Pros

MITRE works in the public interest; as a not-for-profit, its focus is on that mission, not on making money. Integrity is a core value and is demonstrated by "speaking truth to power" and walking away from jobs that aren't in the public interest. Focusing on the next innovation is encouraged; since you're surrounded by smart, well-educated, and dedicated professionals, you can continuously learn and grow. The retirement and PTOB are among the best in the industry and work/life balance is real.

Cons

As an operator of FFRDCs, MITRE only works for the government - primarily the federal government. The inevitable bureaucracy, uneven and unsure funding, and political changes can be frustrating.

Advice to Management

Keep talking and listening to the staff!

    I worked at MITRE as an intern

    Pros

    Good amount of autonomy - if you think your solution will work you are encouraged to implement it with minimal hand-holding.

    Expectations can be pretty high - leading to a lot of initial learning.

    Cons

    Intern experience depends heavily on the project to which you get assigned. I had a friend who's project was below his capabilities and spent 10 weeks not learning anything.

    Benefits, Salary, Work Satisfaction, Location

    Cons

    Re-organization doesn't make sense and adds complexity and overhead.

    Advice to Management

    Adding complexity while reducing management opportunities may not be the best strategy.
