Pros

Commitment to training and education
Many different opportunities
Work life balance is the best
Comprehensive benefits

Cons

Promotion is very difficult even if you have done a great job and there is little feedback as to why someone got promoted over someone else, and the fact you have to wait a year in between promotion cycles is very long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Proactively find your best employees and mentor then so that they do not find incentives to leave.

    Pros

    MITRE has flexible work schedule that allows a good work-life balance. However, there are times when client and project requirements demand more than the normal 40 hours. There is a culture of high quality in all the work we produce for the client.

    Cons

    The client is the Federal government and often I see exciting projects outside of the Federal space that I would like to be involved in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In some parts of employee evaluation, process is more important than outcome. Management needs to evaluate whether the process is stifling effective relationship with employees.
