Great place to work but slow in recognizing impact of younger staff - very 'old school.'

I have been working at MITRE

ProsMITRE is in most ways a fantastic place to work. The company provides good flexibility and stability, and provides work that makes a difference to the well-being of the United States. The benefits package is very good for the industry.

ConsMITRE tends to exhibit many older company ideals such as secretive promotions and compensation decisions, cliquish upper management tendencies and a "wait your turn" mentality. Overall, the positives outweigh the negatives.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstitute clear processes for promotion and compensation practices and beware of watering down the brand in a well-intentioned drive to reduce costs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
