    J'ai travaillé chez MITRE en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 10 ans)

    Avantages

    benefits, interesting work, good people, good mission, non-profit

    Inconvénients

    retirement match falling behind national labs and competitors (e.g., Booz Allen). Major strategic mistake to downgrade DoD/IC work (~60% of work program, 90% of demand) in favor of groveling for VA, IRS, HHS work (so 2010s!).
    Staff uniformly hates corporate management; management thinks everyone loves them.

    Conseils à la direction

    Stop hiring the cheapest people you can find. Get back to basics: speak truth to power, be the smartest guy in the room, be willing to walk.
    If you want to cut costs, offer early retirement bonuses.

    Avantages

    Great national-impact problems to solve; not “turn the crank” engineering.
    Excellent tech staff; lots of collaboration
    Good benefits
    Nice facilities, many locations (&some telework options)

    Inconvénients

    New executive team getting its bearings
    Reductions in benefits for several years running

    Conseils à la direction

    Listen to the workforce; get out of the penthouse more often
    Stop outsourcing functions
    Be clearer about what you plan to do. Too many business buzzwords & “initiatives.”

    Avantages

    Depending on where you work, MITRE does some really interesting technical work
    Work-life balance is excellent with flexible hours
    Benefits are very good by contractor standards

    Inconvénients

    Management seems to be flailing around with pointless reorganizations and new buzz terms, instead of addressing real problems.
    Management is more worried about the process, than the actual results

    Avantages

    The campuses are very nice; the gym is very good; flexible scheduling can come in very handy; wonderful coworkers, benefits have slowly eroded but are still good

    Inconvénients

    Senior management does not communicate plans. You cannot tell what projects are currently in the pipeline that exemplify "making the world safer" or "good growth strategy."
    CEO off on vacation in the middle of a layoff. (Why would he advertise that? )

    Conseils à la direction

    Replace the CEO with one who can communicate a vision

    Je travaille chez MITRE à plein temps

    Avantages

    HQ is in a good location, nice/updated facilities, and good people in the lower-to-mid ranks that really do want to have impact and have their heads on straight.

    Inconvénients

    It's all about speed now. Forget quality, or creating something fundamental... like a business plan. That just slows progress according to executive leadership. Just "make the thing" and roll it out with lofty/impractical expectations and vision statements masquerading as project goals and milestones. And when those "goals" obviously don't come to fruition, make sure you throw the developers and various support staff under the bus because they can't cut it or "aren't doing their jobs." Surely it isn't/wasn't your absurd leadership that's to blame, because you're the smartest in the room. Always. .......... Please note the sarcasm, because I'm laying it on pretty thick.

    Conseils à la direction

    Decision making and certain hires/appointments to certain leadership roles in the company are very disappointing. The past year and a half has seen an INCREDIBLE drop in employee engagement and morale. You know this, but you all but admit you don't care. Nothing changes, and people feel like they're treated like dirt. There was a time when MITRE was considered the best place most of us had ever worked at. The culture wasn't toxic, leadership actually cared about people, and they actually took the time to look us "peons" in the eye and say hello in the hallways... vs. continue walking or ignore us like we don't exist. You're destroying a great company with your arrogance and refusal to do certain things in a logical way.

    Avantages

    The facilities are co-workers are awesome. Terrific projects that make you believe as if you are making a difference.

    Inconvénients

    Traffic in McLean is horrible and not getting any better. More teleworking would benefit employees. Sr. Management does not seem to be on the same page and internal arguing is becoming rampant and very obvious to employees.

    Conseils à la direction

    Spent more time focusing on MITRE's core business and less on "commercial" work. We can't be all to everyone! Stop hiring employees who don't have assignments; it's very discouraging. Try to take time to notice your employees; you were once just an employee!

    Avantages

    Good people, flexible work schedule and competitive benefits.

    Inconvénients

    MITRE has a new CEO. This has resulted in many leadership changes. They are making many changes and it's not clear whether they are for the better.

    The corporation has hired many new employees because it anticipates more work. It's not clear that this is actually occurring. Newly hired and current employees are on overhead for extended periods of time.

    The company is in the process of layoffs in Corporate which is not being handled well. Also, the increased hiring of technical staff is concerning because work seems too thin. Layoffs of technical staff may occur.

    It has been a good company, but don't recommend working here until things settle.

    Conseils à la direction

    Stop trying to change the corporation too quickly. It is hurting it. Senior leadership has to be more transparent in their decision making. It's not clear why these changes are being made nor how it will benefit the company. Changing the leadership and making changes at the same time is quite reckless.

    Avantages

    Benefits, culture, work/life balance, employee clubs and services, philanthropic work, community engagement, vacation/holiday package.

    Inconvénients

    Deadwood. Tenured staff taking advantage of remote workplace environment lacking any accountability or performance metrics. Excessive personal matters over business concerns are evident at times. Potential layoffs.

    Conseils à la direction

    Eliminate work-time breakfasts or extended meal breaks. Enforce a level playing field for all employees where experienced workers inherit unproductive skills. Promote teamwork over individual accomplishments. The legacy of separated walled work space permeates the business landscape. Mr President, "Tear down those walls"... Push to implement group development fostering participation and engage the aspiring workforce seeking additional involvement.

    Senior Management fail to lead by example. Lack ability to effectively communicate intent of change. They depend on weakly formed “narratives” which are developed in a vacuum.

    CEO is absent, be present. Lead by example. Listen to directors and managers. Hold management accountable.

    Avantages

    Staff are talented, hard working and just great to work with. Th emission of MITRE is one I have believed in since day one.

    Inconvénients

    Management has changed and appear to view staff as easily replacable and something to be discarded after a certain expiration date (currently 58+) .

    Conseils à la direction

    Don't discriminate because us older workers are still valuable. "Retirement" packages offered right before a RIF are akin to an offer sr. staff dare not refuse.
