There's a lot to like, but also a huge amount of maintenance.

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Natick, MA

ProsMany excellent perks.
Low "Dilbert factor"
Many excellent people
Great building, facilities
Great pay, benefits
Many challenging aspects of the work
Learned a lot

ConsHeavy workload and lots of pressure. And the pressure only increases.

Although I was ostensibly hired to build a new product, there was still a HUGE amount of maintenance to be done on the huge amount of existing code.

Very strong culture. Which is a strength in some ways, but it also means that only a "certain kind of person" is a good fit. Are you that kind of person? Ask a lot of questions. And don't assume that MathWorks is uniformly great in all groups.

Much of the code in my area (Simulink) was overly complex. Entire frameworks were created to insulate business logic from technology choices (e.g., Java implementation, Qt implementation). Result: a large amount of work was typically required to implement even the simplest feature.

In my group, management did not have very good management skills. Running the new project seemed to be an "afterthought"...the top job was making all the bug-fix numbers. And the new project ended up getting canceled.

Advice to Senior ManagementAmazing how a place with so many cool perks and generally nice people can feel so grim, empty and soulless.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    incompetent management, too many egotistical seniors , slow grown

    Quality Engineer (Former Employee)
    Natick, MA

    I worked at MathWorks full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: OThers will review on the pros. Let me focus on… Cons: First of all it is surprising to me that company has so many 5 start ratings from current employees, as if they have be asked… Advice to Senior Management: let competent people come up. Their hard work makes the product… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
