I worked at MITRE

Pros

Compensation is great and they are very flexible. They did a great job with promoting education to all of their employees and the management chain is very friendly.

Cons

Promotion procedure and salary review procedure need a major over haul! You can not move up in the company without taking the management route

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change your promotion procedures. Too much emphasis is placed on document writers and the technical people get left behind

    I have been working at MITRE

    Pros

    Good work environment. Super people to work with. I've found working level folks to be very cooperative and eager to share their knowledge and experience. In some groups you are able to state the obvious that might not be what the customer wants to hear.

    Cons

    Upper management is more than a little sanctimonious about how good MITRE is and how we work in the public interest then turn around and become absolutely obsequious. They spend too much time coming up with names like "idea leaders" and to little time telling the truth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should get things to work and stop trying to make things too cute. They facilitate the customer to avoid solving problems and simply make work.
