I have been working at MathWorks full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Pay is decent. Stakeholder bonuses nice but average out to bonuses you'd get at any other decent software company. Nice campus.

Cons

They hire a lot of people right out of school and they tend to stay a long time. Organization is a bit inbred. Significant emphasis placed on how long you've worked there in many aspects of the job - from how much influence you have on projects to what hotel you get at the summer outing. I'm surprised that parking isn't tenure-based. Limited opportunity for promotion. Extremely process heavy. There's no problem a new process can't solve.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better at assimilating new employees. Just because someone hasn't worked at MW for 10+ years doesn't mean they won't have better ideas than those who have spent their entire careers there. Hire more experienced people from outside MW and put them in positions of influence.

    I worked at MathWorks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great emphasis on employee benefits and quality of work life ... Like great workspaces, nice offices, great cafeteria. Very family friendly.

    Cons

    Everything is decided by large groups of people and anyone can scrutinize or question a decision. This can be frustrating for experienced people who join the company and find it very difficult and Tim consuming to get decisions made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the people that you hire to make recommendations and decisions.

    - Work environment is state of the art; first-rate
    - People really like what they do; work can be fun!

    - I hope with the projected growth, the company can hold onto its positives - challenging work, great people and outstanding work environment.
    - Some of the policies on part-time work are outdated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive for the best of both worlds; retain positives from the past but embrace changes that newcomers bring to the table.
