Pros

I've been fortunate to provide MITRE-unique services to sponsors

Cons

Too many cost shaving activities that used to differentiate MITRE from other companies. Less office space for each employee, reduced our retirement benefits, reduced our leave, reduced the amount of leave we can carry over, new two week timecard makes it looks as though you get more flexibility but managers have been told to limit approval to 4 hours a month. That's flexible????? That's probably why we're no longer on the Fortune Best Companies to work for anymore.

Advice to Management

Don't use Glass Door as a measuring stick....I never heard of it until talk about the new timecards mentioned it. If we are not a

    Pros

    Work and family life balanced. Good benefits. Management is good.

    Cons

    No real proofessional development for Admins. You really have to fight for it in most cases unless you hae a good manager Promotions only to those are "in" with management.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your admins. They are the back bone of the company and are often looked over.

    Pros

    Ability to work with some great, motivated, intellectually honest scientists and engineers.

    Cons

    Difficult to move within the company. Top heavy management. Focus on revenue generation over quality in too many groups, becoming part of culture.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retention as opposed to bringing in and paying more to new talent. Focus on the core value of public benefit vs. the path towards becoming a body shop.
