Pros

MITRE is a great company, with many opportunites for growth. It is easy to work on projects that interest you. The management is very understanding in creating a good work-life balance.

Cons

It is a government job, so there are hoops to jump through related to security. It also offers slightly lower compensation, although that is accounted for with good benefits.

    Pros

    The way the government engages MITRE is strategic in nature and with a level of access and influence not afforded to those working in the commercial contracting space. MITRE allows you to apply engineering excellence through a unique type of relationship with the government: the Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC)

    Cons

    Turnover and growth are lower than at commercial companies meaning there may appear to be fewer opportunities for advancement. The corporate culture is one of inclusion and so some employees feel that decisions can take too much time and/or result in many rounds of discussions.

    Advice to Management

    MITRE management has to work hard to find a ablance between the needs of the sponsors and our commitment to FFRDC operational excellence, and new developments in human capital management. Management should look for ways to adapt our internal organization to meet the needs of the next generation of engineers while keeping the delivery of mission-critical solutions intact. A tough job, no doubt about it...
