Pros

There is a strong focus on working in the public interest, even if that means less MITRE staff on the job, the truth is the truth. The leadership tries hard to keep the employees from just falling in line with the government sponsors because it is easy, they work hard to keep us focused on what the government SHOULD be doing.

Cons

Because of the public interest and the support of the government, MITRE does not control it's own destiny the way a private company does. We don't sell things to the government, we try to make the government better and more efficient - sometimes our best work needs to be done where the government is most dysfunctional - that can be hard for employees to do, especially new employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay focused on controlling costs, we are making progress, let's not get comfortable.

    Pros

    - Important, satisfying work in the public interest
    - Abundance of technical challenges and interesting, leading-edge technology projects
    - Freedom to learn and grow in a variety of technical disciplines
    - Freedom and mobility to change careers while staying in the same company
    - Great compensation, benefits, training and educational assistance
    - Job offerings at numerous domestic and international sites provide cultural opportunities if you are willing to move
    - Excellent work/life balance
    - Phased retirement that allows company to retain highly experienced staff well beyond retirement age
    - Intelligent, motivated and committed people

    Cons

    - Congressional ceiling limits company growth and ability to support our nation. While this keeps us focused on the most important work most of the time, the artificial limit is often cause for internal turmoil between competing business units due to the zero sum game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course, manage our costs and increase our value proposition. Continue to focus on the most strategic work while creating opportunities for for-profit organizations.
