    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Natick, MA

    I have been working at MathWorks

    Pros

    Smart and fun coworkers in a laid back working environment. People tend to approach things in a very logical and rational way. Geek humor is prevalent throughought the company. The employee amenities are excellent - individual offices, decent cafeteria, snacks and drinks, and fun company outings.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for serious career advancement, and the algorithmic compensation structure does not encourage heroic efforts. Natick is a sleepy town for young professionals.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Natick, MA

    I worked at MathWorks

    Pros

    This is a stable environment in a great location. The work-life balance is excellent. They have an old but established product. Lots of bright people around

    Cons

    The company is full of slogans about their values that are largely absent in practice. The review process is political and highly unfair. People stick around for decades and do next to nothing. They are promoted based on who they know. The biggest problem is that this environment is detached from the real world of software development. The skill set you pick up may not be what others need. In short you have to drink the kool-aid and sing the company song otherwise you are in trouble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the middle management. Bring people from outside. Stop being so insular
