    Pros

    Mostly good people at tech staff and middle management level.

    Cons

    Too many in upper management are oblivious to what it takes to get things done in the real world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You would do well to concentrate less on the buzzwords of the day and learn to lead. Too often efforts of the staff are reactive, due to lack of prioritization from those in charge.

    I have been working at MITRE full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to contribute to national security using decades of technical experience. If you can escape the inertia that your managers impose on you and focus on delivering what your sponsors need, you can thrive. The company IS trying to adapt to the ever-changing fractious government funding environment but much of this is beyond the corporation's control. The CEO, Al Grasso, is a technically-competent executive who is doing his best in a difficult environment.

    Cons

    Clubby management that believes being selected for management automatically invests you with wisdom and technical genius beyond that of non-managers. Fairly poor follow-through on corporate promotion standards. Many managers hold staff to performance standards beyond what they themselves are incapable of meeting. The annual performance appraisal process is terribly flawed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your offices and away from your endless management meetings, talk to your staff and learn what they are doing.
