Current Employee - Senior Multi-Discipline Systems Engineer in McLean, VA

I have been working at MITRE full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great work life balance, collegial environment, ability to pick own projects, 40 hr/wk expectation, great colleagues who are friendly and happy to help pass on their knowledge - the continuous learning opportunities are to notch, good pay.

Cons

Advancement along the technical track is extremely difficult. It's a great place to get started in your career or for those who are established and want somewhere interesting and stable to work a reasonable amount of hours. Not a great place for a mid career person who is ambitious.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of this old fashioned "raise" mentality, if a relatively new employee is better than someone who has been at their "salary level" for years, they should be paid more and have more opportunities for advancement. Seniority seems to override merit.

    Former Employee - Principal Software Development Engineer
    Former Employee - Principal Software Development Engineer

    I worked at MITRE full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance, benefits were comparable to other companies, cafeteria

    Cons

    Bloated upper layer of management, lots of yes men (and I do mean men, this place does't like to hire women), diversity a four letter word here, individuals who can throw around buzz words and make good power points are superstars here, anyone with a hard science/engineering degree and technical talent treated like disposable staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what successful companies are doing and try to mimic. Otherwise you will just die of old age.
