    I have been working at MathWorks (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been with MathWorks for over 15 years, and have never seriously considered leaving. While many companies espouse guiding principles and core values, I've never seen a company that actually lives them the way MathWorks does. Management is both responsive and open-minded. The atmosphere is relaxed but the work expectation is top-notch.

    Cons

    Consensus-based decision-making can be frustrating on occasion.

    I have been working at MathWorks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free food, free time. Happy people playing in the games room. Respectful in general. No layoffs so perfect for immigrants. Everyone has own offices that people love. Smart people.

    Cons

    Promotions based on tenure than performance. Perfect for retirement. Lower salaries in a not-so-cheap Boston suburb. New college grads love the place and then quit within 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Pay heed to the exit interview feedback. I see nothing changed based on people's valid feedbacks. I don't plan to divulge much in

    I have been working at MathWorks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I absolutely love the learning environment at MathWorks. There's a club or "birds of a feather" group for any topic you can think of from Photography to Makers. There are regular guest speakers from academia and industry invited to speak. Not only has it benefited my professional career but also my personal/hobby projects.

    Cons

    In a data driven company it is often hard to avoid analysis paralysis.

    Advice to Management

    Try to ensure the nurturing aspects of MathWorks are preserved as the company grows.
