Pros

Every strives to do the right thing. Sometimes that is hard to determine, but there is an earnest effort to seek what that is.

Cons

As the company is going, the culture that has made it a great place to work is slowly being degraded by influx of new blood bringing bureaucratic processes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to seek the best employees and the best out of the employees. Be reluctant to introduce new processes that hinder the founding culture.

    Pros

    it's a good software company to work with. It's products, namely Matlab and Simulink, hold the leading position in the industry.

    Cons

    In this economic downturn, more and more I feel disappointed of the company's handling of the layoffs it has been carrying out. It's secretive at the best, very sneaky. Employees often get the news of who gets let go by the word of mouth. The company basically refuses to admit any layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are systematically laying off the employees, at least everyone who works here has the right to know what is going on. The morale definitely is impacted by not knowing what should have been made public.

    Pros

    Fun projects, interesting potential to use software for personal use. Free cookies, breakfasts, and misc other swag. Good nerdy environment, with some potential for growth, in the right career track. Great culture...if you drink the koolaid.

    Cons

    Management is abysmal. For being a place that "accelerates the pace of science and engineering", the whole place seems stuck in the 80s. Death by committee review is prominent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make a decision. Any decision. Then stick to it. Don't call another round of reviews in 6 months/a decade, refuse to do research into what you're reviewing, then make arbitrary suggestions for "improvement".
