    I have been working at Mathematica full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Smart people all around, some interesting projects, great opportunity for bookish PhDs to learn business skills, nice salary relative to other similar companies, nice work/life balance

    Cons

    Terrible management in survey division, cold working environment, work not divided in an equitable manner, some supervisors and division managers (especially in DC survey division) play favorites, little accountability at higher levels, little contact with the outside world (all communication outside of the company must go through project directors), not much opportunity to learn substantive or methodological research (or survey research) skills,

    I worked at Mathematica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Mathematica has some of the kindest humans on earth. The work is rigorous, motivating, and fun. I learned so much there and miss the team very much.

    Cons

    No New York City office (yet?).
