    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic forward looking company making software tools for the future. Coworkers are the smartest people I've ever worked with and are passionate about our mission.

    Cons

    Large corporation that grows primarily by acquisition. This and due to making a wide range of products tends to create cultural silos in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be flexible with teams and vertical groups. Work to reduce silos and increase sharing of tools across the company.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best Manager - Very Motivational and Helpful World Class Salary - I was paid the highest salary autodesk can offer Immense Learning Curve - If you have the crave to learn new stuffs and work in an environment or product containing millions of LOC then autodesk is the place to work

    Cons

    Very Competitive - Most of the colleagues are very experienced and smart people so we have to work hard to compete with others Sometimes need to work long hours to get things completed, because all the products are very complex architectural design

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A large community of highly intelligent individuals. A high level of inter-discipline collaboration. Fertile ground for growing professional relationships and networks.

    Cons

    At times the attention span and level of commitment to initiatives by senior management changes rapidly. What was paramount one day is irrelevant the next.

    Advice to Management

    When making commitments to employees and teams, be clear on your objectives and remain as committed to your teams as they are to you. Take the time to listen to those employees closest to the work. Often some of the most innovative and productive changes come from the rank & file.
