    I have been working at MITRE

    Pros

    The way the government engages MITRE is strategic in nature and with a level of access and influence not afforded to those working in the commercial contracting space. MITRE allows you to apply engineering excellence through a unique type of relationship with the government: the Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC)

    Cons

    Turnover and growth are lower than at commercial companies meaning there may appear to be fewer opportunities for advancement. The corporate culture is one of inclusion and so some employees feel that decisions can take too much time and/or result in many rounds of discussions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MITRE management has to work hard to find a ablance between the needs of the sponsors and our commitment to FFRDC operational excellence, and new developments in human capital management. Management should look for ways to adapt our internal organization to meet the needs of the next generation of engineers while keeping the delivery of mission-critical solutions intact. A tough job, no doubt about it...

    Pros

    Work life balance is great and overall benefits are def. plus.

    Cons

    Company is set in its ways and runs in a old fashion corporate structure. There not so open to younger employees new ideas or taking advantage of the amount of potential some people have. Pay definitely needs to be better, yearly raises need to increase by double when comparing to outside companies.

    There are too many people here that are set in there ways and are not as productive compared to recent graduates. Lots of Bureaucracy when it comes to promotion and raises. Only those who have constant relationships with upper management are rewarded year by year. The same people seem to be wining the all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should have a more active role in knowing whats going on in the lower ranks.
