What Employees Say
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."
I worked at Empa
The kids make the job amazing, watching the impact you have on each individual is very rewarding.
The director was unorganized and the company had a temporary office.
Advice to Management
At the time, the company was still growing. I'm sure they have made the necessary changes to be a well oiled machine.
