    I worked at MathWorks as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Free membership to science museum
    - Discounted gym membership
    - Free cookies on Friday

    Cons

    - Too much 'micro-managing' (you literally have like 5 different people to respond to)
    - Too disorganized (for the same reasons above)
    - Not enough effort to facilitate interaction between the interns
    - Not as much pay and perks as other software companies
    - Noticeable difference between the treatment of interns and the treatment of full time employees
    - You share an office with a full-time EDG employee who's most of the time on the phone solving "technical problems using MATLAB® and Simulink®."

    Advice to Management

    I think the hiring committee could have definitely made it clearer the difference between the EDG program and a regular software engineering internship program. By not making this clear, a lot of interns (including myself) felt confused by what the program entailed as well as possible future employment at the company. The truth is, the interns do NOT want to work in 'technical support,' and by not making this clear in the first place, it definitely felt like the company is desperate and somewhat deceitful to recruit more people for this position. Why waste talent (some people had Masters and PhDs) on technical support? This is what online documentation is for.

    I worked at MathWorks as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work culture
    Smart colleagues
    Perks / benefits / wages
    Productive work

    Cons

    Work from home is absent (Although, I think it is good to have the whole team working together).
    Interns are not preferred in their new college grad program for full-time hiring.

    Advice to Management

    Interns must be preferred in EDG (since we have good experience with MATLAB and Simulink).
