I have been working at Autodesk full-time (Less than a year)

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.

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great products. Customers love the products. Lots of autonomy to take initiative for results. Constantly innovating to lead the industry.

    Cons

    Management is spotty. Some very good managers, and some loose canons. Lots of focus on activities rather than results. There is usually a reorg every year, or even more frequently, so the job you hire into will not be the job you will be doing a year from now.

    Advice to Management

    Better training for new managers, and don't be afraid to get rid of the tyrants who do not respect their subordinates.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time

    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.
