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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Convenient work location
    Flexible work schedule - just need to record 80 hours per pay period
    Pretty good retirement benefits - the company's matching contribution fairly high
    Mostly decent co-workers

    Cons

    Limited career growth
    Limited job opportunities
    Company says it's different but really just another SETA contractor
    Department managers are out of touch with the workers and have an entitled attitude
    Work environment is terrible

    Advice to Management

    Wake-up. The Mitre Way is just a way to create more high level meeting goer jobs
