    Pros

    Some members of the middle and senior management team are admirably approachable. Many colleagues are really great to work with, welcoming new ideas and thinking. Some great technical talent. EDU teams are top-notch. Processes are well-intentioned (even if a bit naive). Great benefits, great work/life balance. A lot of potential to do great things (but don't expect to do so as rapidly as you might have elsewhere).

    Cons

    Monetary comp below industry norm for mid-career hires. Great for junior folks who have a lot to learn and haven't seen things done differently elsewhere.

    Roles named "Product Manager" are what the industry refers to as "Product Marketing Manager," operating from within the Marketing department thus misperceived by peers as "Marketing people." Dev leads are the final authority on requirements despite whomever may have invested more energy eliciting marketplace requirements. Some teams are better about collaborating on this than others. Escalation of opportunities to do better is unwelcome.

    Some managers are great, others are duds. Be absolutely certain there is strong rapport and fit with this person before accepting an offer.

    Advice to Management

    Prune the weeds and politicking in first-level manager ranks to bring reality closer to stated values. Two ways to identify the dud managers: 1) probe even more deeply during semi-annual reviews and 2) reach deeply into the org.

    Effective managers need to be passionate about the business, probing may reveal this. Excuses about taking topics offline or failure to answer directly probably means they've not taken enough interest to learn the area.

    Reaching deeply, few if any will answer directly at this point (those who have have since "gotten off the bus"). Now the best you can do is identify fear; those who hesitate, hold back, appear to not be developing in their careers, offer short answers etc. are probably behaving this way for a reason.

    Sadly, this all will require what Mathworks' senior leadership likes doing least: stepping up to awkward interpersonal confrontations.
