I have been working at Autodesk full-time (more than 8 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    During my time at Autodesk I watch divisions compete with one another at the cost of the overall company.
