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

Pros

Great team spirit, lots of collaboration opportunities - across products, across teams, across geographies. Employee benefits among the best in the business. Trusted exec management team. Suitable transparency into the health of the business - strong guidance from the top with frequent communication to global workforce.

Cons

Middle management seems pushed to limits - lots of paranoia and paralysis! Many decisions can only be made through "consensus with the world". Too many restructuring exercises resulting in job losses, product retirements and staff fatique.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time getting to know your staff - don't make rash organizational decisions without proper understanding of how it affects people, products and ultimately your customers!

    Pros

    work with competent, smart people; good pay; good benefits

    Cons

    the management changes frequently and is not always competent; they stack rank every year to get rid of a percentage of workers and hire younger for less.
