Approves of CEO

Pros

Very bright colleagues, dedication to mission rather than personal or corporate profit, work life balance, important problems with opportunity to help solve them.

Cons

Too self-satisfied, too many people have inflated view of our stature and reputation in 2011 vs. 1985, resistance to real change at middle level of management.

Advice to Management

Assume nothing from first 50 years holds automatically for next 10 (or in many case, more accurately, persuade your direct reports of the opportunities and challenges facing MITRE and our sponsors that are significantly different).

    Current Employee - Infosec Engineer
    Current Employee - Infosec Engineer
    Recommends
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits, salary are more than competitive. Work life balance is a mantra, and meant.

    Cons

    Current team management has bad business model. Knows it, but can't change. Few and far between training opportunities due to bad model.

    Advice to Management

    Make teams get expertise internally before new hires.
