    I have been working at MITRE full-time for more than 10 years

    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.

    I have been working at MITRE full-time for more than 5 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
