    I have been working at MathWorks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Private offices: collaborate with a co-worker on the whiteboard/computer without interruptions. People are nice, and there are no dirty politics. There's an kitchen operating for lunch everyday, so you never run out of options; food is not free, but cheap. There's a good gym; again, cheap. Work depends on the responsibilities you choose to take.

    Cons

    The software is pretty ad-hoc, and people add their broken knowledge to the mess. Certain processes are inefficient, and cannot be changed. Salary doesn't go up very much, and people depend on their bonuses. There's quite a bit of hierarchy and upper management does not know the ground realities.

    Working with Matlab code as a Software Engineer seems to be a not very sought after skill outside of MathWorks.
