Featured Review

Current Employee - Group Leader

I have been working at MITRE full-time for more than 5 years


MITRE works on interesting and challenging problems for our government sponsors. Great work/life balance - little to no overtime is expected. MITRE management cares about and invests in employees'... careers and development. The culture is devoted to providing good R&D to help out the US government and taxpayers. Excellent benefits for the industry: pay, retirement matching, healthcare, facilities, and time off.


As a government FFRDC there are lots of bureaucratic policies, mostly imposed contractually by the government. Additionally as a hierarchical matrix organization, employees often have to deal with... "lots of bosses."

Current Employee - Senior Firmware Engineer

I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time for more than 5 years


Flex time to let me work when I want to. A 9/80 (or alternative) work schedule to provide 3 day weekends every other week. Good benefits. Great coworkers. Great furniture. Good hierarchy manager and... lead structure to allow for help from multiple directions. Everyone is for the warfighter and not for BAE, which focuses us on the customer, not management. 1


Over the last 4 years BAE has slowly rolled back some great benefits. Weekly to Bi-weekly pay periods and stating there's no cost difference (what about payroll??). First 10 hours over 80 hours are... free - we get no pay (4 years ago we did! ). They've removed the best Traditional health insurance program. If you are really good at your job, a golden goose, you'll constantly get pulled back to the same program which could be great, but if you don't like that program then that will push you out of BAE.

Advice to Management

Ensure your employees are happy where they are, and if they aren't then move them to somewhere they want to go, don't keep giving them raises or promotions to make them stay.
