A mission centered company
Principle Information Systems Engineer (Current Employee), McLean, VAMarch 13, 2014
Pros: very skilled and experienced staff, work life balance is highly promoted and expected.
Cons: lots of mobile workers so face to face collaboration can be difficult at times.
MITRE is very focused on serving the needs of various agencies across the federal government.

You have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in a single agency or across multiple agencies.

I have been able to work on the defense side and various civilian agencies in a strategic capacity helping to move the government forward.

My coworkers – more... are very helpful and everyone will provide their expertise and experience on a subject if you ask. – less

GREAT Job Security + Flexibility
Lead Simulation Modeling Engineer (Current Employee), Bedford, MAMarch 1, 2014
Pros: flexible, work life balance, challenging work
Cons: no true technical promotion track
Great place to work overall. Challenging problems, good culture in regards to treating employees as valued people, and good work-life balance. Extremely amenable to alternate schedules/teleworking.

NOT a start-up culture though, don't expect to find many office parties, happy hours, or catered lunches.

Good Worklife Balance - But that is all they got
Principle (Current Employee), McLean, VAFebruary 4, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: you will lose your skils and become outdated in 2 years.
Management - pretty bad
Organization Learning and capability growth - Bad
Compensation - Below Market
Growth: Only for brown nosers
Leadership: Clueless
Culture: People go there to retire

I think that sums it up.

Group Lead (Current Employee), McLean, VAJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: retirement matching
Cons: extremely slow promotions, lackluster management
Although MITRE claims to fulfill a role separate from that of the for-profit consultancies, it has lost that mission and the specialized culture with it. Whether you're a systems engineer, scientist, or business analyst, a day at MITRE is about the same -- authoring PowerPoint presentations for government clients, setting up meetings, and occasionally – more... sitting in on a budget meeting. – less

Mid-Level Virtual World Design Engineer (Former Employee), Mclean, VirginiaJanuary 8, 2014
MITRE was my first "real world" job opportunity. I enjoy being at the company for almost 3 years before I moved on to pursue more Serious Games Projects. I truly enjoyed Management and the massive amount of extremely intelligent individuals who worked at and I worked with at MITRE.

Engineer (Former Employee), Bedford, MANovember 13, 2013
Many very talented people. Pay is not great, but OK. They pay attention to work/life balance. Government funding is a cause for uncertainty with respect to job security. Not much room for advancement, management can be very clickish.

SENIOR SYSTEMS ENGINEER (Current Employee), Washington, DCNovember 12, 2013
Pros: good cafeteria
Cons: pompous management
Once a powerhouse, now a mere shell. They tout how their work is somehow at a higher level than other contractors, but in reality they are just another company bowing and scraping for the few government scraps.

Forget advancement unless you meet the politically correct template and you have the right friends.

MITRE is as good as it gets, only lacks in compensation. Great benefits. Collaboration across the company. Innovative and leaders in the industry. Allowed to build your own career based on your interests.
