    I have been working at MITRE full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    MITRE works on interesting and challenging problems for our government sponsors. Great work/life balance - little to no overtime is expected. MITRE management cares about and invests in employees' careers and development. The culture is devoted to providing good R&D to help out the US government and taxpayers. Excellent benefits for the industry: pay, retirement matching, healthcare, facilities, and time off.

    Cons

    As a government FFRDC there are lots of bureaucratic policies, mostly imposed contractually by the government. Additionally as a hierarchical matrix organization, employees often have to deal with "lots of bosses."
