Pros

Every strives to do the right thing. Sometimes that is hard to determine, but there is an earnest effort to seek what that is.

Cons

As the company is going, the culture that has made it a great place to work is slowly being degraded by influx of new blood bringing bureaucratic processes.

Advice to Management

Continue to seek the best employees and the best out of the employees. Be reluctant to introduce new processes that hinder the founding culture.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    it's a good software company to work with. It's products, namely Matlab and Simulink, hold the leading position in the industry.

    Cons

    In this economic downturn, more and more I feel disappointed of the company's handling of the layoffs it has been carrying out. It's secretive at the best, very sneaky. Employees often get the news of who gets let go by the word of mouth. The company basically refuses to admit any layoff.

    Advice to Management

    If you are systematically laying off the employees, at least everyone who works here has the right to know what is going on. The morale definitely is impacted by not knowing what should have been made public.

    Pros

    Stable company, great perks and excellent work-life balance. A lot of really smart people with diverse interests. Very friendly environment.

    Cons

    Not much gets done in this organization. Everything requires 20 meetings and 30 follow-ups and 40 post-mortem reviews. I am impressed at how smart people get into this rut of putting process over results. My suspicion is that MathWorks is now such a big company that it is hard to know the where the money comes from. As a result, it is impossible to correlate action to results.

    Advice to Management

    Inbred managers with 15-20yrs tenure at MathWorks wield too much power and too little imagination. Get rid of them and bring in outside managers who have both the ambition and the drive to get things done.
