Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – April 4, 2017
A very large company that afforded many opportunities including new and improved applications to make my work easier. I was able to travel to meet request by HR and the Army. Excellent Managers and staff.
Analog/Mixed-Signal Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – March 30, 2017
I really enjoyed my time at Mitre, I was involved in a diverse set of projects and worked alongside many talented engineers. Many of the managers have a wealth of experience in their fields, although there are a few singularities.
Quality Assurance/Training Lead (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – March 10, 2017
As an FFRDC, MITRE was subject to tight financial budget circumstances. The culture was outstanding, and most employees love working for the company. The benefits were competitive and even expensive for the corporation, but the financial compensation was not good. The paid-time-off (PTOB) was much lower than any place I've worked.
Office Administrative Specialist IV (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – March 6, 2017
Worked for three different supervisors. Update electronic time sheets for employees and submit for processing bi-weekly. I regularly update our department SharePoint site, as well as assisting other staff with SharePoint help. Work with other administrative assistants to keep track of internal and external training requests on a quarterly basis. I keep track of badge swipe data for our department and report discrepancies to the Business Operations team. Schedule and assist reserving conference rooms for monthly department meetings, weekly manager meetings and technical exchange meetings when requested. Keep track of staff resumes and inform those who have out-of-date resumes to update. I often assist other administrative assistance in Microsoft Office products when needed.
Environmental Health and Safety Technician (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – February 24, 2017
It was a great opportunity to learn and utilize what I obtained from earning my college degree. Unfortunately, I cannot divulge to much information about my last job because of my security clearance, my apologies.
Cyber Security Analyst (Current Employee) – Bedford, MA – January 17, 2017
The only issue is the commute and sometimes getting new project work is difficult until you get established. the company does not mentor or have an efficient way to build up your resume. those with experience do well but those with little experience is hard to grow or get onto good project work. Requires clearance to work as primary customer is US government.
work life balance, work from home, holiday parties
Lead, Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – December 29, 2016
A reorganization has changed the company into something that is no longer different from the status quo. The company culture that was like a family is no longer there. Rather than a culture of those who help one another it is a cut throat enterprise.
Work/life benefits, continuing education
The lack of "care and feeding" of employee's for growth
Senior Virtulization Engineer (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – December 11, 2016
Mitre is a great well managed company. This is not always a good thing when you are trying to advance. The people here love being here so they never leave making it harder to climb the ladder. I would say overall management knows how to keep up moral while meeting deadlines. I will miss this place, but I must be career oriented at this stage in my life.
SD Quality Assurance Mgr. & Training Specialist (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – December 11, 2016
Management is very interested in work-life balance. There are many opportunities for continuing education and it is encouraged. Many opportunities for socializing with different groups within the corporation. Employees are encouraged to give back and volunteerism is very much supported with paid time off to pursue volunteerism. Great place to work. Very diverse & inclusive.
Lead Reliability Engineer (Current Employee) – Aberdeen, MD – November 8, 2016
However, the culture is changing from a Senior Government Expert (SME) to that of a contractor house, less the $$$ benefit. Lapses in the end of the government fiscal year has everyone chasing their tail, looking for little contracts to work under... Musical chairs.
Great people and management
Highly dependent on government funding and associated hiccups.
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – September 30, 2016
If you are energetic, hard-working, career minded, this is not the place for you because there is almost no chance for career advancement. Typical promotions at low level take 6-7 years where they take 3 yrs in most places.
The company values newcomers more than their own proven and loyal employees, so negotiate when you join as you will not get a promotion after you do. This is so well known that there is huge grade inflation at the time of hire when compared to the tried and tested abilities of existing employees. Sad, but true.
Great Research Program, great work-life balance, good retirement benefits, flexible hours, telecommuting option
Lacking practical technical knowledge (lots of academic, theoretical knowledge), senior management who are here to take it easy, almost zero chance for promotion or advancement, too much politics
