    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

    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.
