    Impressive products, hopeful business roadmap - but not necessarily a top place to work.

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Salaries seem to be pretty generous. Product suite is innovative and exciting, which made me proud to be a part of that growth. Surrounded by very smart and articulate people.

    Cons

    Job description was misleading. I felt pigeon holed when I got there, due to the extremely siloed and bureaucratic org. Lots of aggressive career climbers. Very colorful and creative office environment, but a very corporate culture in the end. No sense of sharing and community. And WAY too many meetings - most of the time with very little result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More vacation would be huge. 12 days non-negotiable is not enough. The sabbatical every 4 years is nice, but more vacation would be much more valuable in my opinion. Also, during the interview process - talk more honestly about the job. Drop the Autodesk buzz words.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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