I have been working at Autodesk as an intern for less than a year

Pros

They go out of their way to make employees feel part of the company. There are perks, such as paid volunteer, sabbatical, and nice offices.

Cons

Rounds of layoffs during stressful economic times not unknown. Benefits could be better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Build for the future. Hire for aptitude. Invest in culture. "Culture eats strategy for breakfast."

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Fantastic products that are changing the world. But innovation comes via purchasing external companies/products and there are few new internal products created that have a significant revenue impact.

    Cons

    VP and SVP level frequently throw in feature requests and product scope changes that are not grounded on data and result in a worse product. Lots of scope change, slow product development, and low product quality as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a clear decision and stick with it. Ask for data and make decisions based on the data, not based on your hopes.
