Pros

Excellent work-life balance, a feeling that you are really helping the world, competent and effective management who values results as well as relationship building.

Cons

In a technology based job market of outrageous IPO's, 100% growth, and a global look, the compensation is under market for technology. Partly to blame for head-count bloat outside of core-competency.

Advice to Management

Focus on core competencies. Since the software is built much like a platform or ecosystem, it's easy so think "can we go into this industry", and then "enter the consumer space", and then still "focus on BIM". The fact is that Autodesk software thrives when it's more-or-less the industry standard, so make sure adequate importance is put on capturing the lion-share of the industry IT spend wallet.

    Pros

    - Exposure to bleeding-edge technological trends and markets
    - Above average compensation and generous ESPP program

    Cons

    - M&E division (especially ISM) has poor management and lacks vision
    - Highly political

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is too far removed from customers and day-to-day operations. Always talking about wanting to innovate but not willing to roll up there sleeves and actually affect positive change.

    It's nothing I'd recommend if you cherish your health and sanity.

    Pros

    U.S. 6 week paid sabbatical every 4 years...You'll need it. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Incompetent managers thickly layered throughout. Every manager has to give 20% of their direct reports poor ratings on their yearly review so you could play the politics and not work as hard/be as savvy and make way more than a co-worker who gets things done well all year but doesn't kiss up.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some of the layers of incompetent, ineffective managers below you. It's a funnel of idiocy that has no real function!
