    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 20 Jahren bei MITRE (Teilzeit)

    Pros

    MITRE's mission is exceptional, and most of the people I know at MITRE really believe in it. My colleagues in my local department are smart, dedicated and imaginative. The work in my organization is varied and mostly very interesting. The opportunities for part-time and flex schedules are exceptional, and the benefits remain pretty good, including the retirement plan. Work-life balance is also solid. I've stayed at MITRE...

    Kontras

    I was skeptical about the value of Glassdoor until I read the recent reviews, which are spot-on as far as I'm concerned. Where to start? Many reviews here suggest that the company started going downhill when Al Grasso left and Jason Providakes took over; but the problem actually started with Al. On the one hand, he did good things to make the company more unified; on the other hand, he instituted a culture of glad-handing...

    Rat an das Management

    Fire Jason Providakes and Rich Byrne. Make Pete Sherlock or Kerry Buckley the CEO. Forget the vanity projects. Shut down the portfolio effort - it's caused more problems, and introduced more management hassles, than it's solved. Stop communicating with your employees using glad-handing nonsense. And please - please - don't embarrass yourselves by having the Employee Experience Team respond to this review.

    Kontras

    Benefits and pay have declined precipitously compared to other FFRDCs Constant reorganizations Training budget cut every year Recent layoffs let fantastic staff go while terrible staff stayed

    Rat an das Management

    The recent layoffs were one of the most mismanaged messes I've ever seen. Top performing employees were let go while people who are completely unsuitable in their roles got to stay. It was communicated very poorly and morale is still low because of it. Some departments are extremely understaffed now because laid off people haven't been replaced.

    Pros

    Lot of nice people. Flexibility to work on multiple projects allows employees to pick up skill sets. You can have a lot of fun and learn a lot depending on the project you're working on. Also depends on the people you're working with on your project. Lots of training opportunities. Management seems to be okay with spending money to getting people certified or furthering their education. Good work-life balance. ...

    Most of the work you do amounts to a powerpoint presentation and/or a demo and no actual operational impact even if its considered impactful work by upper management. It's unfortunate that for a large number of projects out there, its more important for you to charge your hours than it is to actual contribute meaningful work. Instead of getting fired for not doing your work, you get kicked off the project once they...

    Rat an das Management

    Promote people based on actual skills, not because it is time to do so. Hire people with real industry experience and put them on projects where they can truly make an impact. Get rid of group leaders. Most barely have insight into what you do or lack the skills to understand what you're working on. Managers should only manage, not also work on projects. Often times, employees are "forgotten" since managers only...

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. MITRE puts in an almost-unheard-of 7.5% automatically, and with matching will go up to 10% (they take one year to start matching, but you're fully vested from the get-go). Net result is that you're putting in 12%, and they're putting in 10%, for a total of 22% per year. They also have student-loan repayment up to another $1800 per year (although only for 3 years). They also have subject-matter...

    Promotions beyond Level 3 are rare (as in, one person per department per year from 3 to 4, one from 4 to 5, etc). So functionally they're awarded largely by seniority, as opposed to merit. Pay is tied very closely to salary band: Level 3 (Senior) is centered at $110k (+/- 25k), Level 4 (Lead) is centered at $140k. Management convinces themselves that they're "paying above market", but that's not really correct....

    More leadership, less management. Drop the corporate jargon. Stop trying to fix things that aren't broken.

    Pros

    The work life balance is great. There is a lot of room to grow, and the direct management definitely understands the struggles of working in new fields and the need for a lot of research time.

    Kontras

    The company values individuals who plan more corporate events over the individuals that work and produce great tools/ research.

    Pros

    I am a young person ( in my 20s) who has worked at MITRE for less than 5 years. I can say that the company has great work-life balance and employees do not have to work too hard to get assignments done. Laid back atmosphere where you can enter or exit the office whenever you please. Ability to work from home multiple days a week depending on the project that you are on. No pressure from management when you take a vacation,...

    Where do I start? MITRE has a lot of problems, especially if you are a young person. MITRE is a walled/ closed door office environment. All meetings are always held on Skype even if everyone is in the building, and working on the same floor. Most of the people at MITRE are academics so they are not the most exciting people to converse with unless you are also an academic. The company has an unusual system of group leaders,...

    Go to an open office environment, stop living in the past, and go after new types of work in the tech field. MITRE has plenty of ambitious young and older people who CAN and WANT to do more but are afraid of asking for more work because they might be seen as "ungrateful" to project leaders and get kicked off of projects. Be more visible to employees. Management operates in darkness, and just gives off random commands...

      Retirement package is good but used to be better

      Company is going through a huge business transformation that is impacting every part of business operations. Outside consultants and Directors from across the company are making decisions that impact departments and processes they know nothing about. CEO keeps referring to good growth and I haven’t met someone that can explain what that means

      If you're self-motivated, behave like an adult, and are ready to work hared AND have a great work-life balance, this is the place to be! I also love how diligently we defend our freedom from conflicts of interest.

      Kontras

      If you work remotely and don't plug in (deeply!) with people on-site at the sites, you might end up frantically searching for work if your current project goes away. Just be sure to make friends and stay visible - don't embed TOO much!

      Incredibly poor management at every level - executives couldn't be more out of touch. An extreme lack of transparency exists across the management hierarchy and as a result, the company is run very inconsistently. For every ambitious individual you meet, there are about ten more who are content delivering the bare minimum or less. This is not to say that MITRE lacks talent, just expect to go well out of your way to...
