    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Best things are the benefits, the work-life balance, the ability to move around and find interesting and new challenges, and the quality of the technical staff.

    Cons

    Downsides include:
    - A perception that MITRE is the best and no other company knows as much (not reality)
    - The fact that MITRE organizationally reflects many of the bad characteristics (stovepiping) of the sponsors we support
    - The unwillingness of management to terminate poor performers and reward top performers (lots of dead weight)
    - The fact that people stay forever so there advancement opportunities can come slowly

    Advice to Management

    MITRE needs to operate a little more like a private company and little less like a government agency. There should be more focus on performance, as it seems like the top people (who are truly the best in their fields) often have to carry a lot of dead weight to succeed. Eliminating some of the leff impactful folks wouldn't impact the work product, but would allow MITRE to more appopriately reward those who are doing the heavy lifting. A commitment to work-life balance to often seems to mean the stars work and the average folks balance.
