I worked at MITRE full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

If you're willing to adapt, learn, and be proactive, there's no limit to how far you can go at MITRE. The benefits are great, although salaries are maybe a little lower than industry average. If you're good at what you do, MITRE will provide you with a stable job until you retire. And if you don't like what you're doing, there are plenty of opportunities to make lateral moves within the company.

Cons

With all the stability, things can feel stagnant sometimes. Some employees (but far from all of them) have a "government job" mindset: they clock their hours and go home, and work at an average pace while they're there. Others are passionate, dedicated and hardworking. It depends on what department you end up in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shake things up a little. Get the corporate culture more used to things like working form home, truly flexible hours, etc. Recruit some fresh and younger people, and see where that takes you.

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

    Pros

    Strong sense of purpose permeates the culture. Employees have open and frank conversations about helping the US gov't with its challenges.

    Cons

    If you're outside of the Bedford Mass or McLean area, you won't benefit as greatly from the perks.
