Great R&D company

Senior Information Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
McLean, VA

ProsAs a Federally Funded Research and Development Center, MITRE has the unique advantage of getting to speak objectively and truthfully to the government. I never feel as if I am selling myself or my company due to our non-competitive nature.

ConsThe company has a relatively flat hierarchy, which can be troubling to younger employees who want to feel they are progressing in their career through promotions.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo make a better environment for younger employees, figure out a way to have more performance feedback in the AC2-AC4 range to help the employees feel they are advancing in their careers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
