Pros

Good camaraderie among co-workers. 401K matching.

Cons

Just can't' tell when the company will arrive at stability.

Advice to Management

The open work space concept without offices just DON'T work!!! It's too noisy and too disruptive and too many opportunities for people to engage in non-essential small talk.

    MSC is an entirely different company now with STG

    I worked at MSC Software

    Pros

    My direct manager was most excellent, I dearly miss him and working for him. I am confident that STG and Dominic will be good for MSC in the long-run, they have a long-term, not Wall Street-based vision.

    Cons

    Not much sense of adventure or greater purpose.

    Advice to Management

    Build a strong in-house design capability. Take a look at what Autodesk is doing in this area.

    MSC Software does too many lay-offs even and shifted most jobs to India

    Pros

    You can get too much free time in your work and thus one can do your personal work in between.

    Cons

    Promotion is hard to impossible even though company has too much cash still they aren't offering any bonuses to employees since 2008 when the company went into private management of Symphony Technology Group(STG)

    Advice to Management

    Please offer more benefits to employees as Autodesk, PTC and others give to their employees
