Pros

The atmosphere and mostly intelligent co-workers makes autodesk great.

Cons

There is not enough innovation in individual products, and sometimes seems restricted by excessive management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Weed out the dumb managers, there is no room for non-computer savy people in a software company.

    Pros

    Good company, good guys! It sometimes appear to be different from rest of the Corporate America in the context that individuals are taken care of and work-life balance necessity is recognized. Pay and benefits are good. Company's strengths is in its Products. They are the best in the segment.

    Cons

    Company has grown rapidly but a number of useless creatures are holding good positions. This makes it a difficult place to deliver goods and feel satisfied! Career opportunities do not look bright once you are inside. Company's HR Policies, Marketing, systems still have a long way to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake up the middle managers. Make it a leaner organization. Simplify the processes.

    The best benefits and generous salary, but not a very exciting place to work in terms of innovation.

    I worked at Autodesk

    Pros

    Autodesk salary & benefits are like no other. It's a company that really knows how to take care of its employees. From stock options to working from home to allowing dogs at work to on-campus gym, the benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    The downside of working at Autodesk is that it's not very fast-paced and nothing like the excitement and innovation that comes in working for a start-up. Management is disconnected from the workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees and what they do better. Understand what people do before making hiring and firing decisions based on job titles alone.
