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

Pros

MathWorks provides great benefits and a solid work/life balance.
I work with interesting people and there are a mix of cultures and backgrounds.

Cons

For some the commute to Natick is a problem. Natick is a nice town, but the campus is not located right off a major highway.

    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.

    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?
