I have been working at MathWorks full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Stable company, friday cookies, Summer outings, wednesday breakfasts, Quaterly Bonuses.

Cons

Average gross pay. Review system is a waste of time. Managers will decide the rating way before the employees writing their reviews, so it's a mere waste. Promotions are based on the seniority and not based on skill set.

    Pros

    You usually get a nice office

    Cons

    The pay is 30% to 40% lower than comparable positions at similarly sized software companies. The company uses a fairly arbitrary stack ranking policy so the managers are a bunch of butt-covering mediocrities who couldn't use a piece of software if their lives depended on it, never mind design and code up a piece of software.

    Advice to Management

    Are you still doing stack ranking? Honestly, what is wrong with you?

    I have been working at MathWorks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Generally great work atmosphere, generally little politics, freedom and encouragement to communicate across the board.

    Cons

    sometimes political, no promotions, lengthy review process and absolutely no work from home, like a secretary. Cult of Jack Little. Cult of admiration to seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline unnecessarily micromanaging review process and align to 21-century normal telecommuting policies. No work from home is just a show stopper for a sustainable company.
