    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing, dedicated customer and channel base Phenominal technology/products Great flexibility in terms of work-at-home options Sabbatical program that makes all the BS almost worth it

    Cons

    Lack of sophistication & commitment at senior levels in terms of brand building and marketing "Management by consensus" at the C-staff level makes it difficult to move things forward Lots of reorgs and restacks that don't seem to make things better, only more confusing

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

    Pros

    1. Great people There are many excellent senior employees around, including some pretty renowned graphics experts in both industrial and academic fields. Also, most senior employees are very proficient in software development. 2. Excellent work life balance Working here is great pleasure. you should be able to enjoy many events that autodesk holds, and you'll love hanging out with your co-workers for sure. 3. Best employer for new graduates Autodesk has a very nice mentor mechanism that helps new graduates with everything s\he should know and grasp. New graduates can learn quite a lot that will benefit for her\his whole career. This is the best thing that I can think of about Autodesk.

    Cons

    1. Politics EVERYWHERE After you get more comfortable with your work and wanna a further development, I'm telling you it is definitely NOT a smooth experience. You have to tackle the complex politics in office. You need spend quite a lot brain cycles and efforts to please your manager, and your co-workers. After time, you'll find you cannot enjoy your work as before, because you would probably be challenged by ones those think you've threatened their positions. 2. Unbalanced management structure This may explain #1. One manager, or architect, controls everything of your work. If you are not getting along with her\him\one of them, you are done. Change a team then. There's nothing you can do with it. Nothing in management is balanced.
