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

Pros

There's a reason so many people apply for jobs at MathWorks. And there's a reason so many stay for a long time.
+ Your opinion matters - even (perhaps especially) if you just started.
+ Lots of interesting projects, collaboration with other teams, and an opportunity to shine
+ A culture of respecting and investing in each other
+ Great work environment with individual offices, new facilities, and many perks
+ Profitable every quarter with a generous profit sharing plan

Cons

This isn't the right place for someone who:
+ wants a lofty title. MathWorks is a somewhat flat organization where titles aren't really used.
+ needs to work from home regularly. Work from home is generally limited to three times a year.
+ is a loner who likes to work independently. It's all about collaboration.

Advice to Management

Stay the course!

    I have been working at MathWorks full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.
