Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Autodesk full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

A great company to work for. It has very good benefits and work-life balance. The main business, CAD, is very dominating and essentially a cash cow. It has bought and continues to buy into many different industries.

Cons

It does not understand, nor does it care much, about what it bought. For example, We were in a simulation company bought by Autodesk a few years back. It not only successfully destroyed the business, but also laid off most of talented tech guys.

Advice to Management

When entering a new business, seek advice from people of that field. Don't just use experience accumulated in CAD industry.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Half-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 Management

    Be disciplined and make tough decisions. Articulate a crisp strategy.
