    Great place to work but slow in recognizing impact of younger staff - very 'old school.'

    Pros

    MITRE is in most ways a fantastic place to work. The company provides good flexibility and stability, and provides work that makes a difference to the well-being of the United States. The benefits package is very good for the industry.

    Cons

    MITRE tends to exhibit many older company ideals such as secretive promotions and compensation decisions, cliquish upper management tendencies and a "wait your turn" mentality. Overall, the positives outweigh the negatives.

    Advice to Management

    Institute clear processes for promotion and compensation practices and beware of watering down the brand in a well-intentioned drive to reduce costs.

    Pros

    Ability to apply skills in support of the Government.
    Ability to make decision and apply them to sponsor support.
    MITRE IT Infrastructure and support.
    Benefits before retiring.

    Cons

    Requirements to support the Government in their offices as Action Officers and then accused by MITRE Management of going native.
    Out of sight and out of mind attitude when it comes to Salery increases and and Promotions.
    Need to continually provide self accomplishment Sound Bytes to Management to achieve status in the "Iner Circle".
    Workloads that demand 60-70 hours a week to be successful.
    Elimination of all Retiree Benifits when you reach 65, even thought you were paying 100% of there costs.

    Advice to Management

    Get real and find out what is really happening in the employee trenchs, get rid of the AC-6 dead weight, provide competative Salery Increases (vs. what the Government does) and eliminate the massive Bureacracy that has increased over the years.
