Heavy on Staff Augmentation, Light on Innovation
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 sitting in on a budget meeting.

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.

No room for advancement or to learn anything new
Project Accounting Associate (Former Employee), McLean, VAJune 17, 2013
Pros: learning about project management
Cons: being the last to know about things affecting my job, and there was no way to advance in this position no matter how well you did your job.
I did a production process biweekly, activate projects, set up new departments and section IDs. Transfer funds from one project to another. Maintained a log of all cost transfers processed or sent to accounts payable. Answer e-mails requesting changes in project status, bill fee overrides, adding new fee overrides and closing projects.

I learned a lot about projects and how to fix issues that came up. It was a laid back environment where every one knew what they needed to do to everyday without much supervision.

The hardest part was making sure everyone who sent in a cost transfer memo had everything it needed so it could be transferred but that rarely happened. The best part of the job was acquiring the knowledge I needed to perform the duties that were required for this position, however it changed constantly.

Senior Network and Distributed Systems Engineer (Former Employee), McLean, VAJune 14, 2013
Mitre is a place where you work with smart people on challenging projects. The only downside is sometimes government work can be mundane, but the vast majority of work is building solutions to very difficult problems related to defense. The benefits are fantastic and it has great job security.

Used to be a good place to work, but not any longer.
Lead member (Former Employee), McLean, VAJune 14, 2013
Pros: good retirement benefits
Cons: management, lack of promotions, no training or conference money, only 8 federal holidays
Company is constantly chipping away at the benefits package in order to reduce corporate costs. Pay raises have been very small over the past 5 years in order to manage costs. Management is not trustworthy. Nepotism was commonplace in the Division I supported--upper management hires neighbors, friends, and relatives.
