Pros
It has a huge built-in library for functions and tools, so it is simple to utilize Matlab when used properly. More importantly, it has a great GUI tool that can make great applications with ease.
MATLAB is super great as it is so intuitive to use. Literally used it in so many of my courses like Orbital Mechanics and Compressible flow.
MATLAB is great for quick prototyping and data analysis. It is easy to learn and has great online support and help documentation.
Cons
The main downside is that MATLAB needs to make their GUI more minimalist, it's 2020 already. The other thing that I miss is an option to add semicolon automatically after every line.
Matlab is not easily translatable to learning other languages, and it is often the poorer choice when compared to other languages if matrix manipulation is not the goal.
Sometimes new versions of MATLAB will cause previous code to no longer work, which can be very frustrating.

Amazing tool once you get to know it

Reviewed 3 years ago

I administer this at work and use it personally. So far it has been great

Pros

So many features! This tool can do anything once you learn how to use it. I recommend some sort of class to teach you how to use it

Cons

severe learning curve especially if you haven't used any modeling software ever. Can be a bit intimidating at first

The quintessential utility of MATLAB

Reviewed a month ago

MATLAB has revolutionized programming and my experience with it has been ethereal. However, it’s deficiency in analysis speed and it’s compiler cost can be a deterrent for users.

Pros

MATLAB inherently bought about a paradigm shift in programming languages and has enabled matrix manipulations. It has also enabled plotting statistical analysis and incorporates implementation of complex algorithms.

Cons

MATLAB executes more slowly than compiled languages and it’s power of analysis is behind that of Python when it comes to crunching big data.

Best for mathematical modelling

Reviewed 2 years ago

Annual and monthly data collected in businesses can be easily analyzed using this software. Machine learning can be used on available data to predict on future trends in market.

Pros

MATLAB is basically a coding software. The coding language is very easy to self learn. However a basic knowledge on mathematics and coding fundamentals is needed. Any person who is familiar in any computer language can grasp the techniques of using MATLAB. Therefore the codes can be debugged easily. This is a software that can be used in mathematical modelling for in engineering fields. In electrical...

Cons

The software can be used for analysis of large data sets .However the time to process or run codes involving large data sets may take few minutes. As a result more powerful computers with improved process speed should be used in some cases to get results from the software. The interface has not been improved in improved versions. The interface can be made more user friendly. Though debugging is comparatively is easy when considering other computer languages, it will be better if it can be further improved.

Offers more than the tool has promised, outstanding features and functionality

Reviewed 2 months ago

For me and matlab, we had the best relationship. It's the first tool I see when I open my computer

Pros

When working as a quality manager your work means giving people the best product. With that you need to have a tool that will help you to me more creative and at the same time not compromise the quality. Matlab is that tool. It comes with features such as, predictive analysis, engineering CAD, statistical analysis, visualisation, fround detection among many others. All the tool are useful in handling day to day activity as quality manager

Cons

Although the tool has many features which are effective and efficient, truth be told, you will need prior training and knowledge to use and give meaningful results.

Excellent functionality and useful for data handling and analysis

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

I like the 'workspace' in the interface where a user can see the variables currently loaded, this (and the ability to insert stops when executing code) makes it easy to debug code or to otherwise verify that it's doing what you hoped it would

Cons

Depending on the type of task and coding skill, it can take a long time to run what seem like relatively basic data manipulation tasks - especially when working with strings.
