Pros

MITRE offers a wide array of technical opportunities for motivated professionals. During my 23 years with the company I had the privilege to work on some fascinating projects in wonderful locations that included Virginia, California, Hawaii, and Australia.

Cons

I don't have any significant issues with MITRE.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep motivating new employees by offering different tasks from the ones they were hired to perform.

    Pros

    The work that you can do at MITRE is always interesting and they expect it to be. You can easily shift to a different project if you don't like the one you are on. Also there are very flexible schedules and it is not a problem to work from home.

    Cons

    The only downside is that you will not make as much as other places. This is balanced by the flexibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making the pay better would do incredible things to keep people.

    Pros

    Good work can be had. Independent, in-depth, technical with a fusion of other factors. MITRE people can beome very trusted by their sponsors. Good technology support of workers.

    Cons

    Hands down the biggest con is the management. Management seems to be picked from a small subset of bright-smile people - who haven't demonstrated management skills elsewhere. Currently, this is part of the "generation balance" initiative: Just pick someone from the right age (e.g. 30s, 40s) as the current, new leader (for when the old farts retire). Who cares if they don't have any leadership experience or skills. Hey, maybe a training class will fix it - yeah, right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new "MITRE Way" is a return to the former discredited matrix management style. A massive breakdown in sponsor/project leader communications - breaking down task leader, worker, government communications on what is suposed to be worked.
