I have been working at MathWorks full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Everyone generally gets their own office in Natick.

Good perks like wed. breakfast and fri. cookies.

Coworkers are friendly.

Frequent events both during and after hours.

Allowed to drink at work. I see this as a respect thing and couldn't do this at my previous employer.

Schedule is generally flexible, but I can see this depending on your manager.

On-site gym (~$7/month). Brand new facility and classes included in membership fee.

MathWorks products are used by every high tech company. Search the jobs here on Glassdoor for MATLAB or Simulink and see who's using the tools.

CEO uses the same amenities as everyone. Same gym... waits in line for a shower in the locker room (not anymore with the new facility), waits in line for breakfast, for coffee/cappuccino and parks in whatever spot is available in the garage when he's not driving his volt. Installed multiple car chargers so he and other electric vehicle owners can charge.

Cons

Industry is moving towards 'unlimited' vacation. Not sure if this would be a pro or con with the ways it can be implemented.

Base pay generally feels like below average and the quarterly bonus brings it somewhere between average and slightly above average. This means the bonus really isn't a 'bonus' when you consider it a critical part of your pay...

Things feel painfully slow at times in a fast-moving industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some decisions can be better delegated to lower level managers. Everything seems to go to the top which seems wasteful and slow.
