    I have been working at MathWorks full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Company core values are demonstrated everyday, it's not just words on the webpage. One reason I joined was the opportunity for professional growth, not only do they have courses, but the management and employees are knowledgeable and are great examples and mentors for the skills taught.
    - No politics: everyone is here to help the company and their co-workers succeed.
    - Profitable company that shares its success with the employees through a stakeholder bonus.
    - Decisions are not made on a whim, they are analyzed and understood before taking action. Decisions can take a while with this approach but overall it is a smart way to do business.
    - intelligent employees that respect your intelligence

    Cons

    - As mentioned above, sometimes decisions can take a little longer than you might like; but is worth it in the end.
    - Standard procedures that have been well vetted and exist in some areas of the company, but not all.
