An ok place to work

Senior Software Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Aberdeen, MD

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

ProsYou can manage to have a good work-life balance and the benefits pretty good. A quote a read a while back sums it up "great place to start and end your career."

ConsNo technical path for good engineers to grow. You must take on management to advance your career. There is no defined process of advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a more defined system for advancement and create a career path for engineers that does not require making them managers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Not a good place to work anymore, skating along on old reputation

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at MITRE full-time


Pros: Most on project teams were smart, engaged and were committed… Cons: What has happened to MITRE in the last 18 months is very troubling. Horrible department and division management across the board. … Advice to Senior Management: Consider biting the bullet and either training department management or division management on personnel management and the law or have most currently in that role… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
