Fun and productive workplace
IT Infrastructure Intern (Former Employee) –  Bedford, MAAugust 15, 2018

Pros
Flexible schedules, full-time employees get to work from home 1 day a week, subsidized food

Customer Service Representative (CSR) (Current Employee) –  New Carrollton, MDAugust 8, 2018
position varies for the benefit of thieves and the managers who cover it up. Managers change their minds and stance to fit their friendships and family. I learned to adhere to my morals, written policies and my years of customer service to continue with my positive motivated work ethic.

Pays lip service to caring about employees
Technical (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAJuly 27, 2018
MITRE will do the minimum to help employees. Much depends on who your direct supervisor is. Some good managers, but if you get a bad one, look out. No one will intervene on your behalf. Supervisors are given very little structure/guidance regarding how they manage. MITRE has some programs/benefits in place for employees, but also many restrictions around them that make it difficult to use the programs/benefits.

Not a good place unless you're an engineer
Office Support Staff IV (Current Employee) –  Bedford, MAJuly 24, 2018
They are so busy hiring engineers that they have forgotten about the folks that have been here for years and have given their heart and soul to this company.

If you are not an engineer, you basically do not count. There is no growth in this company.
Pros
No growth, no respect unless you're an engineer

Several issues
Subcontracts Administrator Contractor (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAJuly 7, 2018
While the pay was good, issues with management not responding to requests or issues. Job advancement had problems where favoritism was involved. Job culture was bad, either people kept to themselves or was very cliquish

Can be a good place to work when you have a good supervisor
Administrative Assistant/Lead Secretary (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAJune 21, 2018
Typing a lot of RFP's, reports, and contracts for clients. Had to many engineers to support in a division. You work for time you go in the office to time you left. Sometime non-stop. Like the health care package they had. We did you picnic once a year for moral purposes and to get to know people on a more personal bases.
Pros
Health benefits
Cons
Overworked

Get your Money at the Door
Telecommunications Technician (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAJune 1, 2018
Probably a great place to work if you already have a college degree. The degree doesn't even have to apply in any way to the position you hold. The degree is solely to allow for advancement to another position. If you have no degree, be sure to get a salary you will be happy with for the time you plan to stay with the company. Laddering system is confusing even to management. Some have been told that obtaining a promotion is strictly a "popularity contest" and has nothing to do with your ability to execute the job requirements. The words, "it's not what you know, but who you know" definitely apply here!
Pros
Outstanding facility
Cons
Lack of advancement potential.

Working on projects that you have no interest or background in.

Organizational Change (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAMay 8, 2018
MITRE is a great place to work if you are passionate about making a difference in national safety. MITRE managers provide employees with autonomy and opportunities to add value to the work that you do. MITRE also values work-life balance and is a caring organization. The pay is not as high as other high-tech companies, but its not for profit status provides employees with ability to focus on doing what's right for the sponsors vs. making money for the company.
Pros
Excellent mission; good work-life balance
Cons
Limited career development, especially for technical staff

SENIOR CONSULTANT (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAApril 19, 2018
MITRE is a wonderful place to work, with fairly supportive management. MITRE has wonderful benefits and flexible working arrangements. The only downside is that MITRE moves at a snails pace when it comes to promotions. This continues to come up in employee surveys, but nothing is really done to improve this area. Departments continue to bring in new talent, but do not do a good job promoting staff accordingly. MITRE is filled with awesome talent, which makes it extremely competitive.

Domain Principal / Subject Matter Expert (Current Employee) –  Windsor Mill, MDApril 7, 2018
MITRE is very project oriented. You must continue to find projects within the organization and remain 100% allocated.
Projects sometimes tough to come by.
