    Pros

    Excellent culture, excellent people, good work at a good salary with people who care about each other

    Cons

    Harvard education that focused on metrics for things that can not be measured. Taking way to long to fire people that needed to be fired years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Former Employee - Information Systems Engineer in McLean, VA

    I worked at MITRE full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Retirement plan is great even with the recent changes. The rest of the benefits are just average. There are a lot of smart people working at MITRE.

    Cons

    No advancement potential for technical staff. No respect for technical staff if they have no desire to be management. If there is an issue between a manager and the technical staff, the manager is always right and there is no recourse for the technical staff. There is no upward review so if a manager dislikes you, they can affect your career without you being able to defend yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very myopic. While you pat yourselves on the back you don't see what the rank-and-file are saying. You need to stop shoveling and start to listen. You've lost a lot of good people over the last five years because of poor decisions and not respecting your technical staff. You better figure out how to stop that hemorrhaging before you lose more of your best people.
