I worked at MITRE

Pros

Good work. Good people. Good sponsors.

Cons

Long promotion timeframes and small salary increases.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think outside the systems engineering (BS, MS) mentality in terms of people. Only choose middle managers based upon "business" and "people" skills. Technical expertise is a distant third in priority.

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, Opportunities for education, Flex hours, work/life balance. Excellent 401K.

    Cons

    Promotion are slow to get. Salary raises meager. Frustrating client (government). Excepting 401K and education, benefits are not that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devise a career path for techies or you will lose them.
