Mathematica is powerful, but you REALLY need to know how to use it to get great value from it.

Pros: The capabilities and functionalities embedded in Mathematica are almost unbounded. You can create very complex models in every branch of mathematics and statistics with this software and, in addition, Mathematica can display the final results using graphics that can be entirely customized to suit your needs--from very simple plots to very sophisticated graphical animations.

Cons: The amount of effort needed to use Mathematica in all its glory is long and steep. Unfortunately, the logic and naming conventions that make Mathematica a powerful programming language are not intuitive--there are too many rules and obscure naming conventions that are not typically used in other languages. Error messages are not very helpful for new users, and frustration can quickly set in.

Good mathematical / scientific prototyping software.

Pros: Very simple to use language / environment for mathematical and scientific computing. If you don't have a programming background, the syntax is simple and very close to how you would write and equation.

Cons: I think the only issue has to be cost. You can the same functionality (and possibly more) from free tools such as Octave.

Overall: Good mathematical / scientific computing framework, let down by the fact that there are free alternatives.

Pros: I had this school project with presentation where I needed to show complex graphs given from my teacher. I found about this software from my friend he gave me directions and it was really easy to use.

Cons: Only thing that i don't like about it is that the documentation can be really confusing sometimes. Other things are okay.

My colleagues an I believe that this a great software to have. A must for jobs involving math.

Pros: I like that I can type an equation, then choose how I want to evaluate it. Instead of typing "derive" and hoping that it isn't looking for the word "differentiate", I can just type the equation and click the derivation button.

Cons: It took me a while to figure out how it worked. But after a few minutes of trial and error, I figured out the kinks.

Overall: Quick math answers. No need to go online to use the website. No WiFi needed. Ideal for the workplace.

Pros: Its really useful for solving mathematical problems and I really like the way it gives the answer step by step also I find it easy to access the documentation although its not very helpful.

Cons: Its kinda hard to begin using it at first, I had to include a lot of google searching because i found it hard using the documentation although it was easy to access it.

Pros: Fairly steep learning curve, but an invaluable tool for advanced calculations. Depending on comfort with programming language is probably the

Cons: Due to steep learning curve I found myself doing most data analysis in programs such as Matlab. Also find myself using wolframalpha instead of mathematica due to ease of use.

Pros: For complicated algorithms or system design - Mathematica is, hands down, my favorite calculation software. You can make your calculations very presentable and can customize the look of your notebook as much as you want.

Cons: With all of the wonderful things about Mathematica - it has a fairly significant learning curve. There are lots of quick keys that make the software faster, but without it, the time to create calculations can be really slow. It takes a good amount of time to really understand the software.

Overall wolfram is good and a great learning tool. Ithas the best visual aids.

Pros: The ability to change variables and see how it effects the graph is a lot of help when trying to understand a function and how the vdidderent variables change the graph. Also just seeing a accurate representation of a equation in a graph, whether it's 2 dimension or 3 dimension, makes learning the material much easier.

Cons: A moajor con for me was the inability to get wolfram to work properly. Every time I needed to open something on wolfram I would have to manually open it with wolfram instead of just clicking on the display and having wolfram open it automatically. I would do this every time and was very annoying after the first 10 times. I don't know if wolfram doesn't work well with Macs or maybe it's older Macs. Nobody could get it to work properly and I'm still stuck doing it the long way.

Simply the best mathematics tool available

Pros: - The ability to manage symbolic functions
- The incredible amount of built-in advanced mathematical functions and operators
- The flexibility of importing, exporting and managing data in a variety of formats
- The speed of the solver
- The help. It contains a huge amount of examples and information

Cons: - The plots are pretty low-level. Could be improved.
- The error messages are almost impossible to understand.

Pros: The most critical feature of Mathematica (and Wolfram products in general) is that everything is seamlessly perfectly integrated. Everything is curated and maintained up to date.
Competing platforms like Matlab sure offer a larger set of functionalities, but the integration of the many "packages" is too often very poor.
In Mathematica, every package is fully integrated with the rest of the platform like no other software. Maybe you can say that Labview somehow reaches the same level of integration.
Mathematica is a very flexible and multi-purpose software language that can be used for programming pretty much anything.
New functionality like "Cloud-deploy" allow anybody to run algorithm made in Mathematica from anywhere in the world, from any device, with the only need of having an internet connection and a compatible browser.

Cons: Some secondary functionalities like the Presentation notebook are not so well developed, yet. That said, I doubt many will ever use it.
