career-focused employees. Promotion rates are slower at MITRE than at for-profit companies. Pay for performance is nonexistent: salary increases are very small (1.5% salary increase is budgeted for 2012).
Advice to Senior Management – The results of the last employee survey are pretty revealing in terms of employee dissatisfaction with the lack of career opportunities and are consistent across the company. The company ranking in the "100 best companies to work for" list continues to drop year after year. MITRE barely made the list this year (96 over 100). This is a clear sign that MITRE should wake up from its past glory days to review its pay for performance system, organizational structure and career paths across the board to retain its employees. The work life balance trade-off does not compensate for the nonexistent salary increases and lack of monetary recognition for high performance. The lack of monetary incentives for high performance recognition and opportunities for advancement will make it harder to retain top performer employees.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
