    Former Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in McLean, VA (US)

    I worked at MITRE full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can take work home as an option

    Cons

    Takes ten years or more to get promoted to next grade up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce AC6 and AC7 positions and promote more AC3s and AC4s to AC5s. AC6s dont contribute, just add more management oversight.

    I have been working at MITRE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work with some great, motivated, intellectually honest scientists and engineers.

    Cons

    Difficult to move within the company. Top heavy management. Focus on revenue generation over quality in too many groups, becoming part of culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on retention as opposed to bringing in and paying more to new talent. Focus on the core value of public benefit vs. the path towards becoming a body shop.
