MITRE Named a Washington Post Top Workplace for Second Year in a Row

The Washington Post Top Workplaces list for 2016

McLean, Va., June 20, 2016—The Washington Post has named The MITRE Corporation to its Top Workplaces list for 2016. MITRE was ranked 8 out of 20 companies in the category of largest organizations with 500 employees or more in the Washington, D.C., area.

The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. MITRE employees scored the organization highest on offering the flexibility to balance work and personal life and its benefits package.

“We are thrilled to be named to The Washington Post’s list for the second year in a row,” said Julie Gravallese, MITRE’s vice president and chief human resources officer. “We are proud to be known for offering our employees flexibility, great benefits, and the opportunity to contribute to our nation’s most pressing challenges. We all have many choices, and we are grateful our employees have chosen to be part of the MITRE family.”

MITRE employees who work at the organization’s McLean headquarters or in the Washington, D.C., area, provide systems engineering, research and development and IT support to a range of government sponsors and customers. MITRE’s McLean campus is also home to state-of-the-art labs including one focused on aviation safety and another on nanotechnology.

The Washington Post’s 2016 Top Workplaces survey was conducted by employee survey firm WorkplaceDynamics. The survey measured individuals’ responses to statements regarding key factors related to employee happiness including company direction, execution, employee connection, work load and responsibility, management, and pay and benefits.

The Washington Post published the complete list of Top Workplaces on June 19, 2016.
