I have been working at MITRE

Pros

Ability to work in the public interest on critical national security issues with full support of management to "do the right thing." At MITRE the only interest is the public interest.

Cons

As a not for profit organization, while your are paid a competitive salary, there are no stock options or bonuses as can be seen in some other high tech companies (eg. Google...)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More town hall style interactions with employees, enabling management to discuss it vision and direction, coupled with Q&A with the staff.

    Pros

    Diverse opportunities for interesting project work.

    Cons

    slow progression. FFRDC restrictions on type of work that you can perform. Very conservative in approach and work force demographic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I think MITRE is a great place to work. I think its critical to maintain a corporate focus on sharing information across the sponsor base as a great asset of the company.

    Pros

    I beleive that MITRE values my input and cares about my contributions.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of growth opportunities for minorities and women. But the company has taken a hard look at these practices and is improving significantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time talking with our customers at the highest level possible. Our technical managers have great relationships with our customers and upper managemnt should build upon that relationship.
