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.

    I worked at MathWorks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Products that make a difference in the world
    - Bright and challenging co-workers
    - Financially successful private company with enormous cash reserves. No need to worry about MW going out of business for a long, long time
    - Nice facilities (campus, FitWorks, cafe)
    - Generous traditions (yearly Mt Washington family trip, 5-year 'big trips', Wednesday breakfast, cookies)
    - If your management chain likes you, you can take on lots of responsibility, change processes, and have lots of fun.

    Cons

    - Review process is tortuous. From January to May, everyone dreads writing their self-review. Mid-level managers have god-awful meetings to mud-wrestle with their peers to rank each member of their team against individuals from other team. It's just false - comparing apples to oranges. And, no one really has adequate knowledge to make these judgments. In reality, senior management identifies which stars to reward and which low-performers to cull out.
    - Having multiple levels of the stakeholder (profit-sharing) program doesn't pass the sunlight test.
    - MathWorks has had layoffs. If the economy takes a downturn and you aren't getting high ratings, be prepared to look for a new job.

    Advice to Management

    - Don't micromanage and don't pit managers against each other. Allow mid-level management control over the review ratings of their team, then judge the manager on the team's success or failure.
