    I have been working at MITRE full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Still some very nice, good people to work with. Unique ability to work inside the Federal Government

    Cons

    The business majors have taken over. They are warping it from an expert organization to a bunch of salespeople that don't care about the product, just about the next contract. They're also obsessed with whatever is trendy in tech, like machine leaning and AI. You're unlikely to ever get promoted at MITRE. It takes your whole career to get anywhere.

    You can work with smart people on some innovative research.
