      The Emperor's Wardrobe is Getting Sorta See-Through

      Nov 15, 2021 - Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits, though slightly trimmed from year to year, are still very good relative to industry. Demands and tempo are slow, gentle, varying a bit by project. You can have a cushy, low-stress life here, for decades, and, if you stay in to make maximal use of the retirement program, you will end up a paper millionaire.

      Cons

      A while back, the management consulting vultures told MITRE it was sitting on an untapped cash cow, that its brand was solid but virtually unknown, that its reputation was growing dull, passe, pricey, that it could be five or ten times greater with some aggression and re-invention. Senior leadership has cycled a few times since then, proclaiming We Will Change, Grow, Take Risks, We Will Be Younger, Faster, Different, Less Ivory Tower... each more forcefully than the last. These goals are not, by themselves, "bad," but their rhythm has ramped up past the point of sanity. New business angles and buzzwords fly by faster than the organization's ability to focus. Unclear whether this is fear of extinction, or just executive ego and muscle-flexing. Whatever the cause, our random flailing cannot continue.

      Another holiday, another layoff

      Nov 24, 2021 - Manager in McLean, VA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people committed to serving in the public interest. Opportunities with impact in serving the Federal Sector

      Cons

      Complete lack of empathy or ability to execute Corporate strategies without causing major wreckage. One would think firing 40 senior staff to settle old scores just 2 days before the 4th of July would be enough for the CEO to demonstrate his omnipotence. Nope. Let’s double down and fire close to 100 staff two days before Thanksgiving to foment greater fear and uncertainty in the workforce. Better yet, do this under a cloak of darkness so no one will know what hit them.

      Constant Churn, Golden Handcuffs

      Nov 1, 2021 - CyberSecurity Engineer in Jacksonville, NC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      great benefits, always something new to learn, pockets of great people

      Cons

      Cannot trust the corporation, Cannot focus on a long-term path since the CEO is so manic which has created a constant churn for the past several years, looking to hire younger staff and pay them less than current employees and they are losing focus of being a long-term, strategic national asset to trying to be another Google, Microsoft, or Facebook (just not public)

      Pros

      Great benefits, interesting work, intelligent people

      Cons

      Company has gone full woke. Vaccine mandate implement without grace and respect. CEO said anyone who is not VAC will fired on November 22nd. No communication to the nonVAC want to do as of Friday, 11/19. Managers are not told who will be gone on 11/22 as of Friday, 11/22.

      Excellent culture, educational opportunities, diversity of work, and collaboration.

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great retirement benefits - Opportunity to work on a diverse range of problems if you know how to network

      Cons

      - Continually forced to job-hunt within your job to find new projects to work on to charge time to - Leadership is totally out of touch from its workforce and forcing people to come back on campus to sit in online calls all day, something they could do from home
