I have been working at Autodesk full-time

Pros

Great products, great customers, fantastic reach into the design, engineering, and media communities.

Cons

Reorgs, reorgs, reorgs. Pidgeon-holed job descriptions that split authority without clearly defining authority. Lack of trust of junior and mid-level managers. Long legal processes. Lack of budget authority. Extreme matrixing.

Stop micromanaging, provide a career path for employees, and trust your very smart people.
