Pros

Compensation is great and they are very flexible. They did a great job with promoting education to all of their employees and the management chain is very friendly.

Cons

Promotion procedure and salary review procedure need a major over haul! You can not move up in the company without taking the management route

Advice to Management

Change your promotion procedures. Too much emphasis is placed on document writers and the technical people get left behind

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If your not looking for advancement in your career and like giving Powerpoint presentations rather than building real systems this is the place for you. If you have retired from a real career and want a place to relax and offer suggestions to the government for how they should perform their job duties then this is the place for you. If you don't want to work hard and don't care about enhancing your career then you have come to the right place.

    Cons

    If your young and want to enhance your career this is not the place to work. MITRE is for the elderly who are just looking to coast through life.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your technical people or they will leave.
