    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Best work culture, great work life balance. The overall salary looks less as compared to some other giants in the Boston area but we get quarterly performance bonus which makes up for it. The bonus is quite sizable. The company is a billion-dollar software company with a startup culture so you get best of both worlds.

    Cons

    Work can get monotonous after a while. Not much avenues to explore specially for a software engineer.

    I worked at MathWorks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best place to work if your top priority is work-life balance

    Pros

    Stable future outlook, very impactful products
    Excellent work environment, respects the employees.
    Great core values, actually followed, not just words on paper.

    Cons

    If you only look at the short term, you may feel that things move slow. When looking at the long-term, it's clear that the careful decision-making actually helps focus on the right priorities for future growth and opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Great Benefits - Good People. Relaxed & Positive Atmosphere. Lot's of opportunities to work with other Teams within the company and explore areas of interest.

    Cons

    Salaries are a little lower than they could be based on the extensive amount of benefits we're given.

    Advice to Management

    In general I think the company could provide more competitive salaries as not everyone takes advantage of all the available benefits. There are lots of things I'd be willing to exchange for a bump in Salary.

    - Good work life balances and benefits

    Cons

    - Work from home policy is not encouraged
    - Compensation is better than most companies but not great enough for the location (heard that has changed now)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do!
