Good place to work. Government customer sets the tone for the work.

Pros

Great work/life balance. Great people.

Cons

Getting more and more "corporate" vs "service to the nation." They now have five Federally Funded Research and Development Corporations (FFRDC) under the MITRE Corporation. Benefits have decreased and aren't as outstanding as they were 10 years ago.

    It's a good company but self management goes a long way here.

    Pros

    They have pretty good benefits, and a great work-life balance. You get to work with smart people on interesting projects.

    Cons

    The funding is mostly from the government, which in the current market isn't great. It can be hard to get people to collaborate effectively. You need to be able to manage yourself effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give small teams more financial freedom to make judgement calls based on their own needs.

    Pros

    A flexible environment filled with friendly people who are willing to lend their experience and teamwork. Offers great resources for improvement and has an open work culture.

    Cons

    Sometimes projects are dropped with little to no warning and I feel that there could be more direction given by the management, but otherwise it is fine. There is nothing really wrong or lacking.
