I have been working at MITRE full-time (more than an year)

Pros

MITRE has good benefits, good people, interesting work, and a good environment. They are very good about work and life balance.

Cons

There are not too many downsides about working at MITRE. The biggest is probably that projects, especially in today's economy, can sometimes go away unexpectedly. There are also times (but not always) where there seem to be too many managers on projects per non-manager.

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

    Pros

    Good work can be had. Independent, in-depth, technical with a fusion of other factors. MITRE people can beome very trusted by their sponsors. Good technology support of workers.

    Cons

    Hands down the biggest con is the management. Management seems to be picked from a small subset of bright-smile people - who haven't demonstrated management skills elsewhere. Currently, this is part of the "generation balance" initiative: Just pick someone from the right age (e.g. 30s, 40s) as the current, new leader (for when the old farts retire). Who cares if they don't have any leadership experience or skills. Hey, maybe a training class will fix it - yeah, right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new "MITRE Way" is a return to the former discredited matrix management style. A massive breakdown in sponsor/project leader communications - breaking down task leader, worker, government communications on what is suposed to be worked.

    Got to interview with a great team of knowledgeable staff, including hiring manager and his manager as well.

    Cons

    Not a fast-moving company, compared to the hiring process I'm used to from small business
