Pros

Talented individuals, open-minded, free-thinking, and cooperative. About 20% of the people have PhDs and more than 60% have a Masters.

Cons

Bureacracy which is not a surprise at any medium to large sized company. Federal work can be challenging, working with the latest and greatest technologies, but it can also be limiting in that your work mainly in areas of defense and a few civilian federal agencies. A broader involvement in other industries would be nice but not possible.

Advice to Management

Coordinate better in a matrix type environment. Focus more on management who have the ability to handle personnel issues. Technical leaders may need to be just that technical leaders but not necessarily managers because they were successful leading a technical effort. There are managers who should not be managing people - people are the greatest resource and strength of an organization such as MITRE.

    Pros

    Good work. Good people. Good sponsors.

    Cons

    Long promotion timeframes and small salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the systems engineering (BS, MS) mentality in terms of people. Only choose middle managers based upon "business" and "people" skills. Technical expertise is a distant third in priority.
