    I worked at MITRE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you want to work with some of the best technical minds out there, MITRE is the place. If you want to further your education by obtaining a PhD, work a broad swath of technologies, and keep extending the bleeding edge, MITRE is the place.

    Cons

    The only downside is that MITRE's main customer, the US Government, can move at a glacial pace at times. Sometimes it can take years from conception to design to deployment. Some geographic areas in which your projects may be tested or deployed can be a bit less than "idyllic".

    Advice to Management

    Without the ability to pay performance bonuses (due to FFRDC funding laws), keep looking for new ways to incent technical staff.

    I have been working at MITRE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance. Interesting problems are looked at, in particular in the aviation side of the house. Very smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Middle management could use some refining (less micromanagemnet). There is not a clear path for persons who want to stay out of management. In order to get promoted levels you basically need to go into managemnet.
