An organization drowning in its own hubris

I have been working at MITRE

Pros

Flexible work arrangements; steady work; strong business development. A lot of the work has become very boring.

Cons

Posted AC job categories and responsibilities don't match actual promotions. It does not matter what you do as long as you kiss up to the right manager. Employees are punished for requesting guidance or understanding on why they are not advancing by being told they are only out for themselves despite feedback from the same managers that the way to advance is to work hard and be proactive. Mixed messages lead to great confusion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are not gods.

    MITRE managers lack emotional intelligence

    Pros

    People are the best part of MITRE

    Cons

    Department Managers bow down to the mission managers. Mission managers control the work. If you work for a department and have a dispute with the mission folks, don't expect your department manager to spend time to get to the root of the dispute. He/she may not be willing to stand up for you.

    Little "true" teamwork. Most people are focused on making themselves look good and getting a 1 or 2 rating which will result in a pay raise and eventual promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get department managers, group leaders, etc. to care about people and improve their emotional intelligence.

    Pros

    benefits, stressfree environment, smart collegues, support for worklife balance

    Cons

    federal red tape, slow progress, sometimes too much travel, being non-profit low overhead including no free coffee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    overall very good. Lower level would benefit from more engagement in knowing where the company is headed and more insight into corporate management and direction
