    Pros

    You can work remotely from home

    Cons

    The women there treat other women below them like dirt. They won’t even interview a woman if her social media shows she’s pretty. They’re not nice to subordinates at all and talk down to us. Beware- they check your Facebook before calling you in for an interview

        Pros

        Smart People. Interesting Projects. Fairly Flexible Schedule.

        Cons

        Anemic Benefits. Complex politics dictated by demographics and a pointed outsourcing orientation might be demotivating for many.

        I worked at MSC Software full-time

        Pros

        New ownership (Hexagon) is taking the company in a positive direction after years of being squeezed by private equity. Problems that you get to work on are very important and interesting to critical industries like automotive and aerospace. Good support from HR as they are working hard to improve the culture at the company and to provide opportunities for training, like Coursera.

        Cons

        Outsourcing to India has produced low performance in certain areas of the company and the amount of outsourcing may only continue.

        Advice to Management

        Support core products as much as newer products and do your best to not make the developers on the core products feel irrelevant
