I have been working at MathWorks full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

You will definitely be challenged and encouraged to take initiative at MathWorks. People who work hard get rewarded and those who slack off are gone quickly. You don't have to leave the company to get a good merit increase, and profit sharing is excellent. MathWorks is a great working atmosphere with small perks that help keep employees happy.

Cons

Although the company is trying to hold on to small-company values, it is growing rapidly. As a result, more blanket policies and formal processes are being applied which hinder creativity and innovation.

Advice to Management

Continue rewarding people who take initiative and work hard, and get rid of those who don't perform. Challenge the value of blanket policies and processes, including those trying to penny-pinch budgets. Some processes may add more employee labor cost than the expense they would save.

    I worked at MathWorks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    MathWorks is a well-oiled machine. They have great on-boarding programs that introduce you to the culture and set you up to succeed in your position. They are a very staff-oriented company and every department seems to be relaxed - even sales.

    Cons

    Growing your salary can be difficult, especially for a non-technical employee.

    Advice to Management

    Management is involved in too many meetings. This can make them unavailable to staff and can really just be a huge waste of time. Save everyone an hour by sending out a solid email.
