We offer up to $28,000 annually toward further education. Hope to adopt a child? Receive a $2,500 stipend to assist with related expenses. Looking to volunteer? We offer 40 hours of paid leave each year to lend your time and talent to causes you care about.

Plan Each Day

Parental Leave Designed to give you time to bond with a new addition to your family. You have access to up to 12 weeks of paid leave to provide flexibility for bonding with your new family member. You must use your 12 weeks within 12 months of the date of birth or placement. Weeks 1-4 will be paid at 100%, and weeks 5-12 will be paid at 80%*. This plan provides expanded flexibility, allowing parents up to a calendar year from birth or placement to use the leave program.
healthcare worker with elderly woman
Caregiver Leave Designed to support us when we need time away from work to care for a family member with a serious medical condition. A serious medical condition is one that requires inpatient treatment or continuing care from a healthcare provider. This benefit will provide up to 12 weeks of paid time off. Weeks 1-4 will be paid at 100%, while weeks 5-12 will be paid at 60%*. You can take this leave in daily, weekly, or hourly increments.

Paid Time-Off Bank Conserve your accrued hours in your Paid Time-Off Bank (PTOB) to use for vacations, personal time, and sick days. The rate of accrual is based on your status as either an exempt or non-exempt employee as well as years of service. If you are a non-exempt employee, you receive additional PTOB time because you do not have the same workday flexibilities as an exempt employee, such as the ability to “flex” hours during a two-week pay period

"MITRE saw beyond the 15 years I stepped away from the workforce to raise my children and hired me based on the breadth of what I had to offer, including previous technical experience and skills honed from over a decade of volunteering."
