    I have been working at Autodesk as a contractor

    Pros

    I love the culture around the company. They believe in their people. They want them to be the best professional-self. Many roles are extremely flexible. Working from home, in San Francisco, in San Rafael.

    Cons

    Most of the workers in positions like mine are contractors. No holiday pay. Contingent workers do not participant in company events/meetings like other FTE. Can be made too feel less inferior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire those contingents! They love the company, they want to be apart of the ADSK Family.

    Pros

    Friendly & relaxed environment. Everyone excited to make a change in design industry. Great location (San Francisco). Innovation culture.

    Cons

    When I was there, the work seemed to be a bit siloed. Different teams working on a single product are located separately and function separately.

    Pros

    Good Policy, Work life balance is great. there would be deadline with short release cycle but not to worry.
    Work is pretty simple as you will always find some patterns in other solution available.

    Cons

    there are small team so career growth is slow in ladder. sudden changes in name of re-org doesn't justify. few office are small so don't have facility like other similar big companies.
