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

Pros

* Financially stable company
* Still growing - lots of opportunities
* Smart, hard working employees (though some are a little entitled and out-of-touch)
* Great work/life balance

Cons

* Middle-bottom of the payscale
* Benefits are now just average (where they once were outstanding)
* Limited opportunities for advancement outside of Development (the company is big on "lateral promotions")
* Middle management heavy...prepare to be micromanaged
* "Work from home" not allowed (the policy states WFH allowed a max of 0-3 days a year. Yes, ZERO to three)...though the senior management who crafted the policy seem to answer a lot of emails from their empty offices.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay and perks. Stable company and I work with fun smart creative people.

    Cons

    The critical culture is helpful for continous improvement, but rarely celebrates what one has done well. Some managers do this well, but management and coaching skills are inconsistent as many get promoted for their technical skills.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the human nature of feedback, and adjust the performance review process to focus more on the positive, to help motivate all employees.
