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.

Pros
Great Employee Benefits! Nice Offices!

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

Great Company
Senior Cyber Information Security Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXMay 10, 2018
MITRE is a Not-for-Profit, Federally Funded Research and Development Company that allows for growth and leadership, and pays a competitive salary. MITRE affords members enterprise knowledge into academia, military, and industry. There is a brotherhood at MITRE that literally reaches across all MITRE sites world-wide

Mission Focused
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

Excellent work-life balance & job security
Pros
Working in the public interest; work-life balance; job security
Cons
Promotions impossible; salary structure too inflexible

Collaborative, Flexible, and Relaxed Environment
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.

Great place to work if you are an engineer
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.

A an overall good place to work for
INFRASTRUCTURE AUTOMATION ENGINEER (Current Employee) –  Bedford, MAApril 6, 2018
Very slow-paced environment, people tend to resist changes but otherwise a good company to work for.

Upper management tend to really care about the well-being of employees. Layoff are last resorts events. Middle managers are not always in sync with upper management.

Meaningful work
Corporate Operations (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAApril 4, 2018
Not a perfect place, but truly trying to help our government sponsors with their most critical problems. A lot of flexibility if you are a professional that works hard and delivers. Sometimes too much collaboration or most recently, a total opposite approach of "just do it". But for those that want interesting work that makes a difference not the pressure or ups and downs of for-profit consulting, it would be a good fit.
Pros
Interesting, impactful work; great work-life balance for most
Cons
Can more too slow or too quick; promotions sometimes take a long time

Not a bad company
Contracts Lead (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAFebruary 18, 2018
I am still currently employed with MITRE; however, I am always looking for other opportunities, and advancement. The only issues I have with MITRE are that pay increases are very low and as a non profit organization, it does not offer bonuses.
Pros
Good work life balance.
Cons
Low pay increases

Not a bad summer
Drone Designer - Mechatronic Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Charlottesville, VAFebruary 5, 2018
If you are being recruited for an internship at MITRE, beware that the culture and environment of the external sites are very different from the headquarters. There are very few people around, and obviously none of the fancy amenities of HQ. That said, the internship is challenging in a good way. You are placed on projects with other interns and given real responsibility.
Pros
Good pay, mentor, challenging projects
Cons
Small office

Excellent environment for self starters
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Bedford, MAJanuary 20, 2018
One of the few places, that I've worked, that you can control or have a major impact on your future by adding program value. It is not uncommon for staff members to cross train on various technical areas to ensure customer and individual demands are addressed as the program or your career develops respectively.
Pros
benefits
Cons
Life balance can and often does become disrupted as you climb the corporate ladder.

Facility Security Officer (FSO) (Former Employee) –  El Segundo, CAJanuary 17, 2018
Left management--not the company. I have nothing else to say. Management allows bad managers to supervise good employees. Set good employees up and never promote the hard working. Good old boys club
Pros
Good mentors
Cons
don't listen to employees. allows management to beat up employees and never reprimand management
