It was a good experience for growth.

Summer Technical (Former Employee)
Colorado Springs, CO

ProsMITRE is a great company, with many opportunites for growth. It is easy to work on projects that interest you. The management is very understanding in creating a good work-life balance.

ConsIt is a government job, so there are hoops to jump through related to security. It also offers slightly lower compensation, although that is accounted for with good benefits.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
