Use your skills and passion to build a career that makes you proud.
At MITRE, our reputation relies on providing technically sound, objective guidance to our government partners. It's not about increasing the bottom line. It's about helping our nation move forward. And it's been that way for more than 50 years.
Through our FFRDCs, we've advanced the state of the art in such critical areas as GPS, air traffic control, mobile technologies, cybersecurity, and healthcare IT—to name just a few. We're proud of this record of teamwork and accomplishment.
MITRE isn't just a place that creates value for our nation. We know you want to work at a place where you're valued, too. That's why we provide:
MITRE's Definition of Inclusion
Inclusion is the practice of engaging the unique talents, beliefs, experiences, capabilities, and culture of individuals and groups in support of a common mission. Inclusive behavior acknowledges and respects differences.
At MITRE, we believe that fostering the collective strength of a wide spectrum of employees results in innovative solutions for our customers. For that reason, MITRE strives to create a culture that respects and leverages individual and cultural differences.
MITRE's Business Case for Diversity
A fully diverse and inclusive organization provides MITRE with a competitive advantage:
Workforce differences that we celebrate include, but are not limited to:
MITRE's Corporate Diversity Action Council (CDAC)
The goal of our CDAC is to embed MITRE's commitment to diversity and inclusion into our work programs. CDAC works through three committees to achieve its goals.
The Workforce Committee supports MITRE's goal to recruit and retain a workforce that reflects the diversity of our customers and the nation. The Operations Committee is focused on enhancing and improving MITRE work programs, products, and operations through the inclusion of diversity of staff and thought. The Education and Awareness Committee supports MITRE's longstanding commitment to creating and maintaining a multicultural workplace where talented individuals can flourish.
I have been working at MITRE full-time
The work is meaningful. Significant potential to make a positive impact at the higher levels of government. Great facilities. Management is starting to focus more on employee experience. Fantastic benefits, especially retirement (although you have to stay with the company over a year to receive much benefit). Great educational benefits. Wondering if some of the other negative reviews here on Glassdoor are from other companies that don't want MITRE to succeed in attracting great people to join the company. Really, Mitre is a good place to work.
It takes significant effort to get plugged in with co-workers and projects. Expectations for success for individual employees and projects are not usually clear. I was expecting more flexibility in my schedule and commute (now at customer site nearly 100%) of the time. Seems like it takes a very long time to move up in the company or receive a promotion.
Advice to Management
Consider offering more telework options! Telework 2 or 3 days a week would be extremely beneficial to employee experience. Keep presenting the compelling story of how MITRE is making a difference.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at MITRE (Tysons, VA) in November 2015.
I networked into an interview through a professional organization. I received a phone interview, in which the interviewer wanted to know where else I was interviewing and what salaries were on offer. I received an invitation to my in-person panel interview the following day. I received an offer within three days after my in-person interview.
