Current Employee - Multi Discipline Systems Engineer in McLean, VA
Recommends
Approves of CEO

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.

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bedford, MA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bedford, MA
    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    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.

    It Could be Worse

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Administrative Support in Bedford, MA
    Current Employee - Administrative Support in Bedford, MA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Retirement matching contributions Fewer layoffs than private sector Most staff are very professional and cordial People stay for years Company promotes individual well being

    Cons

    No career path for administrative staff. Pay is just enough to keep people from leaving. Recognition is spotty and inconsistent. Pay raises not tied to performance. Working conditions vary greatly by manager and department.

    Advice to Management

    Of all of the companies I have worked for, MITRE places the least value on the administrative staff. One might think we are invisible to senior management. Fortunately, most of my peers have resilient, service-oriented attitudes, but you can see how some people who have been here a long time are worn down. Most of the managers are great. Please take action with abusive managers, some of whom have been left in place for years.
