No opinion of CEO

I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great perks! Great benefits, bring your dog to work in some locations, flex time, etc. Good training and development programs, possible career growth, but very polictical. Nice people...everyone is friendly.Great products.

Cons

Their motto is work hard, play hard...and it is very demanding company. They don't do conflict well. If you disagree with the status quo, you are looked at as a trouble maker. So, everyone agrees with the status quo, but trashes this issues or problems behind managements back. They don't talk about the 'white elephant' in the room or are direct about anything. Very polictical.

Advice to Management

Learn that conflict is ok, from disagreements, great break though and ideas can come. HR is afraid of conflict and it is suppressing the creative of the company. No one can be open or authentic. They is a lot of fear about being open and authentic there.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time

    Pros

    - Major change in strategy laid out clearly. - Great pay and stock plan. - Vacation and other benefits are so-so but ok. - Global reach and usually get to work with very smart people.

    Cons

    - Disastrous execution of reorg. - Good growth (>50%) products getting sidelined due to VP's pet project. - Weak middle management that does not question upper management decisions or edicts. - Very very political. Cannot be honest. - Fringe benefits are gone. No more dogs in most offices. No drinks or snacks. - Travel is a pain.

    Advice to Management

    Cloud thing is over done.
