    Best growth opportunities

    Jan 12, 2022 - Project Manager in Colorado Springs, CO
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Mitre provides lots of opportunities for growth in technical tracks and leadership tracks. Because Notre is an FFRDC, there is always more challenging work than resources which creates a demand for motivated people. Mitre offers many ways to continue growing allowing individuals to follow the path of paths they find most interesting. Great retirement plan. Many people that spend their careers with Mitre retire early.

    Cons

    Pay scale may be less than comparable work at "for profit" corporations.

    Good company, working on improvements

    Aug 5, 2022 - Lead Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    People are committed to the mission and performing the best FFRDC work. Lots of new faces which helps bring new experience and perspectives, both early career and experienced.

    Cons

    Pay disparity widely within company within same position and similar experience level. Not as much loyalty to long term employees as in the past. Where you are located within the company determines opportunities and pay. You have to jump around to catch up.

    Love the work and the people, not a big fan of the rigidity

    Aug 4, 2022 - Computational Linguist in Boston, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I really liked all the people I worked with at Mitre. I worked on a few different projects, and they were interesting

    Cons

    The time tracking system is super rigid. You have to account for every half hour of your day. This did not bother me because I was Part Time on Call, so I was paid hourly and would be tracking my time anyway. But I think if I was working there full time it would get old quick.

    Interesting Work, Stable Environment

    Jul 23, 2022 - Principal Cloud Engineer in McLean, VA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects, really smart , capable coworkers, decent retirement plans for mid-career employees, lots of opportunities to learn new skills.

    Cons

    While base pay is reasonable, there is no possibility of large bonuses or equity, stock options or anything like that. It is a non-profit organization. Its assets are owned by the government. Your base pay is it. Your benefits are "meh" for a tech company. Your raises will generally be very small once you have reached a mid-level (typically 1-3%). If you get promoted, you will likely get a small, out of cycle, raise (e.g., 3-4%). If you are looking to get ahead quickly or make a lot of money, look elsewhere, like a start-up or small but growing tech company.
