    I worked at Mathematica full-time

    Pros

    Good amount of PTO Good Pay (which at times is bad because you price out the competition) Nice selection of Tea and Coffee

    Cons

    Mis-management galore. Politics all over the place. Antiquated policies and processes. Don't have a good handle on staff development. Multiple bosses for one person. Project problems are brushed under the rug till very late. most of the work is put on the shoulders of a few staff members. Newly hired senior staff have no idea of the culture of the company. Management wants to hire people to address gaps in the knowledge but does not empower them to take appropriate actions. Senior management is too distanced from staff and does not understand project problems. New Project Directors have no idea how to to run a project. Supervisors harass people with asinine demands. Mr. Decker is great on the web conferences but has never taken a chance to meet and listen to the staff.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. With the flexibility to work from home you are truly able to have the best of both worlds.

    Cons

    At times the work distribution gets impacted due to project schedule shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire junior staff to assist with work flow.

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

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly. Office space is great. Rigorous recruiting process. Strong quality of work. It appears the company rewards people for their tenure and commitment.

    Cons

    People seem to work in silos. They only know their part of a project/process. Despite the rigorous recruiting the salary is not competitive. You have to fight tooth and nail and you’ll still come up short. Benefits are also not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to hire more non-entry level/mid- career folks offer better packages (salary and/or benefits).
