Advice to Management
Keep MITRE as MITRE - don't ever move towards being a rank and file government contractor - continue to invest in your employees
The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MITRE (New York, NY).
Went to college recruiting event. I was interviewed by several departments. Each interview was done by two people: the department head and another employee. The whole event was a day long.
