What is the retirement plan like at MIT Lincoln Laboratory?

Pros

Others' willingness to share their expertise with you is exceptional. Knowledge and talent base excellent. Pension and ROTH option 401k with a big match. Hard work is rewarded with promotions every couple of years.

Cons

Supersaturated with academics; groups are often very top heavy. Academic achievement is the primary limitation for advancement into salaried positions (hard work can only get you so far). Perfect for flying under the radar as a union worker for the long haul. Old white dude vibe.

Advice to Management

Figure out who is doing what and go from there.

What kind of career opportunities exist at MIT Lincoln Laboratory?

Pros

MITLL has two Leadership development programs to help develop a skill set in Contracts or Finance, Great for any entry level college graduate

Cons

Utilize them more rather than allowing them to be "in" on the conversations in the room allow them to contribute. Consider college graduates as opposed to the workforce who has prior work experience. Throwing around the word intern as opposed to full time worker doesn't allow them feel apart of the MITLL community rather seen as a child in the work place

Advice to Management

Uplift and encourage, give incentive to stay, programs should be 1-2 years as opposed to 3+
