    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 3 years)

    Pros

    - Very well structured
    - Company offers a clear view of goals for all areas
    - Family style environment - everybody knows everybody
    - Benefits are amazing

    Cons

    - Slow to change
    - Hard to move around between areas
    - Do as I say, not as I do ( Managers enforcing rules that they don't follow).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people, not the numbers.

    Pros

    Very friendly colleagues & culture. You are treated like a human being that has other priorities outside of work. There is a strong effort to make the culture and environment a place you want to be and do positive work. Looking at the long term strategy.

    Cons

    You have to come in each day- but it's a great place to be! So it's not bad!
