    Pros

    Some very bright people work at Mitre . Most are quite cordial and share their knowledge.
    The benefits are good , retirement being one of the better deals . Next is work / life balance ,, Also a con
    as I'll explain next.

    Cons

    I'll first address work life balance . While it is great to have flexibility with arrival and departure times , Mitre
    has taken this to an entirely unheard of level . It is not uncommon to see employees arrive between 1000 to 1100 hrs.
    I must admit these people most likely put in their time but how can you run a business this way ? Many people don't
    show at all .. Again, are they doing work ? You bet ,but how efficiently is the company running ? This leads to
    much employee strife . For instance , this person barely even comes to work or that person is in with management .

    The review system, P&D is not working as it was suppose to . It has been hinted that a new review method will be put
    in its place . This would be a very welcome change for employees and management .

    Management. See below.

    Advice to Management

    I've noticed that most mid to high level managers have never managed anywhere other than Mitre .

    This inherently causes the types of problems that Mitre faces . The tactics / methodologies to solve problems
    is almost always the same , put out a survey , gather your group once or twice and all should be right with the world .
    Try incorporating some practices of for profit companies

    You need to act !! Managers are busy on their own projects but at this time in the companies history you need to
    be out and about , amongst your people on a daily basis .

    Lastly stop talking / surveying . You have all the info. you need right here on Glassdoor !!
