We conduct ourselves with uncompromising integrity and honesty as individuals, as teams, and as a company. We strive to earn enduring credibility with others, which we believe is essential to long-term personal and business relationships:
Act with integrity and honesty
We use a variety of digital forums and face-to-face meetings to communicate with each other, such as our company intranet site, internal social networking platform, and regular worldwide company meetings. These communications channels give us access to important information about the company and our business that is not available elsewhere. We believe in transparency; that is, sharing both good news and bad, and expect staff members to actively participate in these forums.
At MathWorks, we encourage people to take the initiative to make things better by speaking up and being a constructive agent of change. We foster an open work environment, and have created systems and processes that make it easy for people to offer any constructive comment, suggestion, or criticism of our products, company, and policies. These include a bug reporting system, an IT/Facilities help system, an internal social network, post-event surveys, and a section on the annual review forms. We also support an open door policy and encourage everyone to discuss individual, group, or company concerns with their manager or with any other member of the management team or with Human Resources—without fear of reprisal.
