It's a great company if you can insulate yourself from the politics.

Pros

There are a lot of opportunities for growth, and managers are very open to helping their employees develop towards a position they'd like to eventually try out elsewhere in the company. If you get in on a product team, you're set. If you work on a small enough team, your tenure will probably be pretty fun. Other good things: they allow dogs on the premises, they have good benefits, their branding colors are a cool blue, and there's a decent culture.

Cons

If you're pulled into the politics, it's hell. There are some bad apples in upper management positions that have zero respect for the little guys. Also, if you get pulled into the IT cube life, it can quickly deaden you.

Advice to Management

Don't be jackasses. Pay more attention to what individuals are doing to contribute. We're not just statistics.

    Pros

    The atmosphere and mostly intelligent co-workers makes autodesk great.

    Cons

    There is not enough innovation in individual products, and sometimes seems restricted by excessive management.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the dumb managers, there is no room for non-computer savy people in a software company.

    Pros

    Good company, good guys! It sometimes appear to be different from rest of the Corporate America in the context that individuals are taken care of and work-life balance necessity is recognized. Pay and benefits are good. Company's strengths is in its Products. They are the best in the segment.

    Cons

    Company has grown rapidly but a number of useless creatures are holding good positions. This makes it a difficult place to deliver goods and feel satisfied! Career opportunities do not look bright once you are inside. Company's HR Policies, Marketing, systems still have a long way to go.

    Advice to Management

    Shake up the middle managers. Make it a leaner organization. Simplify the processes.
