Great place to work, but C-Staff lacks focus and discipline

Director (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Autodesk full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat people, great products, nice working environment, opportunities for career moves within company. Excellent benefits.

ConsHalf-baked reorganizations that don't make business sense are a regular event. It feels as if C-staff isn't able to make hard decisions. There is a still an old-boys/friends of Carl club. Not many women at the highest levels.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe disciplined and make tough decisions. Articulate a crisp strategy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

VP's focused on protecting their own Asses first - Delivering great services second

Product Management (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Autodesk full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: Product groups are working on incredible products and services. If you consider a job at Autodesk, make sure… Cons: Corporate staff engrained with "old timers" who have significant power and make sure they use that power to drive their own agendas.
