I worked at MITRE full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Can take work home as an option

Cons

Takes ten years or more to get promoted to next grade up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce AC6 and AC7 positions and promote more AC3s and AC4s to AC5s. AC6s dont contribute, just add more management oversight.

    I have been working at MITRE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the people you work with are extremely sharp and driven to do what is right for the government agencies they serve and the American taxpayer. Work-life balance is very real and everyone is encouraged to take time off and keep their work hours under control. There is constant opportunity for non-traditional "career advancement": working on tasks outside of your experience/degree, training, and collaboration.

    Cons

    Traditional "Career Advancement" (i.e. promotion) is slow and pay is lower than the for-profit contractor firms. For individuals who need rigorous structure, the highly matrixed environment will be daunting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep bringing on fresh young talent that we can mentor and train.
