I worked at Autodesk as a contractor

Pros

Autodesk seems to really care about their people - both on a personal and professional level, and exercise high standards of quality. Although I was only there as a contractor, I had a lot of visibility into the career management of the employees on my team. They definitely had ongoing opportunity to advance and learn things. Also, there is a fairly flexible work schedule. People got vacation and time off when they needed it. More importantly, the general company culture is humane and non-crazy. As a contractor, I get to see inside a lot of enterprises, and Autodesk's culture is one of the best.

Cons

In my conversations with other contractors, the most common negative that I've heard about Autodesk is "they don't have any money nowadays". The perception is that Autodesk profits by acquiring smaller companies (whose solutions often don't scale) rather than through their own innovation. This does not bode well for their long term prospects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are a technology company and you've lost your edge. You need to either decide to coast on your size or recreate a culture of innovation starting today.

    Pros

    What you work on directly impacts millions of customers. Software created at Autodesk is used by Engineers, Architects, Construction etc. Almost every you buy might have been designed or created using one of the Autodesk softwares. Great job satisfaction

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive with respect to the industry, though the benefits are great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great company! To retain good people, pay them well.
