A well-respected company with a solid product line and future!

IT Professional (Current Employee)
Natick, MA

I have been working at MathWorks full-time for more than a year

ProsMathWorks is a world-renowned company making the best tools possible. Highly technical and smart people.

My major kudos to:
- Quarterly (profit sharing) bonuses helps significantly with the base salary.
- Free breakfast/cookies/drinks.
- Nice gestures of appreciation (i.e. Ice cream day, annual MW weekend in NH).
- Extremely solid company expanding for future growth and reinvesting; job is well-secured.
- Nice, collaborative environment, friendly workers all around campus.

ConsMy major gripes:
- Too much micro-management, not enough trust. Can't get my work done independently and move on without being constantly bothered by another meeting, a process or workflow change, or the status of something.
- Lower than average base salary for doing a hell of a job.
- Not enough opportunities for in-house training or courses (unless it's MATLAB or coding related).
- Performance reviews are long and drawn out for a small salary increase.
- People need to learn to do their homework before escalating the easiest problems that can be fixed by the power of Google, even if you're not tech-savvy.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement doesn't listen well enough to their team members who get the work done. Your opinion doesn't matter. It will be their way or the highway.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

An excellent place to work, if you like to be challenged

Senior Technical Consultant (Current Employee)
