"Summer intern experience"

I have been working at MITRE as an intern

Pros

Good work environment, everyone around me was helpful and contributed to my experience at the company. I learned a lot and am glad to have worked here.

Cons

Described as a "retirement home", the population is older and work often moves quite slowly as a result. It is probably not the best place for someone just beginning their career.

    I have been working at MITRE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work in the public interest, generally good management and co-workers, flexible schedules, good benefits. With the Metro coming, the location is even better!

    Cons

    I can't think of any that I wouldn't find everywhere else. It seems that promotions are not easy to come by, I believe they could have a better performance evaluation system in place.

    Advice to Management

    Get out amongst the people more (pop your head in somebody's office and find out what they're working on).
