Pros

The company provides a good balance of work and family, freedom to telecommute, good retirement plan, and good work place ethics.

Cons

It is very difficult to obtain projects and experience outside your immediate area of expertise. The work sometimes involves too much powerpoint-jockeying and there is too little involvement with real engineering research & development.

Advice to Management

There is too little opportunity to work with real engineering research and development. The concentration on powerpoint slides does not give enough of a sense of accomplishment.

    Pros

    MITRE really takes care of its employees. There are many interesting work opportunities and employees generally gravitate towards the type of work they enjoy. Their internal R&D program provides innovators an opportunities to turn ideas into solutions to hard problems. They provide a generous match in their 403(b) retirement program.

    Cons

    Salary-wise, they probably pay a bit less than one would get at a for-profit company, but this in my opinion is a wash when considering benefits and job quality.

    Advice to Management

    If it isn't broke, don't fix it. Keep your focus on what has made MITRE a strong, innovative company. Resist the pressure to grow too fast. Emphasize quality over quantity of work force.
