Pros

Interesting and very important work

Cons

Byzantine culture for new hires, but once you break the code very enabling. Introverted technies and engineers often get frustrated because they have to work collaboratively to differentiate themselves.

Advice to Management

Collaboration and consensus-building works at a team level, but breaks down at a corporate level. Sr. Leaders often deflect accountability by shifting the hard decisions to a committee.

    Pros

    The work is important, challenging environment, peers are top notch. The work makes you want to come to work and solve important problems.

    Cons

    All companies have negatives. MITRE tries to do an admirable job of balancing innovation and a collaborative environment with the environment of their largest customers, but ultimately recommendations and results need to be accepted by senior DoD officials who many times are illl equipped ot trained to understand complex technical issues.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to manage the workforce to provide opportunities for the future leadership of the company. MITRE provides great educational and career advancement opportunities. These benefits help make MITRE a great place to work.

    Pros

    MITRE is very unique. It represents a blend of the best aspects of the private sector (dynamic, passion, competitive), academia (intellectual energy) and government (mission, complex problems and job security). Highly recommend it to all potential employment candidates.

    Cons

    Very few. Promotion rate is not high and given the great work force, they is a lot of competition. Pay is average for their locales and oddly, they deny their is pay premium for cleared individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Pretty simple: keep the bar high on the qualifications of MITRE staff (academic achievement, technical skillset and relevant experience) and everything else becomes much, much easier.
