I have been working at MITRE full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent benefits (up to 5 weeks of paid time off per year, top-notch retirement program), great work/life balance, access to state-of-the-art technologies. Very low attrition and layoffs are a very rare occurrence.

Cons

Although most of the company has an excellent technical environment, it's not the same everywhere. Your experience within the company can vary significantly depending on the division you join.

Work at this not-for-profit company is funded exclusively by the US Government. As a result, there are restrictions on how the funds are spent. If you are looking for free lunch every day and beer on Fridays, this is not the place for you.

Advice to Management

Continue to offer good benefits and technical work: it's what keeps most of us here. Continue to engage with employees and seek feedback according to their experience.

    Pros

    MITRE works with many government facets from the military to court system to the health industry. The highest priority is to support the customer. Work/life balance is emphasized.

    Cons

    The promotion path is not always clear and can be very subjective. Working in a tech center makes it even more so.

    Pros

    Great work life integration, retirement benefits outstanding and educational assistance excellent. Good learning environment depending on where you are in company.

    Cons

    Promotions are few and far between, managers don't promote based on merit instead credentials and or favorites and salary increases are less than the cost of living and are distributed as bonuses!

    Advice to Management

    Give equal share of promotions to indirect staff as direct staff, determine fair job categories based on expertise not salary ; discourage managers from playing favorites and focus on development of staff. If managers aren't good managers, get rid of them!
