    I worked at MathWorks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, private company with quarterly bonuses based on revenue and performance. Delivery of software products for engineering and science applications. Strong penetration in the market and in University curriculum.

    Cons

    Completely development centric. No real authority as a Manager, but for managing individual contributors. Company focus on Quality, but this does not translate to better quality. Some senior managers are "untouchable" so things don't necessarily improve. Performance ratings not really set by managers; VPs can override. Managers have little say. Hard to get things done as a manager due to lots of politics. Many quality initiatives, but few have significant impact due to lack of adoption by teams that choose not to adopt quality initiatives. Flat QA organization: younger managers with 5 years of experience are at the same job level as those with 25+ years.

    Advice to Management

    To the CEO - the Quality Initiative is a failure (see above). It's a case of the emperor's new clothes. No one tells the executives that processes don't work. Not a good place for professionals who want to get things done.

    I have been working at MathWorks full-time

    Pros

    Balanced work environment with plenty of very capable people who are smart and passionate about MathWorks products and services. Campus gets better every year. For those who earn the right, there is plenty of limited autonomy. There are many other places to work, but few are as stable or secure. Wonderful suite of benefits and bonuses.

    Cons

    Insanely complex and painful review process that wastes enormous amounts of time that unfortunately has a minimal return on investment. There are significant limits on management's decision making authority as almost everything involves over-engineered processes and approvals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an open mind and be accepting of significant change. The times will require it.
